I have been trying to give my raspberry pi b+ running raspbian some wifi connectivity. So I bought this Comfast Wifi adapter WU810n chipset http://www.amazon.in/Comfast-CF-WU810N-V2-0-802-11b-Wireless/dp/B00MAC7H3O .
But I am unable to set it up. I have tried many method editing the /etc/networks/interfaces file and also the wpa_supplicant.conf files. But it still doesn't recognize it.
When I do 'lsusb' it shows "Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp." and not the full name of the chipset like it showed in the blogs i referred.
And when I do " sudo ifup wlan0" it returns an error "
wpa_supplicant: /sbin/wpa_supplicant daemon failed to start
run-parts: /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wpasupplicant exited with return code 1
Failed to connect to wpa_supplicant - wpa_ctrl_open: No such file or directory
wpa_supplicant: /sbin/wpa_cli daemon failed to start
run-parts: /etc/network/if-up.d/wpasupplicant exited with return code 1 "
And when I do "ifconfig" it doesn't show wlan0 it only shows eth0 and lo.
Thank you in advance. :)
