1 Answer 1


Yes, there is a driver to install, but in order to find which one, you need to identify the chipset in your specific dongle.

  1. Boot up your Pi, without connecting your WiFi adapter
  2. Open a terminal (CTRL-ALT-T)
  3. Enter command lsusb
  4. Connect your WiFi adapter
  5. Enter command lsusb again, and compare the list of devices to your previous list from step 3. The new entry is your WiFi adapter, listing the chipset.
  6. Follow these instructions.

  • There's a few steps in the instructions (click on the ink in step 6) to make sure the Pi has everything it needs to use WiFi, after that, you should be able to use WiFi.
