WiFi Dongle not work

I’m following the instruction on the following link:
WiFi - MOD Wiki (moddevices.com)
When running systemctl restart wpa-supplicant-wlan0 dhcpcd-wlan0
I got:
A dependency job for dhcpcd-wlan0.service failed. See ‘journalctl -xe’ for details.
A dependency job for wpa-supplicant-wlan0.service failed. See ‘journalctl -xe’ for details.

This is still an experimental feature, but maybe @falkTX has a clue on what may be happening.

This would be a nice feature to get working. I have a WiFi dongle that works with my Linux desktop, but doesn’t work on the Dwarf.

Hi,
What do you have when you ask journalctl -xe ?
Which version of the OS do you use ?
Which dongle ?
