[SOLVED][WIFI][RPI2] VNT6656 wifi dongle


I have installed the latest version of OSMC on a RPi 2 and I am trying to make my wifi dongle to work.
This is a VNT 6656 and I have this error message when it is plugged in (dmesg):

vt6656_stage: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.

[    5.156342] usb 1-1.4: failed to start

Does anyone know if this doomed to fail or if there is a chance to make it work ?

Thank you.



PS: Great job with OSMC :slight_smile:

Looks like you just need the firmware file


Thanks Sam,

Do you know where I can find it? Also, when I find it, where would I need to put the file?

Ok, found it online and put it on /lib/firmware.
It is now working :slight_smile:
Thanks for the fast reply Sam !
