How to install the RTL8188EU wifi driver

RTL8188EU

This is how I installed the 8188eu driver, that are not included in Raspberry Pi OS.

To quick and easy install Raspberry Ios on your SD card, use the command:

rpi-imager

To download the right driverversion, you'll need to check which kernel version you have. You do that with the command *uname -*

~$uname -r 5.8.0-44-generic

My kernel version is 5.8.0-44-generic, so I navigate to the website for the drivers, and find the driver for my kernel version.


Download the correct driver from this page:
[http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi-drivers/8188eu-drivers/?C=N;O=D](http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi-drivers/8188eu-drivers/?C=N;O=D)

I'm using a small USB hub, so I copy the gz file to a USB memorystick, and insert the stick in the USB hub. From there I copy the gz file to /home/pi and perform the following commands:

tar -zxvf 8188eu-201xyyzz.tar.gz

sudo install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless

sudo insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko

sudo depmod -a

Reboot and connect to your network.

Work in progress.
