Hi,

Sorry you found things confusing.

Unfortunately the drivers I have compiled are for the RPI Raspbian OS images and the output you show for uname indicates you are not using a basic Raspbian image but possibly BerryBoot which the drivers I have compiled will not work with.

The driver used by the wifi module, USB id 148F:761A, you are trying to use is the Ralink mt7610u driver.

I would suggest you access the wiki or forum for BerryBoot, if that is the kernel you are using, and ask about installing the mt7610u driver there.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

MrEngman
Thanks MrEngman for getting back to me s quickly.

I am running the full version of Raspbian OS so I do not see how BerryBoot is causing an issue. It is from my understanding that BerryBoot simply allows me to dual boot my system. For example I have Raspbian installed along with Kodi and RetroPie. I want the ablitity to be able to boot to the the different OS for the different projects that I am attempting to do.

Is there a different application that you would recommend that I run instead of BerryBoot that would allow me to dual boot and allow me to install the wifi dongle?

BerryBoot has its own Kernel which is used by all installed Operating Systems, therefore it is not the same as the current Raspbian Stretch....

....BerryBoot is the only multi-boot available, though NooBS/ PiNN which is an installer / chooser allows selecting various Operating Systems on start up:

It sounds as if I should have attempted to preform the install under BerryBoot and not within the Raspbian OS. Is this correct?

BerryBoot is a multi-boot manager it is not an Operating System par-se...

As I already stated the Kernel in BerryBoot is not the same as the Kernel in Raspbian.

Thanks for the clarification I will look into running multiple OS with Noobs.

Hi Dimension02000,

Looks like @Fruitoftheloom has explained the issue using BerryBoot.

Using NOOBS or PINN will allow you to install multiple OS's and choose which one to run at boot. They install the basic Raspbian OS's and others you may want to install but may need an internet connection, possibly wired, to install more than just Raspbian. It has been years since I tried NOOBS and I've never tried PINN so exactly what you need to do to install more than one OS I am unsure.

They install the RPI Raspbian images so you will then be able to install the wifi drivers I compile for Raspbian.

The ID is 0bda:8179 and according to the first post in this 56 page post this is the correct driver for Raspbian Stretch.

8188EUS is the Realtek Chipset model number.

I have ran into an interesting issue with my Archer T2UH in which after running the install script the device appears to load correctly. When I look at the available networks I can see them but the indicator bars next to them are grayed out. I was able to successfully connect the wireless network and get an IP address but I was unable to ping/access anything on the network, including being unable to ping the router.

I am using a Pi 3 B+ and using the built in wifi I am able to see the connection signal bars correctly and I am able to successfully use the network as well. I am running Raspbian. Has anyone run into this type of problem before?

Having not received and updates on my issue I decided to start over from scratch.

Formatted my SDcard and installed the latest version of NOOBS on it. Installed the full version of Raspbian then ran sudo apt-get upgrade. Seeing that there were not any kernel files wanting to install I completed the update. Ran the recommended install script from this forum posting but unfortunately my Pi3 was still not seeing my Archer T2UH dongle. Listing out the USB devices I was able to see the device connected to my powered USB adapter. Did some research and downloaded the specific driver that matched my Kernal version and ran that installer. This time the device showed up but I was back to being able to see the wifi names but none of them showed any signal strength. Any connection to any of the wifi's failed to connect. The onboard wifi is working properly.

While all this is taking place a new issue pop-up after installing the drivers in which the system would hang on service-reboot. Did some research and saw that it was recommended that I run sudo rpi-update. Ran this command and it updated to the latest version of the Kernel and resolved my reboot it. Also I noticed that the wifi started working and I was able to connect to my wireless network. I was jumping for joy for I had at this point sent about 3 or 4 hours working on this issue.

Since everything appeared to be working now I began to work on my project (my project is on a separate network thus the need for wifi) and I needed to connect to the Internet so I plug up my Ethernet cable and get what I need. Unplug the Ethernet cable and all of the networks are back to showing no signal strength. Rebooting did not help to bring them back.

I tried a few different things but nothing resolved my issue. Frustrated I started all over again installing from fresh again. This time right out of the gate I update the Kernel then run the wifi install script but evidentially the script was not built on the latest Kernel for it was unable to find a driver. Looking at the download site manually I did see that a driver was available for the latest version of the Kernel so I installed it and then rebooted. After the reboot the onboard wifi is working properly but the external dongle is stuck at scanning. Allowed it to run for about 10 minutes but it never found any wifi signals.

I do not understand why this device is so hard to setup. I am about to throw this thing out the window. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Hi Dimension02000,

Sorry for not responding to your earlier posts but I've not been too well recently.

There have been serious problems with the mt7610 driver I've been compiling with the Raspbian kernel 4.19.xx and I've not been able to sort them out. Basically occasionally causing the kernel to panic when booting and then hanging when trying to reboot, and I found today the source I've been using from github appears to have been deleted so is not being updated.

However, the latest 4.19 kernels include the mt7610 driver but the firmware is not included. I tried several different firmware files I found on the internet. I got the driver to apparently load OK with one version of firmware but I have not been able to get it to work.

Sorry for the issues you've had but unfortunately I am unable to fix them.

Very helpful. Which driver? What OS, what Pi? What do commands uname -a and lsusb show with your wifi connected.

MrEngman, sorry to hear about your issues and hope that you are coming back from them.

Thank you for the response and looking into this issue. I was afraid that I would not be able to use this particular dongle from all my research and tinkering. Thank you again for looking into the issue and hopefully one day someone will have an answer.

Hi Scorpion1122,

For some reason or other the data needed to compile drivers for 4.19.50+ #896 is not available from the Raspberry Pi github so I've not been able to compile the wifi drivers specifically for that build number #896.

Run these commands

Code: Select all

wget http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi-drivers/8188eu-drivers/8188eu-4.19.50-1234.tar.gz
tar xzf 8188eu-4.19.50-1234.tar.gz
./install.sh
This will install a working version of the 8188eu driver. The build number is different but I've tried it on a Pi B+ with kernel 4.19.50+ #896 and the wifi started running immediately after a reboot and it is working OK.

There is a built in driver for the 8188eu wifi, r8188eu, but for some reason or other it doesn't seem to work. I tried to get the built in driver working but cannot, although it works on earlier versions of the kernel.

Installing my driver blacklists the built in r8188eu driver using file /etc/modprobe.d/8188eu.conf which includes the line blacklist r8188eu to avoid the built in driver loading and causing any conflict between the different versions of the driver.

i have mac book and connect to zero pi via ssh over usb cable i install this driver 8188eu-4.19.57-v7l-1244.tar.gz from http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi ... u-drivers/
also i make in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf string for my unsecured network

network={
ssid="mywifiname"
key_mgmt=NONE
}

as you can see dear friends i dont have some hubs and can't connect together wifi adapter and usb cable to check if everything is ok via ssh or something like thet i just install drivers connect my wifi and check my router for new device but its not hepend because i need help what i can do :) :roll:

Thank you very much, MrEngman.

I followed your instructions, downloaded the following

http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi ... 244.tar.gz

extracted the contents, ran the script, and my TL-WN725N is now working perfectly.
