Hi, I was trying to use a USB Wifi adapter with BPI-W2 but it didn’t work. The image I tested is the Ubuntu 18.04 one. The adapter seems to be detected by Linux because it shows up in
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter
but no driver is loaded for it and it is not recognized by Linux as a network interface:
[email protected]:~$ ip link 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1 link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc fq_codel state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/ether 00:10:20:30:40:50 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
Do I need to install any driver for this adapter? Is there any Wifi adapter known to work with BPI-W2?
