I can download my Balena image to a Raspberry Pi ZeroW, and it connects fine.
When I use a Pi Zero (without the built-in wifi), if I use an Edimax (Realtek) wifi dongle it doesn’t connect, or even light up, and (going in through the console) it doesn’t seem to be finding the rtl8192cu driver for it.
It’s seeing the device, but not finding the driver:
[ 2.705093] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=7392, idProduct=7811 [ 2.713584] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 2.722297] usb 1-1: Product: 802.11n WLAN Adapter [ 2.728656] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Realtek [ 2.734286] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 00e04c000001
I would expect to see: ’ usbcore: registered new interface driver rtl8192cu’ after this.
If I use the Official Raspberry Pi (Broadcom) wifi dongle, that works fine:
/: Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=dwc_otg/1p, 480M |__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 0, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=brcmfmac, 480M
I see there’s an ‘rtl8xxxu.ko’ driver in /lib/modules/4.14.98/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/realtek/rtl8xxxu
is that not quite the right one, maybe?
That’s exhausted my knowledge on device drivers.
What can I do to get it to see my Edimax WiFi dongle, please?
