Ok thanks for your answer!
I installed a PCI NERGEATR WG311 wifi card but do not appear in the Network tab settings "wireless LAN" means that this card is not supported?
Using version v4.4c DEMO!
Thanks in advance

Meteohub comes prepared for a very limited set of WLAN adapters.

Meteohub's WLAN capabilities are baed on ndiswrapper. So you have to install the necessary windows drivers for your card (as always with ndiswrapper). Apart from that please have a look at /etc/rc.boot/initsensors which controls during boot if WLAN is used by Meteohub or not. When you are familar with bash scripts that should be easy reading.

Good luck!
