Re: Edimax EW7811UAC (RTL8812) - 802.11ac AP mode

Clean Raspbian Jessie Install (full not lite). Installed Mr EngMan's RTL8812AU driver for 4.1.13-v7+ (Pi 2B+) Build 826. Rebooted the unit. sudo apt-get install wpasupplicant Now I think the wpasupplicant was already installed as I had connected my Pi to a generic Wi-Fi 2.4ghz network in order to be...

Re: Edimax EW7811UAC (RTL8812) - 802.11ac AP mode

I have the specific 5ghz SSID Broadcasting under a different name to my 2.4ghz on the same router so I can confirm it is connected like that. As to expected bandwidth I can't say, due to the USB2.0 hub also sharing the transfer rate of my 2x4TB drives I have connected (which use their own powered hu...

Re: Edimax EW7811UAC (RTL8812) - 802.11ac AP mode

Hi MrEngman,

Hope you have a nice trip!
Good news, Unsure how but, I managed to get it working via command line :)
Also thank you for the driver file as this literally saved my ass.
It's now connected via the 5ghz frequency Wi-Fi I'm broadcasting and transferring accordingly :)

Re: Edimax EW7811UAC (RTL8812) - 802.11ac AP mode

Hi MrEngman, So there doesn't appear to be any power issues looking at the Pi's LED's. The WiFi dongle flashes for a while then stops, dmesg shows the following; [ 63.484192] usb 1-1.4: Product: 802.11n NIC [ 63.484208] usb 1-1.4: Manufacturer: Realtek [ 63.484223] usb 1-1.4: SerialNumber: 123456 [ ...

Re: Edimax EW7811UAC (RTL8812) - 802.11ac AP mode

Re: Unable to compile Wi-Fi Driver

Hi MrEngman,

I actually found a post where you wrote the same thing on a different thread.
I've tried this and my Wi-Fi dongle doesn't appear to power up still.
Wondering if you had any suggestions?
Running 4.1.13-v7+ build 826 (as per your code comment).

Re: Unable to compile Wi-Fi Driver

Hi All, New update, I've got further with my endeavours but still stuck (all over a Wi-Fi dongle ugh). The driver given by TP-LINK for my WiFi dongle says - required Linux (kernel 2.6.18 ~ 3.19.3) However from what I can tell (and I could be wrong) with uname -r (I think that's the right command) I'...

Re: Unable to compile Wi-Fi Driver

Thankyou, I'm reading through this now, However my issue is, HOW do I set up compiling on my RasPi, it turns out the build/make modules aren't symbolicly linked and I have no idea how to do so. Edit: Reading the last page of your link has given me some insight on this, will read that and see what I ...

Unable to compile Wi-Fi Driver

Hi all, Second thread here; I am trying to "make" a Wi-Fi dongle driver so as to use it with the Pi rather than the slow 10/100 connection (this is a 5ghz wireless AC connection I'm going to use via the 480mb USB2 port). I downloaded the linux stable driver from the manufacturers website however it ...

Re: Ethernet/USB bottleneck

Might give the Wi-Fi thing a try.
No other option due to megabit router, and I'm not smart enough to any other WiFi hacks to the unit.

Re: Ethernet/USB bottleneck

Hi Guys,

As per my previous post,
Was wondering if anyone had tried a 5ghz 801.11ac Wi-Fi dongle, and seen if this provides more performance over USB than a LAN cable using a 100mbit connection?

Re: Ethernet/USB bottleneck

Hi All,

Just realised, the small router I purchased only has a megabit connection (stupid me).
I might try using the USB over a Wi-Fi interface like a 802.11ac over 5ghz band which my router supports.
Opinions people, would this theoretically work as it would then only be limited by the usb2.0 bus?

Re: Ethernet/USB bottleneck

Sorry for my cluelessness here, So as some comments are suggesting and I just want to clear up. If I get a USB3 to Gigabit ethernet adapter, plug this into the RPi's USB port and the Rj45 ethernet cable going to the router, into this adapter, this will theoretically increase the speed slightly? The ...

Ethernet/USB bottleneck

Hi Guys, I purchased myself a Raspberry Pi (the latest model) media centre kit. I set this up as a nice small NAS (much cheaper than one too) but didn't realise (my bad) that the ethernet interface shares with the USB 2.0 interface. Causing a theoretical max transfer rate of 11mbytes per second (at ...
