Hello. I'm a newbie, so bear with me here. I managed to install Armbian on a TV box with the Amlogic s905w CPU. Everything seems to be working fine except for the wi-fi, which is expected based on what I've read on the forum. I had a USB wi-fi adapter with me so I tried to use that as an alternative but it doesn't seem to work no matter what I do. My question is very straightforward actually, and probably a dumb one but it doesn't hurt to ask. When we say wi-fi doesn't work on Amlogic CPUs, we're talking about Armbian recognizing their built-in wifi card, right? If I use something external to that it should be able to work regardless of the processor? Or are we talking about two things that can't be separated?
Hello there! Before I start I'm gonna give a bit of information about my TV Box MXQ Pro 4K (S905W) 1GB RAM 8GB STORAGE Armbian 20.02 Kernel 5.5 (or that's what I remember) Okey, so I wanna install a Wi-Fi driver on Armbian I think my Wi-Fi chip is RTL8189ES (I'm gonna check tomorrow to be sure) I've looking on the forum and Google and so far I know that i need Linux headers, i installed them from armbian-config but i don't know if they are installed correctly, because I can't find them anywhere Then I need the RTL8189ES driver and run a Makefile Is this right? If so, what are the correct steps (like what exactly i need to do) and where I can find the Wi-Fi driver Any help is appreciated! Thanks
