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.

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.

Thank you MrEngman for helping me.
These are the drivers for the ID 8188.
My wireless USB adapter has the ID 8179. Please see the below image and provide me the drivers.
Once again thank you very much. I was stuck with this issue for the past two days.

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.

Postings several posts on the same subject is not Netiquitte.

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:
