Hello! I've been having a few issues with setting up my DreamPi via wifi. I'm just going to get this out of the way to try and be as descriptive as possible: It worked when I plugged it in to an ethernet cable (I got both green lights), but when I'm using my WiPi adapter, even after using the sudo wificonfig utility I can't seem to get the dreampi to use the adapter properly.

I honestly have no idea why you had issues with it. I developed the utility myself. It's about as simple as it gets. It simply edits the same files you edit when you configure the Wi-Fi manually. It's an automatic text editor basically. The only known issue is that it doesn't support Wi-Fi networks with spaces in them. If that's the case then you need to either change your SSID or configure manually. But yeah, other than that there really isn't anything that can go wrong with such a simple program. You're the only one I know of that hasn't been able to get it to work.
Anyway, here's the manual configuration video if you need it:
Edit: Just remembered one other thing. It won't work if you have SSID broadcasting turned off on your router. It's very rare that anyone does this but I do recall one person that had this issue. The utility was made with fairly typical modern networks in mind so if you have any weird settings like that or use old security protocols like WEP (don't do this! ), you need to configure manually.

I had issues with the "wificonfig" utility in DreamPi today when re-setting up my SDCard for DPi1.7.
The script doesn't ask for country code (I have a RPI3b+) needed for wifi to work. It would also be nice if the script displayed whether wifi was already connected, and display your IP as that information is not visible from the console easily. I know you can "ifconfig" but for new people trying to setup, it would just make it much simpler if the script told whether wifi was working or not before they proceed to enable/disable it again.
