Install WiFi

After buying another WiFi USB I had to install the correct drivers. TP-Link only had 2 year old beta drivers for TL-WN823N. Installing them failed multiple times.

I then found “Install-WiFi” which installed the correct drivers without any input.


Download, make executeable, execute

wget -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi


#wget -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
#chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
