Re: Trying to get an RTL8188CUS wireless USB NIC working.

FYI - the Adafruit Occidentalis v0.1 image, based on Rasbpian Wheezy, includes the 8192cu driver in the kernel

Re: Success with KB, Mouse & WiFi?

<t>Thanks for the feedback.  Glad to know there is possible cause other than power (my TP1/TP2 was always at least 5V).  I'm hoping to get access to a Pi again to test further next week (being shared with multiple people my office).  I think my first step will be trying out the latest github kernel....

Re: Trying to get an RTL8188CUS wireless USB NIC working.

<r>@bodgyuk ah, ok. I understand better now. Are you able to mount the Linux partition from the Debian SD card on your PC? If so, then you could copy the module over per the T3 instructions. You also need rtl8712u.bin from the firmware-realtek package. I"ve uploaded it here: <URL url="https://www.dr...

Ah, the root account is locked in the image.  the pi user does have sudo which would allow you to run commands as root.  what is that you are trying to do that needs root privileges?

You should be able to run 'sudo' as user 'pi' when using the Debian image to run any command as root.
