WiFi modules for ODROID-U3

Post by DmitriK »

Good day,

Could you please tell me if these WiFi modules are compatible with the ODROID-U3 board?
• WiFi Module 0: http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products ... 5431421052
• WiFi Module 4: http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products ... 1630348024

Do they support monitor mode?

U3 supported WiFi module 3 only.
But we didn't try the monitor mode.

Having revived my u3+ I am trying to add a usb wifi. It identifies as...

Code: Select all

[  592.110882] usb 1-3.3: new high-speed USB device number 7 using exynos-ehci
[  592.163681] usb 1-3.3: New USB device found, idVendor=0bda, idProduct=8178, bcdDevice= 2.00
[  592.163710] usb 1-3.3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[  592.163728] usb 1-3.3: Product: 802.11n WLAN Adapter
[  592.163745] usb 1-3.3: Manufacturer: Realtek
[  592.163762] usb 1-3.3: SerialNumber: 00e04c000001
I am running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS / 5.4.20-stb-exy+

The original post was some time ago. Before I embark on an attempt to try to find drivers, is anyone able to confirm if I am likely to be able to use this wifi device please?

Kernel 5.4 is quite recent, so it should likely work. Plug the wifi in a modern linux on a PC and use lsmod to see what module it loads. Then see if this module needs to be compiled in your kernel, or if you get it from an external git repo.
Also check if it complains about missing firmware files in dmesg.
