I've dropped 17.01.2 onto an SD card an slipped it into an RPi3, and all has gone well so far. I am now trying to get a USB WiFi adaptor working because I would like to turn this into a travel router, but am struggling. The WiFi adaptor uses the RTL8192EU chipset, so I have installed the RTL8192CU drivers as I believe these are the same? I've also installed kmod-usb2. The whole lot was rebooted, the /etc/config/wireless file removed and the command
wifi config. Unfortunately I still only have the RPi radio available:
root@LEDE:~# cat /etc/config/wireless config wifi-device 'radio0' option type 'mac80211' option channel '11' option hwmode '11g' option path 'platform/soc/3f300000.mmc/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:0001/mmc1:0001:1' option htmode 'HT20' option disabled '1' config wifi-iface 'default_radio0' option device 'radio0' option network 'lan' option mode 'ap' option ssid 'LEDE' option encryption 'none'
root@LEDE:~# opkg list | grep rtl kmod-rtl8192c-common - 4.4.71+2017-01-31-2 kmod-rtl8192cu - 4.4.71+2017-01-31-2 kmod-rtlwifi - 4.4.71+2017-01-31-2 kmod-rtlwifi-usb - 4.4.71+2017-01-31-2 rtl8192cu-firmware - 2016-09-21-42ad5367-1

RTL drivers loading:
root@LEDE:~# dmesg | grep rtl [ 6.004708] usbcore: registered new interface driver rtl8192cu
Does anybody know if the RTL8192CU drivers will work with RTL8192EU? Have I missed something, or am I flogging a dead horse?
Thanks for the help
