I replaced the wifi dongle and now show 2 wlans, I config. wlan1 and everything is working fine. Is there way to remove wlan0 from the list?



Is this on a Pi or Beagle?

Pi's have WiFi built-in, so if you added a WiFi dongle then it will have two wlans.  You can disable the on-board WiFi using the DisableOnboardWifi-Pi3 script that you can install from the Script Repository.

If its a Beagle, then I'm guessing at some point you clicked on the "Create Persistent Names" button on the Network Configuration screen.   Try clicking the "Clear Persistent Names" button and reboot.


Thanks, it's a pi and I thought both of the wlans were somehow related to the USB. The script did the trick.


Did you need to add a Wi-Fi dongle? The on-board Wi-Fi works pretty well.
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.


Not a 100% sure I needed it. I have a p5 matrix in a window inside the house while the wifi router is outside. The pi was showing a signal strength of "Poor" so I thought I would try a dongle with an antenna.


I can only access my Pi with the laptop connected to a router and the router connected to the Pi. I probably don't have it set up correctly.
