We need a sample adapter to develop/port a device driver.

I purchased a TP-Link, TL-WN725N V3 and it is not supported, on the box mention linux support since kernel 2.6.18
Than purchased a RTL8188 from China which was also not supported

Both were tested on my ubuntu 18.04 laptop and runs perfectly fine, please address these compatibility issues

PS: Im using version 19.07.2019

There are too many 8188 variant from Realtek. RTL8188CUS, CU, EU, EUS, ETV, RU, GU, SU and others.
If your RTL8188CUS has VID:PID "0BDA:8176", it should work out of the box.
Please check the VID:PID first.

RTL8188EUS seems not to be compatible with RTL8188CUS drivers :(
