[clug] Debian Live persistence

Hi, I was hoping that someone on the CLUG list would be able to help me 
on this issue. Recently, I downloaded an iso from a debian website. It 
was debian-live-9.4.0-amd64-gnome.iso. I used rufus 2.18 to extract the 
iso file onto a usb drive. The usb drive was partitioned as a FAT32 
I was able to get Debian to run from the USB. The various folders and 
files are visible in Windows and can be edited.There are two issues.
1) I would like to add the persistence feature to the Debian Live USB. I 
researched this online and the article said that the persistence drive 
has to be partitioned separate to the Debian Live installed software. 
Also, the separate partition has to be partitioned into a ext4 
partition. I have had trouble trying to do this and while getting Debian 
to boot live from a USB took me longer than expected, I am finding 
myself going around in a circle not being able to get anywhere on this 
2) There does not seem to be a wifi connection in the settings. I had a 
look on the internet and I think I might have to download the driver. If 
that is the case, there is no point addressing this issue until I can 
fix the first issue.
Does anyone have any ideas on these issues?
