LB Link BL-WN151 or RT5370 wifi dongle not working.

Unread postby topaz » Sat Sep 15, 2018 9:14 pm

Hi

I have just got my C2 (great little box) and inserted a a LB Link BL-WN151 USB wifi dongle but its not working.

I can turn the wifi on in settings but nothing happens.

If I could share the internet from may mac pro over ethernet that would be ok but I cannot get that working either.

any help would be great ;-)

If you run Android, the wifi chipset compatibility is quite limited than Ubuntu/Linux.
We have supported only below chipsets for Android. Which chipset is embedded in your dongle?
Wifi module 5: Realtek RTL8812AU(0BDA:8812)
Wifi module 4: Ralink RT5572 (148F:5572)
Wifi module 3: Realtek RTL8188CUS (0BDA:8176)
Wifi module 1/0: Ralink RT5370 (148F:5370)

Hi, so I ordered an RT5370 but I still cannot connect to the net.

I did see the dongle once but now it wont even appear.

I have tried all usb ports but still nothing.

any ideas ?
