I just bought a wlan stick as my pi3 is going to get a metal case, so the internal wlan won’t be the right choice.
when i plug the stick in an boot, i can see the wlan1 already using ifconfig -a
wlan1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr b8:27:eb:07:54:c8
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:18 errors:0 dropped:18 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:4526 (4.4 KiB) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
Now i am not sure how i can manage to disable the internal wlan0 and use wlan1 as the standard wlan interface. The wpa_supplicant.conf already has the right information (as wlan0 is connected).
i tried to replace “wlan0” with “wlan1” in the /etc/network/interface file but nothing changed. I also tried to add wlan 1 there
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet manual
iface wlan1 inet manual
Can someone tell me what i am doing wrong?
