I’m fairly new to OSMC. I was using Raspbmc previously and purchased this wifi adapter so that I could use yatse with wifi rather than plugging an ethernet into my pi each time (I use the ethernet for other things too).
I have a raspberry pi b+ model and believe that I have the correct power adapter (purchased from pihut).
However when going into network settings I can only see options for Wired and MySQL but not wireless. I’ve switched on max usb option and installed the latest updates to OSMC.
How do I firstly get the “Wireless” option to appear and then successfully set this up!? I’ve read that this device is compatible maybe I’m doing something wrong.
Did some digging around on this forum. Got this info from dmesg hopefully it will help

It would be great to get this working! Hope someone can help me please !
Edit2: I think the driver for this is rtl8192EU. The device itself is the EU v2 of the tp link.
Seems like no-one wants to help? patiently waiting now. Not much else I can provide at this stage.
If to have Ethernet available at the pi location, why would you ever want to use WiFi? WiFi is always the weakest link. I’d return the WiFi adaptor and buy a cheap unmanaged Ethernet switch for that location. Them you don’t have to swap plugging the cable in all the time.
Alternatively, try another power supply. OSMC is more demanding than Raspbmc ever was.

It workssssss omg!! You’re a genius mate! Thought I’d have to wait 2 months didn’t think you’d be this quick! Did a couple of reboots to see if it was still alive. All seems good so far, hopefully it will keep working. Thank you
