Rock64 RTL8812AU dongle (from store) how to get working on Android?
#1
Hello I have rock64 running Android OS. I bought the following usb wifi dongle from pine64 store. 

https://www.pine64.org/?product=rock64-u...au-adapter

How do I get working on android please? I connected but it doesn't do anything. Do I need to configure wifi settings? If so can someone please tell me what settings to configure and how to do it? Thank you.

Works out-of-the-box for me. Did you plug it into the OTG USB port ? if so, try a different port (I've had one instance, when I booted with the adaptor in the OTG port, then unplugged it and plugged it into a different USB and it started working). 
You have to activate it in Android obviously in network settings.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

Thanks for reply. How do I activate in network settings? When I go there I don't know what to do as there is only usual options for wifi Ethernet etc. No options to change adapter or anything from what I can tell. I tried all USB ports but it didn't work with any of them but when I plugged the adapter into my pc it started working straight away. I might be missing something obvious?

All I have to do is flick this on in Network Settings (to the right of settings at the bottom in main menu)  to have the networks list. Same adaptor. 
ATV build - believe its the same for stock android.

That works for a universal wifi adapter? What version of Android TV do you use? Ayufan? 6.0?
