Hello,

I am new to linux and have installed Debain on my system. I tried to connect to the internet but my computer does not recognize my usb wifi adapter. What can I do?
Thanks!

I did some google-fu for you, and it looks like you would have to manually download, compile, and install the driver from https://github.com/MeissnerEffect/rtl8822bu

However, this is a big pain if you don't have a Net connection, since you need to install some other packages to do this.

Is there any way you can get a wired connection to install those, or tether a phone to it? If you can, then install module-assistant, then run as root or with sudo:

Code: Select all
m-a prepare


answer yes if it asks if it's OK to install some more packages. Now you should be ready to compile and install the driver source code.

My research shows its an unsupported broadcom chip. Since its a usb dongle, sell it to your worst enemy and buy something with intel or atheros chip.

Did a bit of google and found this solution in other forum : forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=255594&sid=b188a0341ade720902826ef68721cef0

Seems the driver is not pre-installed and need to be manually downloaded.

That is the nano version, it uses a different chipset

Well, we have to wait for the OP to give us the result of "lsusb" so we really know for sure what's in it, since manufacturers have often switched chipsets in the same model without notice, anyway.
