Installing TPLINK TL-WN8200ND v.2 in Raspberry Pi3

Sun Jul 15, 2018 10:44 pm

I'd like to share this procedure to install this new version of tplink wireless adapter.

Using information from this topics it's possible make a consolidate procedure.

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1003112 ... -rtl8192eu

https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q ... sb-adapter

To install this adpter use this code:

cd ~
sudo apt-get install git raspberrypi-kernel-headers build-essential dkms
git clone https://github.com/luckynzm/tlwn8200nddriver
cd tlwn8200nddriver
sudo nano Makefile
#Replace this lines in Makefile:
CONFIG_PLATFORM_I386_PC = n
CONFIG_PLATFORM_ARM_RPI = y
CONFIG_POWER_SAVING = n
sudo dkms add .
sudo dkms install rtl8192eu/1.0
cd /usr/src/rtl8192eu-1.0/
sudo make clean
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe -a 8192eu

I use this code in Raspberry Pi3 B+ with Kernel 4.4.50-v7+

Hi,

had the same problem here.
I was able to upgrade my kernel and source using rpi-source.
rpi-source and installation instruction is available at https://github.com/notro/rpi-source/wiki

After this solving my kernel problem the instructions above worked for me.

Thanks for the instructions.

Kind regards

Hi,

the never ending story with the TP Link WiFi dongle continuous:
After changing the kernel version, compiling the driver and installing the module following the instructions above, the rpi still does not recognize the device.
dmesg can tell idVendor, idProduct, Manifacture and stuff, but it is neither listed in lsusb (there appears just an empty device entry), in ifconfig nor in iwconfig.

Any ideas?

Kind regards.

You may need to update the source you downloaded with rpi-source.

If anyone is using my install-wifi script to install the 8192eu driver I have updated it and the 8192eu drivers it installs to include the TL-WD8200ND v2. Currently the drivers for kernels 4.14.50-4.14.67 have been updated. If you need a driver for some other earlier kernel version let me know and I'll updated the necessary drivers.

Thank you very much. Your script worked like charm.
For all people reading this: don't forget to call raspi-config, go to Network Options and enable your wifi after using this awesome script.

Kind regards
