Post by serbian_speed » Wed Jul 26, 2017 2:23 am

for version 2 the driver provided on official website don't work it has chip-set of RTL8188 so install "lwfinger" drivers

step:1 make a temporary directory

$ mkdir tmp

step:2 move to temporary directory

$ cd tmp

step:3 clone driver repository

$ git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu.git

step:4 change directory of cloned repo !

$ cd rtl8188eu

step:5 make the driver for your system (Note: you should have kernal headers to make, google it !)

$ make all

step:6 after successful make

$ sudo make install

step:7 reboot your system

$ sudo reboot

after rebooting you will see the notification light turning on. have a nice day :)

I followed these directions to no avail. Everything completed successfully, but my adapter is not recognized when I plug it into any of the usb ports. I'm not sure what my next step should be. I'm quite upset with this adapter.
