Henrique_mg, you need to configure your network settings.
Insert micro SD card from your StewreoPi to the cardreader of your computer. You will see new disk, called "BOOT". Open it, find "stereopi.conf" file, and put settings according to this guide from our Wiki.

Cite from wiki:
you need to fill 3 parameters to enable WiFi
wifi_iface = wlan0
wifi_ssid=my-access-point-name
wifi_psk=mypassword

Replace 'my-access-point-name' and 'mypassword' with the name and password of your WiFi access point.

Google says this chipset is not supported by Raspbian out of the box. You may either use another WiFi dongle, or install drivers for this module. It is described, for example, in this thread:

Looks like you are using SLP image. It has read-onlu file system for safety reasons (as it is industrial-like solution).
You can find details here in our wiki.
To unlock filesystem you can:
1. Use this code:

Code: Select all

sudo mount -o rw,remount /
2. If you can access admin panel over network, go to the file manager icon, and press "Unlock filesystem" link at the top of the page.

Both methods gives you the same result.
