Mercury WM150US 2.0 problem
« on: February 03, 2013, 06:36:14 am »
I have a problem with a wifi dongle, which i got with cubieboard.

A lsusb displays that it's  id  is 0bda:8179, so on wikidevi i found that a 8188eu is required. but there isn't any driver on official realtek site.

I found a OEM driver from: Successfully added it into linux-sunxi kernel (i can upload it if somebody is interested), but it only detect a 11Mb/s transfer rate and I cannot connect to wifi with wpa2.

Does anybody solved this problem?

Why not see if its in the 3.4 kernel.
and use that instead?

If not -
Chipset for that wifi hardware is  zd1211rw

There is a patch for the normal kernel driver here -

Patch, recompile that as a module, and modprobe it.

Hi! First of all I have to say that I am new to Linux and Android! I have a cubieboard 2 and I've used livesuit in order to flash the NAND with the latest version of Android from here:

So, is it possible for someone to tell me how to execute the lsusb command on Android? This is happening from the debug serial port next to the A20 chip? Because when I am typing this command it says "Not found" or something like that

If I found a USB peripheral that currently is not supported by the kernel (for example a new WiFi USB dongle) and  assuming that I have a Linux driver, how I will add that driver at the linux-sunxi kernel?
