both pi devices are getting the ip from the same dongle...your router is only seeing the single dongle, whereas your pi devices are picking their ip from the same dongle..so another dongle for the other pi device will solve the problem

The reason for this is the lease time from the dhcp in your router, the dhcp lease work together with the mac address, this is the reason why both Pi's get the same IP. You can fix it on using different Wifi dongle or you change the wifi configuration in your Pi's to set up a fixed address.

thanks for the answer. I already had the packages installed and the "non-free" argument appended in sources.list. The linux-headers packages are unavailable for some reason... I edited my /etc/network/interfaces file to add these lines: auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wpa-ssid YOUR-SSID-HERE wpa-psk YOUR-PASSWORD-HERE I generated my "wpa-psk" ...

Yes, you can do this, and it's not even that hard. I have a laptop with a wireless card, and an ethernet port. I plugged a RapberryPi running Arch Linux into it, via a "crossover" ethernet cable. That's one special thing you might need - not all ethernet cards can do a machine-to-machine direct connection. The other tricky part is IP addressing. It's best ...

Is it possible? Absolutely. All you need to do is configure IP forwarding, or routing, or some other (simple) way of moving packets from the ethernet port on the laptop to the WiFi on the laptop and vice-versa. Is it a good idea? Probably not - your network admins might get a tad upset with you.

I think that ifconfig is not handling wireless stuff like ESSID, channel and key. Take a look to iwconfig instead. http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/vivid/it/man8/iwconfig.8.html

I somehow made the Wi-Fi working, but I don't exactly know what I needed to achieve that. I think installing firmware for QCA9377 and linux kernel 4.4.0 solved the problem. I'll list how to do that below, hoping that other peoples with Debian on the same Lenovo Ideapad 500S-14ISK might can help themselves with it. What I did to solve the problem I think is ...

The default WICD doesn't have the PEAP with MSCHAPv2 template. Try this: nano /etc/wicd/encryption/templates/any_name Create the folowing template: name = PEAP with TKIP/MSCHAPv2 author = unknown version = 1 require identity *Identity password *Password ----- ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant network={ ssid="$_ESSID" ...

This does not seem to be related to CA cert, neither is this likely to be caused by DBUS. Most likely, you are trying to authenticate using the wrong protocol (PEAP with TKIP/MSCHAPV2) Similar problem is described here. The solution is to use PEAP with GTC instead of PEAP with TKIP/MSCHAPV2.

I was advised to put all three rpm packages in one directory and run one command and so I did and it worked. So I put kmod-wl-4.2.3-300.fc23.x86_64-6.30.223.271-4.fc23.x86_64.rpm kmod-wl-6.30.223.271-4.fc23.x86_64.rpm broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-1.fc23.noarch.rpm in a new directory and ran sudo rpm -ivh *.rpm It worked and after rebooting the system I ...

I have now gotten it to work. The problem was very low antenna gain. By moving it away from nearby metal objects and holding it sideways, up-side down, etc. it was possible to make it associate and work normally. A very physical solution to a technical problem. I guess anything below -80 dB should be suspect.
