Wifi on Jetson Xavier

How to enable wifi on Jetson Xavier?
I have connected USB realtek wifi module, and can see it.

$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter

But couldn’t get it to work. Is there no driver support on Xavier’s kernel?
Then how can I get it? M2 slot for SSD, I have to connect USB wifi module.
Thanks.

I can’t answer the specifics for your hardware, but adding a kernel module for a driver is usually fairly simple once you’ve set up for building modules. You won’t find any embedded system which installs every driver…mostly embedded systems only start with what is actually used. Not being currently installed is not the same as not being supported.

It is kind of long, but if interested in why this is, see:

Can you run “dmesg --follow” and see what shows up as you insert the USB connector?

Can someone who knows the particular WiFi hardware comment on what is needed?

It show the results below.

Is seems to be correctly seen by USB.
Does it have the driver for it (not seen any trace of it in dmesg) and is wifi allowed ? What gives:

lsmod
rfkill list

Hi,

Is this issue resolved?

Does this mean, there is no Wifi USB module that works out of the box with Xavier? I know with Raspberry Pi, some of the Wifi dongles just work when plugged in following simple steps like this one linked:

Is this not the same process for the Jetson?

Yes, there is no wifi module on out of box Xavier.

Just to clarify, are the steps to get an external Wifi USB module working out of the box the same as what I would do with a Raspberry Pi since they both use ubuntu (steps here: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruits-raspberry-pi-lesson-3-network-setup/buying-a-usb-wifi-adapter)?

Maybe some driver installation is needed. I am not sure.
