Unread postby violeta7 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 3:45 pm

Could I use Realtek 8188 Wifi dongle for Odroid-C2, and Ubuntu?
I just wanna know my own old Wifi dongle works for Odroid-C2 or not, before I order it.

There are several different RTL8188 chipsets in the market.
RTL8188CUS, CU, EU, EUS, ETV, RU, GU, SU and others.

If your dongle has RTL8188CUS chipset as our official WiFi module 3, it must work out of the box.

If not CUS, like CU, EU, EUS, ETV, RU, GU, SU, do I have to install drivers? or is it impossible to use?

If Linux Kernel support the other chipsets, you can build your own driver for Ubuntu easily.
If you use Android, it will be more complicated.

Connect your dongle to a Linux PC and show us "lsusb" output.
Our official RTL8188CUS has "0BDA:8176" of VID:PID.
