Re: Using a Cheap Wifi Dongle (Realtek) in Raspbian

Open Terminal and run the following to identify the Wireless Chipset lsusb post output in reply, because you will need a specific driver. It lists "Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:0179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp." And you can find info on drivers and installing it here and configuration info here MrEng...

Re: Using a Cheap Wifi Dongle (Realtek) in Raspbian

In Windows 7, my brother had to use the built-in driver search tool to get the drivers. It was very easy. That being said… he and I still hate Windows :lol: But it is definitely easier to use than Raspbian. My experience with Linux is that if it apt-get won't fix it for you, you're hosed, even if yo...

Re: Using a Cheap Wifi Dongle (Realtek) in Raspbian

Even if there's a solution involving apt-get, I can't use apt-get because I have no Internet connection. I DO have a Model B, so if there's something I can just install with apt-get on it, could I transfer the SD card from my Model B to my Model A? Yes, software on both are the same, so cards are i...

Using a Cheap Wifi Dongle (Realtek) in Raspbian

I've got a Rasbperry Pi Model A. It has no ethernet port. I have a Model B as well, just not with me right now. The latest Raspbian supported my $5 Ralink USB wifi dongle out of the box; I just had to open the Wifi Config desktop shortcut and select it. I had to dedicate that to my Raspberry Pi Mode...

Re: WiFi Issues ? Start here !

I see rt2x00usb, not rt2800usb, for my Ralink dongle. It isn't working. Anyone else having this problem?

Ralink RT5370 Refuses to Work

I have a Ralink RT5370 USB dongle that just will not work with my Raspberry Pi model B (running the latest Raspbian). I've wasted hours on random tutorials trying to get this thing working. First off, it's not a hardware problem. I've got the Pi on a 1A Apple iPhone power supply. The Ralink dongle s...
