Edimax EW-7811UAC

Post by rsbay »


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
https://edimax.freshdesk.com/support/so ... -than-v4-1
https://askubuntu.com/questions/509498/ ... -ew-7811un

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)
