ok lol umm im not sure how to submit a log tho cuz my raspberry pi zero can’t connect to the internet cuz of this bug thing or whatever it is

btw forgot to say thanks so much for helping me:sweat_smile ik I’m rlly bad at this:sweat_smile:sweat_smile:

ok i think i figured it out… i may or may not have submitted it in the OSMC paste bin (all i know is i hit save cuz there wasn’t any submit button) if I’m even supposed to do that

Once you hit save, you must provide us with the URL so we know where to go

Your USB wifi adaptor is detected, but there is no driver in OSMC to support this adaptor as no driver is loading. What is the exact make and model of the adaptor ?

Hi sorry I took so long to respond as I was away on vacation. Anyways I believe I have a TP link Ac 450 wireless nano usb adapter model no. Archer T1U

I have the same wifi dongle.There are official linux drivers from TP-link and I saw on another thread that you planning to add support in the kernel for it. Any idea when will that happen?

Hi there, I recently purchased a WIFI dongle and after following some instructions to get it going, it appears that it may not yet be supported.

Product details:
TP-LINK Archer T1U

This is the info from dmesg:
: New USB device found, idVendor=2357, idProduct=0105
[ 455.704419] usb 1-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[ 455.704437] usb 1-1.4: Product: WiFi
[ 455.704453] usb 1-1.4: Manufacturer: MediaTek
[ 455.704468] usb 1-1.4: SerialNumber: 1.0

If I’ve missed any details, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!

I moved your post here as this thread is about the same device.
As far as I can see there is no kernel driver available for this device. If you can find a proper kernel driver for this device it could be added to OSMC.

Hi

Unfortunately I can’t add support for this device to OSMC as there’s no Linux driver released by the vendor. If you’d like a good, capable wireless dongle, then you should see our Store. We offer long term support for products sold in our Store.

Cheers
