Tried the manual fix but was not successful. I'll wait for the new image to be released. I hope it will be announced soon. Well, it looks like I have the fixed version. Hmmmmmm. Don't understand why it wont work. Guess no football for me.
Quick update, I am able to get version 1.7 to work through the ether-net cable but not with my wi-fi adapter. Seems my Canakit and tp-link USB wifi adapters don't work with 1.7. They work fine with 1.6. I cannot get any lights on the wifi adapters nor 2 green lights on the modem. Is there an update I need to make on my pi??
FInal update. I updated the pi using the 1.6 image. Took about 15 minutes, but after all that, my pi will not recognize my usb wifi still. 1.6 works however. So if there is no solution for this, then I'll have to buy another pi with wifi built in.
