To be clear, I am not trying to use the dongle as a second radio, just to connect a client to the wifi LAN of the Mango.
I have tried to connect two cheap wifi dongles with my GL-MT300N-V2 (Mango) and both work with any other wifi radio, but not my Mango. I am wondering if anyone can suggest a cheap ( ~$10) wifi dongle that is known to work on Linux (especially RPi) and can connect as a client to the Mango.
I have tried TP-Link TL-WN725N and Edimax EW-7811Un.
Maybe this is a driver issue, if anyone knows a working driver that can be downloaded from a reliable source, that will work too. I think these dongles might have the same chipset, (RealTek 8188??), but I’m not sure yet.
The Mango works perfectly with Android, it’s amazing for the price, but I would love to use this thing with my Raspberry Pi 2B+
