Recently built a PC, everything's working fine, except for the wifi dongle. I was told to get a PCI wifi card, but the slots aren't far enough on motherboard, and connecting a graphics card takes up all the space.
So I bought a ALFA USB WiFi dongle, in the CD that came with it, it's mentioned that it's a rtl8188EUS realtek chip. Since the driver they provided in the disk didn't compile (maybe because it was for linux 4.1, and I'm on 5.x).
So far, I have tried installing these drivers:
https://quickreflex.github.io/rtl8188eus/ - builds fine. Installed too. Loaded with modprobe. Using
dmseg | tail, I'm sure that the correct driver is loaded for the usb dongle. But it doesn't show anywhere in
https://github.com/aircrack-ng/rtl8188eus - same with this. Interface doesn't show in
Is there anything I'm missing or doing wrong? What can I do to get this working.
