tp-link wn823n not working

Wed Aug 02, 2017 2:11 am

hello i recently purchase the tp-link wn823n because it said that it was perfect for raspberry pi. however when i try to connect it to my raspberry pi it doesn't recognize it as a wifi adapter. doing ifconfig only finds wlan0 not wlan1 but if i do lsusb it finds it as Bus 001 Device 004: ID 2357:0109 with no name i have searched many forums and "solutions" however none of them have worked for me. please help i am at a loss for what to do at this point.

That version of the wn823n uses the 8192eu driver which needs installing.

I compile that driver and it is available for download. I have a script that will automatically select the right version of the driver if you are using Raspbian OS.

You can download and install the script using commands

Code: Select all

sudo wget http://fars-robotics.net/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
Command sudo install-wifi -h will show the info on how to use the script. Command sudo install-wifi should install the driver for you.
