Thanks for the report, hopefully its just the firmware that required. This is no longer installed by default for ralink, as firmware-misc-nonfree contains mostly intel/nvidia firmware.

Please try installing the package, reboot system then retry:

G_AGI firmware-misc-nonfree
reboot

--

NB: i'll make firmware-misc-nonfree default install for future images.

8MB, but, needed to prevent user having issues with missing ralink firmware.

8,155 kB of additional disk space will be used.

Perfect, it works thanks ! and is it possible to insert a command in the dietpi.txt file after burning the image to install this package on first boot?

We'll update the image to v6.6 and include the package by default. Few days.
