Re: Install driver of TL-WN722N Version 3 on Raspberry Pi 2

If you are using Raspbian OS you do not need to install a driver as it is included in the image.

You should just need to set up the wifi configuration correctly to get it working.

Re: Pi 3B can't configure wlan0 interface

For a start your wpa_supplicant.conf file is missing some lines at the beginning. It should look more like:

Code: Select all

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1
country=US

network={
	ssid="network-name"
	key_mgmt=NONE

Re: Installing drivers for tp link wn722n

Just checked the WN722N wifi on https://wikidevi.com/wiki/TP-LINK_TL-WN722N and it appears there are at least 3 versions. The original WN722 v1 uses the ath9k_htc driver and WN722N v2 and WN722N v3 use the r8188eu driver. Both of these drivers are included in the Raspbian image so you should not nee...

Re: Looking for Driver RTL8812BU for RPI 3B+

Hi liquizell,

I have 8822bu drivers available compiled for Raspbian OS.

Install the script as described here viewtopic.php?t=178405#p1136676 then run the script and it should automatically determine the driver version you need and install it.

Any chance you have a driver for Stretch:

Yes. Install the script as detailed in the post before yours and then run the script and it will automatically determine the driver version you need and install it.

With Raspbian Stretch do not edit file /etc/network/interfaces to configure your network connection. Put I back to the default. Then you should set up the wifi by editing file /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf like :- ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev update_config=1 coun...

Maybe you have a problem with the SD card socket on the Pi so it cannot read the SD card.

In crontab you probably need to include the directory where your script is. e.g. * * * * * /home/pi/myscript.sh or whatever it actually is.
