Do you mean these drivers -> kmod-usb-net kmod-usb-net-cdc-ether kmod-usb-net-rndis?

Pi Zero has no radio! WIFI can be configured in meny different whays!
What about to open SSH port for WAN interface?

You are right here! When I SSH through LAN how to get connected to the internet?

Saw it long time ago!
