It does not have built-in WiFi or BT.  I doubt that we will build it in, but we MAY (in the future) create the ability to add it internally.

I have now installed a switch to and added WLAN.

For this I have bought on ebay a 2 + 1 port switch. But really it was a 4 port switch. This is the switch I bought:

Then I bought an EDIMAX EW-7811UN WLAN stick.

Then I wired everything as stated here and it all seems to work. Of course I have the switch and the wlan stick still isolated, so there are no problems.

Hey Sam, I purchased the same Edimax Bluetooth/Wifi combo USB dongle you use in your video, and was going to attempt this mod. However, I can't figure out how to install the drivers, since that requires wifi. Did you just use a different wifi dongle in order to install the drivers to get it working?

I'm not so sure you broke the Edimax dongle. I have not been able to get the unmodified dongle to work, and I haven't came across anyone that has yet.
