    I can't test it in your environment. But I will see how it goes. I have a NHR and will do some tests right now. I will tag you so you are notified of this post. Just FYI, the H has more range.

    Update for PASTO666. I am having the same issue as you are having. dmesg reports that the system registers the new interface driver as an rtl8192cu (which is what the rtl8188ru device uses).

    I also tried the following commands to get the system to recognise the device:
    Select All
    sudo modprobe -l | grep rtl8192cu sudo modprobe -l | grep rtlwifi sudo modprobe rtlwifi /updates/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/rtl8192cu.ko
    The issue still remains. Xiaopan 0.4.1 and Beini 1.2.3 work with the rtl8188ru devices and Xiaopan 0.4.3 has all the required files and the same versions for this device as 0.4.1. So I am stumped.
