Hey guys, I recently bought TPLink's TL-WN725N Wifi dongle and when typing lsusb, the device showed as Realtek something like KimDEa's screenshot. I installed the firmware-realtek package already but wlan0 still did not show. I also try to download and compile driver based on installation instruction found at https://www.tp-link.com/us/download/TL-W...tml#Driver but whenever I run the make command, some errors popped up. Do you have any idea what I should do to resolve the problem? Thanks!

I have the TPlink TL-WN725N as well and haven’t had any luck either.

we are working on updating RetrOrangePi to mainline kernel, so better hardware compatibility is expected.

I have a problem trying to use mi wifi usb dongle. It's a raspberry oficial wifi model wlu6331 who has a Broadcom BCM43143 in theory. I'm using supreme v1.3 for the retrostone

When I use "lsusb" I get the following message:

pi@RetrOrangePi:~$ lsusb

Bus 008 Device 002: ID 0a5c:2101 Broadcom Corp. BCM2045 Bluetooth

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

So I decided that it must be a drivers problem so I installed the drivers,  I realized that they must be firmware-brcem80211 (20161130-5) non free https://packages.debian.org/stretch/firmware-brcm80211. Messages are
 in Spanish but there wasn't no problem with the installation:


pi@RetrOrangePi:~$ sudo apt install firmware-brcm80211

But when i do "sudo ifconfig" I get this:


pi@RetrOrangePi:~$ sudo ifconfig

What do I need to do to make the wifi work?

Thank you in advance.

Never tested them myself
Maybe you need to load module manually with “sudo modprobe module_name” but im not sure which one
Check dmesg output, maybe There is a bug or error
