Please post in this topic if your adapter is not supported and you would like to see it supported in a future update of OSMC.
We will try to support it, but no guarantees can be made in regards to it being supported.
For us to support it would mean that there is a working driver and firmware for the 3.18.x+ version (or whatever version is the current at a later time) of the Linux kernel.
So you have a WIFI adapter that is not supported? Do you want us to try and support it? If so, please read on.
Please look in all the already created posts in this topic if your adapter has already been requested.
If the adapter you have is already on the request list, please do not make another post. Just press the ‘like’-button under the post with the adapter you would like supported which is already in this topic.
When you request support for a new WIFI device this information is required:
- Product name: TredNet TEW-649UB
- Chipset: RTL8191SU
- Product ID: 0x8172
- Vendor ID: 0x0bda
To get this information listed easily please install ‘usbutils’:
sudo apt-get install usbutils
You will get a long list with information about USB stuff in you system.
Somewhere on that list you will find with the WIFI network adapter listed as below, with the idVendor (Vendor ID) and idProduct (Product ID), which also mostly tells you the chip used, in this case RTL8191SU:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8172 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8191SU 802.11n WLAN Adapter Device Descriptor: bLength 18 bDescriptorType 1 bcdUSB 2.00 bDeviceClass 0 (Defined at Interface level) bDeviceSubClass 0 bDeviceProtocol 0 bMaxPacketSize0 64 idVendor 0x0bda Realtek Semiconductor Corp. idProduct 0x8172 RTL8191SU 802.11n WLAN Adapter
Good luck in your quest to find the needed information, and we will look forward to supporting as many adapters as we can over time.
