NanoPi R4S 802.11 AX?

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Has anyone found a USB 802.11 ax dongle that works with a NanoPi R4S running FriendlyWRT??

If so, then what, if any, machinations did you have to perform to make it work?

Thanks in advance.

Only AX cards I have seen were pcie or m2 cards. no joy for you...

I am in similar boat since the manufacturers seldom advertise the VendorId and ProdId values. The only usb3/AC adapter I have is using the RTL8822BU (TP-Link Archer T3U Plus) . lsusb report "2357:0138" but does not create wireless interface.

My looking around seems to indicate the need to compile an out-of-tree driver for this chipset myself.
I was looking at
https://github.com/friendlyarm/rtl8822bu and https://github.com/morrownr/88x2bu
for guidance.

good luck on your search

Use Armbian and it will work out of the box.
