How to install TL-LINK TL-WN725N with image PiAware 3



My dongle wifi TL-LINK TL-WN725N unrecognized with Raspberry pi2 .
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter



Is it recognized by a vanilla Raspbian install? If so it’s probably a firmware issue; I’ll take a look. If it’s not recognized by vanilla Raspbian then it’s not supported by the Piaware 3 sdcard image.



With the image piaware-jessie-full-sd-card-2.1-5.img that’s OK !
I try with vanilla Raspbian full .(git clone rpi-kernel-vanilla) ?
It’s possible create image PiAware 3 with Jessie Raspian ?

Best regard


Ok, then it is probably a missing firmware package. You can try installing the Realtek firmware (I believe that dongle is a realtek - you pasted the wrong bit of lsusb, FWIW, what you pasted is the wired ethernet). Try:

sudo apt-get install firmware-realtek

The PiAware 3 image is built with Raspbian Jessie but it is built “up” by adding specific packages to a minimal install rather than trying to remove packages from a maximal install, and some packages like this firmware package got missed (I’ll add them for the next release)


It’s good with the command :slight_smile:

 sudo apt-get install firmware-realtek

Wifi is UP
