piCorePlayer includes the extension net-usb-KERNEL.tcz on the pCP image for those occasions when you have a RPi with a spare USB port but no Ethernet port and want to connect to a wired network. By default this extension is not loaded. To facilitate a headless install of net-usb-KERNEL.tcz, piCorePlayer looks for a file named netusb on the boot partition. Step 1 Add an empty file “netusb” to boot partition. This will instruct piCorePlayer to load the appropriate firmware during the boot process.
