Really doesn't matter. Any raspberry will do.

I am running it on Odroid which is also acting as micro NAS amongst other things.

Your pi 0 probably isn't connected to wifi. If I remember correctly, you must copy a file called wpa_supplicant.conf after you burn the images onto the sd card. That way it knows how to connect to your wifi when it boots for the first time.

Log in to your router and find the IP via hostname (it'll probably just be Pi or something). While you're there set your router to give your pi that same ip address permanently

You should find the mac address and set the IP. What raspberry pi you have and did you install Raspberry Pi OS?

Or you know what, make your life easier man, just go ahead and install raspian on your pi and hook it up to a monitor and keyboard and setup your pi directly

It's really easy, basically use notepad++ and create a file called 'wpa_supplicant.conf' you then enter your network info into the file and copy the file into the home directory of the sd card. I believe the link above explains it better. When you pi boots, it finds that file and uses it to connect.

I dont have the W model, mine is wired only, I think.

Unfortunately, I believe that means you won't be able to connect it to your network. I'd recommend getting a pi 0 W...they're like $11 USD.

I don't think he has the W version...he has no way of connecting to his network.

I don't think the zero has a wired version...as far as I know. Either it has wifi capability or it doesn't...

You can use this guide on every Raspberry Pi. It's usually done if you can't plug a monitor and mouse and keyboard

Sweet...yeah, follow the link we gave you. If that doesn't load or whatever, just google 'wpa_supplicant raspberry pi zero'. It's pretty simple but you won't be able to connect without adding that.
