I just got my Raspberry 2b running with an old wifi adapter, but the data rates are poor. I tried my new RTL8811CU dongle but no luck. I see a driver is out there but it takes some configuring and I would prefer PnP.
I installed OSMC_TGT_rbp2_20230831 which is the latest, I think. When will my new adapter be supported out of the box? I appreciate that this is a distro-dependent issue and there is no rush as I can manage with the system as it is.
Is there a module available in the current used Kernel? If yes then there is a chance to get it added for OSMC. If not then you would need to compile it yourself (search RTL8811CU compile module Debian)
Thanks, Sam. I will let my Pi 2b settle in for a while as it works and then upgrade to a Vero V when I get a chance.
BTW, isn’t this more of a general issue of what Debian supports ootb? I happen to have a new RTL8811CU-based USB wifi adapter and I could, in theory, get it to work, but I don’t want to mess around too much.
