USB WiFi

RE: USB WiFi
USB support is quite recent, and Wifi have not gotten any love for quite some time. so "no" there is no supported USB wifi (only) nics supported.
There however is ACM, NCM, ECM USB support
Where ACM is the common type of NIC that you get by enabling tethering on a Android (I do think iOS has the same)
So by using a phone that you connect to the wifi (all wifi settings are done on the phone) you will be able to "get" wifi. But do note that it will be a separate network between computer and phone, so iPXE will not see the wifi network, only the "phone network"

build with
Code:
make bin-x86_64/acm--ncm--ecm--axge.efi
Some info about that build target and others are found on the http://ipxe.org/appnote/buildtargets page

Note that the ipxe build target does not include any usb drivers.
Also don't use sudo, build as a limited user, and if there is any particular reason that you are building as root - fix that instead.

Use GitHub Discussions
VRAM bin
