I am trying to get a wifi usb dongleworking on a bananapi device.
Device: Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0bda:8172Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8191SU 802.11n WLAN Adapter
Module r8712u is correctly auto loaded
Module Size Used by

mali_drm 2608 0
drm 209226 1 mali_drm
mali 111427 0
ump 52415 1 mali
But from dmesg I am getting followingerror:
[ 24.396715] r8712u: moduleis from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.

I am not able to find rtlwifi formware inany of your repositories … I am not even able to find kernel sources to try torecompile the firmare myself for arm-v7
My Kernel: 3.4.103
Linux version 3.4.103 (bananapi@lemaker)(gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5)
Is there anyway I can get this working?
Upgrading to a newer kernel could solve problem (may be firmware has been added?)
Thanks in advance,
