Thanks to rainlake and ratri, after a lot of digging into Realtek's RTL8192CU and RTL8188CUS driver (http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/dow ... Down=false
) I managed to build the driver that's working for RTL8188CUS based devices.
This is what I've bought http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/deta ... =TL-WN723N
The device's ID is 0BDA:8176 REV_0200
The problem with rtl8192cu.ko driver was that in autoconf.g the line for CONFIG_IOCTL_CFG80211 is remarked. Therefore ioctl is not build with the driver. So I removed the remark and rebuild the driver. It is now working for my device according to the instructions rainlake has provided. That is:
1) copy rtl8192cu.ko to /system/lib/modules after you have mounted with rw (I usually run ESexplorer with root options)
2) rename /system/lib/modules/rkwifi.ko -> /system/lib/modules/rkwifi.ko.old in case you need that later
3) rename /system/lib/modules/rtl8192cu.ko -> /system/lib/modules/rkwifi.ko
4) fix permitions, I do that from terminal, but I think you can do that from ESExplorer as well
chmod go+r /system/lib/modules/rtl8192cu.ko
chown root:root /system/lib/modules/rtl8192cu.ko
So I include the driver in case someone else with RTL8188CUS chipset wants to check.
Thanks for the driver and all your work! I've been trying to get rainlake's 8192cu.ko driver to work with my ENCORE ENUWI-2XN42 Wireless N300 adapter : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6833180075
FCC ID: YZ500000005
Chip 1: Realtek RTL8192CU
with no luck. But, yours, kind of works
and when it does, I get 300 Mbps! Strange though, if I just install your driver, the usual way over the onboard rkwifi driver, I get all gray bars. I then have to uninstall it, go back to onboard wifi driver, install rainlake's driver (wifi doesn't turn on), reboot the device, install your driver over rainlakes, reboot, and then I get blue bars ...
If I reboot, I have to repeat process to get it to work again.
If you have any ideas on how to make it work more easily I'd greatly appreciate it.**EDIT**
It appears to power off and back on now without issues, driver sticks and everything works great!
