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.
http://www.wikidevi.com/wiki/TP-LINK_TL-WN725N_v2 but there isn't any driver on official realtek site.

I found a OEM driver from: https://github.com/Red54/linux-shumeipai2/tree/sunxi-3.0/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8188eu. 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: http://cubiebook.org/index.php?title=Cubieboard2/Android_Prebuilt

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?
