and that an XBMC problem because ?

Seriously, file an issue on their github. It's their distro and they are responsible for it.

You might want to use CronicCorey Buildroot tree which is much more updated, Corey already added support to M3, look at https://github.com/CoreTech-Development/..._defconfig (though you might need to adapt the ref16 config from https://github.com/J1nx-Hackable-Gadgets..._defconfig )
Also the XBMC tree of CronicCorey is updated and works great with M3 (I already tried it with J1nx buildroot tree).
Kernel wise, I believe you'll need to enable the "Realtek EU series (8188EU 8188ETV) Wireless USB Dongle support (NEW)" module in the kernel, this one might be included only in the latest kernel sources of Amlogic, See https://github.com/j1nx/Openlinux.Amlogic.M3

As it is indeed one happy family, I updated the M3 stuff for TLBB towards the same 2013.11 buildroot code as the MX one. This code has been flow back to Corey's branch where he has start supporting the xios on that code.

Without knowing exactly which wifi driver you have troubles with, I suspect you ended up with a M3 board design with a rtl8188EU wifi. The original rtl8188CU within the earlier boxes is discontinued by realtek, but the rtl8188ETV as replacement runs on the same driver so should just work. The 8188EU indeed does not work correctly with the CU driver. It basically only requires you to change the wifi driver within the defconfig file from the 8188CUS to the 8188EU and recompile.

dear j1nx
tks for your commetns, and also thanks for your efforts on the M3 chip.
now i have got the patch , need to change wext into nl80211 inside the patch also, but the guy who made the patch does not know how to compile it, shall i send you the patch, and then you can compile it and have one new upgrading file.
tks again.

Let me start with; How on earth can someone make a patch, but don't know how to compile Huh

Secondly; the 2.6.34.x kernel does not support nl80211. The wifi driver has some >2.6.37 <2.6.39 support if needed, but you really should go up to 2.6.39. As we are using 2.6.34.14 (or 15), patching the driver to nl80211 is not doing you any good.

Actually, we stepped away from the in-xbmc way of configuring the network and instead, implemented the more "normal" linux way using NetworkManager (wext based) and the a bit older NetworkManager xbmc plugin.

Anyway, if it is a ETV, it should just work on the same CUS driver.
