The device is being picked up by my pi. I also checked to make sure the 8192cu module is being loaded by the kernel as well. But I simply cannot connect to my wifi. I have tried multiple methods. I have used the provided wifi_config gui. I get the following error message.
Authentication to the driver failed
So I tried to manually go and configure my /etc/network/interfaces file using the following options
auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wpa-ssid = "foo" wpa-psk = "bar"
I have also tried using wicd-curses. All three methods are finding the network just fine, however they all seem to be running issues when trying to connect.
