RTL8811eu and RTL8188etv setup

Fri Sep 27, 2019 7:01 am

I'm quite new to linux and want to setup some cameras with motioneysOS. I have some wifi dongles that I would like to use but cannot get them to work. They are detailed in the subject above. I have found some help on this form (courtesy og MrENGman) but all the scripts I try end up with errors of one sort or another. Can anyone point me in the right direction with trying to get these to work but with the latest drivers. I've even tried to find out how to install the drivers direct from the disc but I don't know enough on how to do this correctly. Many thanks....
