OSMC 5G wifi dongle drivers

Hi,We bought some of these OSMC high speed dongles from the store but now have no need of them as we are using wired connections. I would like to make use of one for my laptop running ubuntu 16.04. Any idea where I can find suitable drivers?
Keep up the great work

Did you simply try the dongle yet?

Osmc has drivers and fingds it. Liinux 4.10 does not .
I ran lspci
lspci | less
lspci | grep -i intel
lspci | grep -i wireless

and got these- I do not think the wifi device is there

00:1d.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #1 (rev 03)
00:1d.1 USB controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #2 (rev 03)
00:1d.2 USB controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #3 (rev 03)
00:1d.7 USB controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller #1 (rev 03)

It’s a USB device. Did you try lsusb?

And how about dmesg? Do you see anything about a WLAN Adapter?

As @dillthedog says, it’s a USB device, so it won’t show up under lspci.

There’s a driver here, which will work up until 4.9. I haven’t tested Linux 4.10 yet


I have a machine with Ubuntu 16.04 and its kernel is currently 4.4.0-78, though I understand that there’s the option to upgrade to 4.8, which offers no major advantages in my case. But 4.10 in 16.04 LTS? That kernel is in 17.04, AFAICT.

He is probably using the backports repository.

I looked around and you can apparently download it from Index of /~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.10 as a .deb file

Can you help with the make syntax Also does the wifi have to be configured by a script?
I am getting this after entering ‘make MODE=STA TARGET=LINUX’
make[1]: Entering directory ‘/home/petero’
make[1]: *** No rule to make target ‘modules’. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory ‘/home/petero’
Makefile:389: recipe for target ‘LINUX’ failed
make: *** [LINUX] Error 2

Check you have headers and check path.
Currently Makefile is for OSMC build system, so maybe revert

Just asking out of curiosity - are there any Windows drivers for this dongle?

Yes, plug and play on Win10

OK, I should have been more specific (mea culpa): How about Win7? Any chances?

Found a suitable Win7 drivers package for this little device here.
Just download & extract .zip package, then run the executable that comes with it and wait. Soon enough after plugging in, you should see Little Dongle happily blinking its shiny blue LED.

Sharing in case anyone else needs it to run in their Windows 7 systems.
