For our project we need to connect to a 5-Ghz band wifi network. Currently we are trying to use the USB RealTek adapter with the following driver:
At first we had problems compiling the driver but was able to get the module to compile and load it into the kernel thanks to the post here. Now we are having trouble getting the pi to actually connect to the network when the application starts. I was able to connect after ssh-ing into the container and using
wpa_supplicant to set up the network. We were also able to get it working on boot with a regular old raspbian image (not through resin).
Our current strategy has been to add edit the /etc/network/interfaces file to reference a wpa_supplicant config file, but we haven’t had any luck with that. Have also tried editing the NetworkManager config file on the resin-boot partition but have not been successful.
I think that ideally coping the module to
/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless might fix this, but that location is not writable from the container
Any suggestions would be great!
