I recently bought a PCduino Acadia and an Edimax wifi adapter and I have tried a lot of different things to try and get the wifi dongle to work

 

I'm using the Acadia image found on http://www.linksprit...mage-for-acadia

Under Ubuntu: First release (using Win32imagewriter, dd in linux or mac), 07-05-2015, I use the Image for bootable SD card, HDMI output

 

Currently I have the Acadia plugged into a wired connection.

I've tried putting the wifi dongle directly into one of the Acadia's USB slots, it didn't work so now I have it plugged into a powered USB Hub.

 

I've also used the Raspberry Pi Wifi Adapter which does work, but it isn't as fast as the Edimax adapter, I'll need something faster for a project I'm working on.

 

I wouldn't mind going out and buying a similar adapter that would work with the Acadia from the start, but I'd prefer to get the Edimax one to work because I already bought it.

 

I've done these:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

According to this post:

http://www.cianmcgov...rking-on-linux/

 

This wifi adapter should use  rtl8192cu, but the system don't have this driver, so it don't work.

 rtl8192cu
