This sub-section offers an out-of-the-box configuration of the Raspberry Pi and enables your IPFire system to connect to the Internet via a wireless network (802.11). This can be your own wireless network or your neighbors. You will be able to connect to it as a client and IPFire will route your local networks through this wireless link. See [Wireless Client](/configuration/system/wlanclient).

In the IPFire setup **Extended Network Menu** the **<color green>GREEN</color>** network is the on-board Ethernet port and is known as `usb: Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514...` The **<color red>RED</color>** network is the USB Ethernet adapter and starts with `usb:`. e.g., my USB Ethernet adapter is known as `usb: ASIX Electronics AX88179 Gigabit Ethernet`.
