USB Wifi device chipset RTL8188EU

I’m trying to use a WiFi adapter that plugs in USB port that is based on the RTL8188EU chipset. I’ve been able to compile the Linux kernel with the wifi driver provided but there is only support for RTL8192 chipset.
The USB device is recognized successfully but the wifi driver is not loaded. I assume it is because the wifi driver does not support the RTL8188EU chipset.
I tried to compile the backports using the same environment as I used to compile the Linux kernel but there are errors reported in the backports folder. It can not find /lib/

Will compiling the backports will solve the wifi driver issue? If so, any ideas why it fails to compile?

Any other avenues I should investigate?

Thansk for the support

Hey @maxim23,

The error from /lib/ not being found is from the packages for this file not being on the host. It looks like it can be found here: libc6-dev-armhf-cross

I’m not sure if backporting will solve your wifi drives. I think you’ll have to try and see.

it looks like some RTL8188EU support was added to BSP 2.8 from this post:

Is updating the BSP an option? Would you be able to go to the lastest BSP 6?

Here is some guidance from our older archived website on backports:
