    Hi,
    I have Android-x86 4.4-r1 Live CD running on my Desktop PC but it does not scan/recognize my home Wi-Fi network.
    What do I have to do?

    It's possible your Wi-Fi adapter isn't being detected. That said, I can't seem to find a list of what adapters are compatible with the Android Live CD, so perhaps someone else more familiar with the Android x86 project may have further ideas.

    My Wi-Fi adapter is TRENDnet TEW-6528RP (router) and TRENDnet TEW649UB (Toggle).
    By The Way:
    Samsung Galaxy S4, running on Android 4.3 (Kernel 3.4.5-2057364) has no problem to recognize
    the TRENDnet Wi-Fi adapter and connect to the Internet.

    The PC and S4 don't recognize the router, they recognize the hardware inside themselves. Your S4 recognizes its own wifi radio. What Devhux is saying is that your Android Live installation may not be recognizing the wifi adapter in the PC. In your case, since you're running a USB wifi adapter, you'd need the Linux driver for that adapter - which Trendnet probably never wrote. (Trendnet is cheap, but you'll find that Linux will recognize PCI adapters using the Broadcom chipset in almost all cases - adapters like Linksys or D-Link, which cost considerably more.)

    Thanks! I got the picture.
    Is there a complete list of WiFi adapters supported by Android Live CD?
    (BTW I run Ubunte Linux on my PC and never had a problem with TRENDnet.
