I used the following:
To my happiness, I happened to have the exact USB wifi plug here: Edimax EW-7811Un 150Mbps Wireless 802.11n USB nano adapter
It has worked flawlessly for me on the raspberry pi, and I figured it would work with Jetson too.
The wiki is so nice that it says “rtl8192cu chipset based adapter” and says steps to follow!
I did exactly what it said:
- Download & unzip Media:rtl8192cufw.bin.zip,
- Then copy this firmware driver into the “/lib/firmware/rtlwifi” folder on the device using root permissions.
The part that confused me was this:
“Finally, set the Wifi settings either through your Desktop Environment’s NetworkManager GUI or from command-line by editing “/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf” with root permissions, as shown here.”
When I go into System Settings and Wifi, it says there is no adapter (even though it is plugged into a USB hub that also has a keyboard and mouse plugged in which both light up and work)
Just in case, I followed the website linked and did this:
sudo apt-get install linux-firmware
I checked that the file (.bin file that was unzipped from what I had downloaded) was under the /lib/firmware/rtlwifi directory, which it was.
Then I executed command “nmcli dev”, and it showed nothing about wlan…
I then used this command:
nmcli dev wifi connect <YOUR_SSID_HERE> password <YOUR_KEY_HERE>
and I get the error of no wireless adapter found.
The only explanation I can think of is that the Jetson adapter in the wiki page works only for maybe older TK1, but not the AGX Xavier?
Please help. Again, this driver works simply by plugging into a Raspberry Pi, but it doesn’t work even though I followed wiki instructions on the Jetson Wiki Page.
