Edimax EW-7811UAC


I’ve tried to install a WLAN connection with the Edimax EW-7811UAC USB WLAN adapter on a Raspberry Pi 2B and 3. I don’t succeed, the driver is missing. Although the manufacturer delivers the Linux source code for the driver.

Has anyone installed this WLAN adapter or is there a chance to get the driver within the standard DietPi?

Thank for your help


Not sure if that module is pre-compiled

That’s for installing the linux-headers and build-essential dkms git

Might see if it’s already done

Do a $ sudo modprobe rtl8812au

If that works…then try putting that in /etc/default/modules (I believe)
