[SOLVED] TP-LINK TL-WN823N working on Linux Mint 18 Sarah

Post by cornishlobster » Sun Nov 06, 2016 3:14 pm

Just wanted to let others know, who might also have been pulling their hair out over this one.

After buying a TP LINK (model TL-WN823N) wireless adapter I spent ages hunting around for the correct drivers. Many of the help pages tell you to install the 8192cu drivers, but the only way I could get the little rascal to work was using the 8192eu drivers (one comment at the bottom of a Raspbian help page pointed me to the URL) !! https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver
Just need to git clone the directory cd in and do the normal:

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver.git

Code: Select all

cd rtl8192eu-linux-driver

Code: Select all

sudo make 

Code: Select all

sudo make install

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe 8192
Now, plug the little blighter in and hey presto, you get the reassuring little green light blinking away at you !

PS. This is my first post and I'm aware I've probably made a number of formating // general forum post errors, so please forgive me :)

You could have just asked here as I know something about how that device is supported by Mange's module https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linu ... 5c58854b83
