rtl8812au wifi dongle on RPi 3

  • The only USB devices attached appear to be an Apple keyboard and a mouse. I can't see any evidence of a USB wireless device.

  • Thanks,

    i'll dig a little deeper and see what I can find. Being able to ssh in and poke around is helping too. This is a very cool system, keep up the good work.

  • Hey all,


    I have a Tenda U12 dongle, rtl8812au chip


    Code
    1. [ 1540.658293] usb 1-1.1: new high-speed USB device number 3 using xhci_hcd
    2. [ 1540.749121] usb 1-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=2604, idProduct=0012, bcdDevice= 0.00
    3. [ 1540.749140] usb 1-1.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    4. [ 1540.749157] usb 1-1.1: Product: 802.11n NIC
    5. [ 1540.749172] usb 1-1.1: Manufacturer: Realtek
    6. [ 1540.749187] usb 1-1.1: SerialNumber: 123456


    I thought 8812au should work out of the box, but unfortunately it does not for me.


    Tried


    Code
    1. LibreELEC:/sys/bus/usb # modprobe 8812au
    2. LibreELEC:/sys/bus/usb/drivers/8812au # echo 2604 0012 > new_id


    and still nothing, any ideas how to make it work with RPi4 running 9.2.0? Thanks
