Hi,

Sorry for the long vent.


For what it's worth... I completely understand your frustration. I have many hobby boards including several RPI, Qualcomm Dragonboard and a few Allwinner based boards. It seems like I am always hacking something together when I am working with my Linux-based IoT hobby projects.

Why did the OS missed the USB Wifi on first ifconfig?
Or did it missed RPi interface?

When I did an OUI lookup on your MAC address it looks like the raspberry pi ethernet is the only interface available in your first ifconfig.

It sounds like a timing issue which is one of the most common problems I seem to face on these boards.

If I were debugging this I would first make sure that the USB device is present after booting the board:
lsusb

If the USB device is listed then you probably have a timing issue where the device is not ready when your network comes up. The easiest 'hack' to fix this would be a simple network restart at the end of your init script:
/etc/init.d/networking restart

I actually have this 'hack' on two of my Allwinner based boards and both of them have a USB wifi/ethernet.

I am not a Linux guru so don't listen to me. There are probably other ways to fix USB timing issues on Linux.

Best Wishes,
-David Delaune
