I know the source is available, I wrote the driver isn't.

 

Since we build images for boxes with kernel versions from 2.6 to 5.1. source needs to be compatible with all those kernel versions, which it hardly ever is.

 

Buy a stick with a chipset supported by the linux kernel of the box you are going to use it for, problem solved.

Or even better, a wireless bridge.

I will not work as WanWizard explained, because your kernel version does not support it. Follow his advice or even beter Erik's

It might work, I haven't checked the code to see which WLAN kernel API's are supported.

 

To check, make a bitbake recipe for it, install OE and the toolchain for the cross-compiler, and see if it compiles.

It builds for my Duo 4K, we'll have to see if it builds for all other boxes we support.

What part of "it doesn't exist" did you miss? And what didn't you get of my last post?

The driver and its firmware files will be in the feeds in the next 7.1-release update.

You keep on assuming that everything is plug and play. Your receiver is not a PC.

 

You have to be more patient, the driver has build, but the firmware package hasn't.

I've done a rebuild of the Solo2 and Zero 4K images.

 

Go to menu - Plugins - Software Management - Advanced Options - Package Management, and install the firmware-rtl8723bu and kernel-module-8723bu packages, and then restart the box.

 

If your stick has a chipset that is indeed supported by this driver, it should now be recognised.

Driver works good ;)

 

It shows now two WLAN devices. To disable the accesspoint device you need to disable follow
