lsusb -> RTL8188CUS
lsmod -> 8189es
and that's as far as I can get.  I can plug the dongle into my laptop (386-64) and it's there and working.  But on my OPI-PC - nothing.
Directions???
Tks

I've switched to Armbrian and now Ive got wlanX.
wlan5     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:11:7f:8c:0d:e5  
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

I've been playing with iwconfig and nmcli and I can break it be I can't get a connection.  Under /etc/network which interface do you recommend I use?

[ SOLVED ]

Ok, I switched to Armbian.  I kept trying all of the several interfaces.xxxx in /etc/network, played with iwconfig, nmcli - ended with a bloody forehead (and screen).  Went to the Armbian Forum, searched for "static ip" and a few links later found
<code>
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.0.57
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.0
gateway 192.168.0.1
</code>

and I came right up - you've got to be kidding.  So I added
<code>
auto wlan5
iface wlan5 inet static
wep-ssid <my-ssid>
wep-psk <my-key>
address 192.168.0.58
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.0
</code>

and I'm up on lan and wifi ....  KISS

Well not really - if I disconnect eth0, wlanx dies.  iwlist scan returns my router, 2 rokus, a tablet and... connect via wifi - no!

[SOLVED]
WOOPEEEE! I was pointed to a post

   http://forum.armbian...-module-8192cu/


and this:

cd /usr/src/linux-headers-3.4.110-sun8i/
make scripts # this you will skip in the future when we fix the building process
cd
git clone https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes
cd rtl8192cu-fixes
make ARCH=arm
# when done

modprobe -r <any 81xxx entries>
insmod 8192cu.ko
# dmesg
usbcore: registered new interface driver rtl8192cu

and

/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules gets  "8192cu"



Some playing around - hair pulling - dhcp works - and my static 192...58 is there. I'm logged in.
