Discovered that after building the tp2 kernel the wifi was disabled. Didn't have luck finding wifi driver to compile. So used one that was loaded from root.tar.gz to solve the problem. Here is the procedure. The procedure assumes the tp2 is running on the drive with the rebuilt kernel and logged in as root with ssh.

Attach ubi and mount the tonido kernel
ubiattach /dev/ubi_ctrl -m 3
mount -t ubifs ubi0:rootfs /mnt/

Copy the plug wifi driver and dismount the tonido kernel.
cp -r /mnt/lib/modules/2.6.31.8-topkick1281p2-001-004-20101214/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ /lib/modules/2.6.31.8-topkick1281p2-001-004-20101214/kernel/drivers/net/
umount /mnt

Install the driver and check their loaded
depmod -a
modprobe mlan
modprobe sd8xxx

lsmod
Should show
sd8xxx 123216 1
mlan 185849 1 sd8xxx

Log onto your.tonidoid.com and enable wifi.
