Thanks for this, it got me up and running on the cut down Kodi version of Raspbian produced by Michael Gorven. I have it running as 3.18.7+ #755 but it is not a full Raspbian release.aimc wrote:(dongle model: TL-wn723n ; latest rpi firmware according to command "sudo rpi-update")
I have tested the one-liner provided by MrEngman: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 71#p675971
It worked for my latest RPI B+ model, but didn't for my RPI B (old model)
So i tested this solution by fgimenez on my RPI B model and worked:

For starters / noobs:
This is what i did for making fgimenez solution work:
1- with Filezilla or any other ftp transfer program, i added my rpi , using sftp protocol instead of ftp
2- opening the connection with Filezilla, i pasted the folders from 8188eu-v4.1.8_9499-kernel_3.18.7.tar to my RPI home folder (they are called "etc" and "lib" )
3- Then log to your RPI, open a terminal, and write:
cp -rp ~/etc/* /etc/
cp -rp ~/lib/* /lib/
3- On the raspberry pi, after pasting the folders with above lines, write this:
sudo insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
sudo depmod -a
4- done. USB WIFI dongle should work now.
I believe Michael still uses the old persistent rules so the dongle came up as wlan3. Added wlan3 to /etc/network/interfaces and changed the whitelisting to remove eth*, ra* and wlan* but it still runs as wlan3.
Mr Engman is there something else I need to do to remove the wlan3?
