Ok thanks. I have successfully configured another dongle (Netgear wna3100m).
But it should be cool to have onboard wifi working with the (future?) "Orangian" !!

Ok, so I think wifi must be activate in script.bin file.
Here the link to configure it:http://linux-sunxi.org/Fex_Guide#us_wifi_configuration
After change, using the program fex2bin to compile the fex file and get the new script.bin file .
I will try it today

Hello.

According to this: http://linux-sunxi.org/Wifi the RTL8188ETV chipset is supported by sunxi-3.4 branch of https://github.com/linux-sunxi/linux-sunxi. Proper kernel module is 8188eu. But to use this You must enable usb wifi in script.bin. I'm waiting for my board to arrive and cannot test this, but I've compiled kernel with proper modules and if anyone interested i can share kernel and headers packed in deb for Debian based distros. My kernel have only compiled in ext4 support [btrfs, xfs etc are modules] but it should be enought to start very big range of distributions (I don't know what is the default filesystem in Bananian, but if it is ex2/ext3/ext4 it will be working).

EDIT:
I forget my kernel uses this sources https://github.com/dan-and/linux-sunxi.

Ok. My OrangePI arrived. First tests on wifi with no luck. Could You upload Your script.bin from lubuntu? Also dmesg output and lsmod? I'm trying to determinate where is the problem.
