I purchased a Cubox-i2. It came with a RTL8188CU WiFi dongle. However, I am not able to establish a WiFi connection. I entered the correct (! cut’n paste) security parameters in the ‘network’ page. When I do a ‘ifconfig -a’ the dongle is not displayed. The modem does not say that the dongle is connected. The network page says: “No interface present”. What do I do to get the dongle work?
Hi i have faced the same problem…
Please read here…this what i have did.
On Cubox-i, the kernel seems to be version 3.0.35+ #1. So this solution doesn’t work!
The driver that is linked in the other thread is for 8188eu you stated you have a 8188CU
Try this official driver:
realtek.com/downloads/downlo … =true#2772
The same steps should apply
Unfortunally not; I don’t get a “soandso.ko” file after unzipping. Instead I get a bunch of directories:
volumio@volumio:~$ ls rtl8188C_8192C_usb_linux_v4.0.2_9000.20130911
Kconfig clean hal include runwpa
Makefile core ifcfg-wlan0 os_dep wlan0dhcp
(The unzip directory is “rtl8188C_8192C_usb_linux_v4.0.2_9000.20130911”)
(And the command “make” does not seem to exist on the Volumio distro)
There is a install.sh inside the compressed file, this can be used to install the drivers.
For make, you need to install this before you can use it.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential
Warning: if you get the question to upgrade some installed files, ABORT: CTRL+Z and restart the install with --no-upgrade. Upgrading some files will break volumio.
Afther that you should be able to
Then the driver should be installed and you should be able to setup wifi after that. It is possible that you need to manually configure the wireless setting
I am sorry to say that I am not able to try it, because Volumio 1.4 is so buggy on my Cubase-i2, that it malfunctions constantly on all levels. I am barely able to get it responding at all. So I give up. Thank you for taking the effort.
