EDU - wi fi dongle light?

We are trying to use both GoPiGo and Brickpi in the classroom. We notice that the wifi dongle on the brickpi will light up (a low green light);but it does not appear on the GoPiGo. Should it? We are having trouble connecting to our dex local via CINCH.

Could you clarified/screenshot what is happening? I take it as raspbian for robots isn’t recognizing the dongle?
