[SOLVED] RTL8188EUS not detected on laptop

Postby kerryhall » 2020-09-15 21:47

I'm trying to get a RTL8188EUS working on a laptop.

This usb wifi card shows up via "lsusb" on two other systems, but not on this laptop.

All systems are running Debian 10.

Does lsusb work if the drivers aren't installed?

Is the usb-modeswitch package installed?

This was it, thank you! I think the two other machines I tested it on already had this package installed.
