When I type in lsusb, the device appears as ID 2357:0108

That's right, it's blank at the end. I've updated the usb ids yet its always blank. I have no idea what to install to make this thing work. I'm dual booting on mac osx

I suggest that, with a temporary working internet connection by ethernet, tethered or whatever means possible, open a terminal and do:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/jeremyb31/rtl8192eu-linux-driver
cd rtl8192eu-linux-driver
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 8192eu

You wireless should now be working.

When Update Manager installs a later kernel version, also known as linux-image, after the required reboot, then recompile:

cd rtl8192eu-linux-driver
make clean
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 8192eu

Please retain the file and these instructions for that time.
