Acer Aspire Revo 3700 + XBMC Live V.10 – Wireless setup using WPAWPA2

Had a brainache on this one so here’s what i used to fix it:-

Start the Acer to boot into xbmc
Once you are into the dashboard


sudo su
mkdir -p /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/
touch /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/RT2860STA.dat

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid your access point
wpa-ap-scan 1
wpa-proto WPA
wpa-pairwise TKIP
wpa-group TKIP
wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
wpa-psk your wpa key

Save it (CTRL X)
Press Y
Press Enter

Remove the Network cable

sudo shutdown 0 -r

Boot back into the dashboard
Scroll down to System (Do not press Enter)
Press right arrow and System Info
Network Settings
If it has worked you have a ip address via wireless

Happy Days!
