I received my Dreamcatcher kit yesterday and was able to flash the 8 GB micro sd card with Armbian_5.27_Dreamcatcher_Debian_jessie_next_4.10.14_20170602.img and boot up.
Connections | USB_PWR | The power supply is 5 VDC 2.1 A

LED8 USR2 | Flashing yellow/light green (not sure what color it is)
LED9 PWR | White
LED10 STATUS | Green
LED11 AGP3 | Red
USB WIFI | WIFI EDUP dongle
I can talk to it over USB using Putty in Windows 10 (Lenovo Win7 PC) with serial settings 115200 N 8 1. When I first received the board the WiFi dongle (small USB plug, EDUP 802.11N Model EP-N8508GS) there was a yellow or green light when power was applied to the Dreamcatcher board. I also tried a second time to relfash the microsd card after I issed the SUDO poweroff (actually my entire computer shut off immediately! - I wonder if it was trying to pull a lot of power during the power down sequence from my computer that caused it to shut down or something shorted during the same sequence?). If I plug the WiFi USB dongle it into my windows computer it does light up. I however never saw the outernet SSID on my WiFo network. I have used NMTUI to setup the connection to my wireless network but I don’t see how to activate it. It doesn’t come up in the NMTUI menu (Activate a connection). I thought the light did come on when I first had everything setup.
I am wondering if there are other files or drivers I need or a command line command I need to issue to turn it on?

So is there sofware I missing or a process or step?
