I did a quick search on ebay and this one came up https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293040946706

In the description it says "Supports Linux (requires install of rtl8188fu driver from Github )". I hope it does what you want.
Looks OK. Thanks rpdom.

Re: Code to execute wi-fi dongle doesnt work

Hi guys,

Can someone point me to where I can purchase a wifi adapter using the 8188fu driver?

I've spent ages searching for a supplier but haven't been able to find anywhere.

Re: Code to execute wi-fi dongle doesnt work

MrEngman thank you so much. Just as I tried in many ways to resolve the problem, you would have worked on the script to remove the error. I ran the install script once again but it got stuck at Loading and running the 8188fu driver, rtl8188fu.ko. This may be because of https://www.raspberrypi.org/f...

Hi deepakdeshp, I've updated the wifi drivers using the code from https://github.com/kelebek333/rtl8188fu and it compiles fine without any problems. I've also updated the install-wifi script so it can install the new driver as the new driver uses a slightly different name and a separate firmware fil...

Re: Code to execute wi-fi dongle doesnt work

Firstly, if you are using Raspbian Stretch you should be running a 4.19 kernel, not a 4.14 one. If you do a "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade", then reboot you will be running the 4.19 kernel. After upgrading you may find that your wifi dongle drivers are already present.

Re: Restart on Crash

There's a item called watchdog that you can use to restart your Pi.

I've no idea myself how to use it but there's plenty of stuff about it in the forum. Just search for "watchdog".
