Ok, so I use Openwrt on a Raspberry PI (model one, in case you ask) and I have bought a WiFi USB dongle with a RTL 8811 chip inside and guess what? IT DOESN'T WORK
What I have tryed so far:
installed kmod-rtl8xxxu driver
tryed to compile a driver from
https://github.com/fastoe/RTL8811CU_for_Raspbian, but no matter what I try it always fail to compile with the following message:
/bin/sh: cc: not found
(standard_in) 1: syntax error
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/4.14.209/build M=/root/RTL8811CU_for_Raspbian modules
make: *** /lib/modules/4.14.209/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [Makefile:2214: modules] Error 2
Please can you give me CLEAR instructions where to find a suitable driver and how to compile/install?
I need straight, fluff-free instruction please.
Might be helpfull (or not):
I'm aware there are two topics about this driver, but both go off topic and have no answer.
The question is how to compile the rtl8811cu driver for openwrt and get it working?
don't mind the speed, AP mode, etc. I just need it to work as a client mode.
Not helpful at all.
Always the same s**t but no solution, I think I will quit with this garbage (openwrt). The dongle works with every other os except openwrt
you're barking up the wrong tree, buddy.
Direct your hate towards Realtek - their hardware, their design, their drivers, their support (or in this case, lack of).
Well... Don't let the door hit you on your way out!
And do some research
before you buy cheap crap next time. And a real router.
for the fun of it, find and fire up a linux distro based the same 4.14 kernel you posted previously,
plug in the 8811 wifi dongle, does it work ?
