Wifi usb dongle detected but not working as network adapter


Recommended Posts



I installed armbian (22.05 jammy) on my banana pi m1 (original model). Since it doesn't come with onboard wifi, I decided to attach wifi dongle which uses RTL8188EUS chip. However, although i see it is recognized as "realtek ~~ RTL8188EUS network adapter" when i type 'lsusb' command, it doesn't show up as 'wlan0' when i enter 'ifconfig -a' command. What can I do to make the module work again?

doesnt it show up as wlx[MAC-address of your adapter]?

On older builds, yes. But when i install latest image (jammy), no. There's no such thing starting with wlx when i install latest build.
I just decided to stick with older builds for a bit of time, but any help would be appreciated.
