wifi dongle
#1
Hello,

I received this week my rock64 sbc and i installed ubuntu with etcher from image file: xenial-mate-rock64-0.5.5-136-arm64.img.xz. This gives a system version 16.04.3LTS with a kernel 4.4.77-rockchip-ayufan-136aarch64.

I also bought this wifi dongle (https://www.pine64.org/?product=usb-wifi...for-rock64), but i don't succed to make it working. It is well detected by the sbc (from lsusb output). Even after executing the command "sudo iw reg set FR" (i am in France), i don't succed to configure an internet connection with this wifi dongle.
Someone can help?

regards

does it show up in ifconfig -a ? or lsmod | grep 8188 ?

hi evilbunny
thanks for your reply

lsmod | grep 8188 gives 8188eu 1613824 0

and ifconfig - a lists 4 devices:
eth0 .... my GigE interface
lo...........
p2p0.............
wlx0013ef8043ec ................. which is the device selceted (there was one choice) )when i added a wifi connection.

As i am a beginner on ubuntu, i suppose/hope that this is my parameterization of the wifi connection that is wrong, but as when i added a wifi connection ubuntu suggested nothing......
Any idea ?

hi,

that's ok now, this works perfectly. It was my fault. I did not setup the wifi connection by the good way: i was using the 'Network connections' dialog rather than simply the wifi icon which was masked . In fact, it's too easy, don't laught at me please.
