Recently many people has the question about USB WiFi adapter. I will explain the type of the USB adapter, and tell all which adapter could be used.|
The chip of the most USB WiFi dongle is Realtek based. There are mainly two serial driver: 8188 and 8192.
8188cus, 8188cu, 8192 chip use the 8192 driver.
8188eus, 8188eu, 8188tv chip use the 8188eu driver.
So you should first check which chip your USB WiFi adapter use. You can useto roughly identify it.
For now three images we have released, the RP and CB image could use the 8192 driver serial chip, the Android image could use the 8188eu driver serial chip.
