Hi All,

I finally received my ASUS USB N10 Wifi Dongle and i first tested it on my Windows desktop if it was working fine ,

it worked great so i decided to give it a try with RPi.

Used OS : 2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian [Since it already includes the ASUS Driver]


1. Hooked up the ASUS USB N10 Wifi Dongle to one of the ports on my RPi and rest of the keyboard and other peripherals to USB Hub and booted.

2. After i got the $ prompt

3. Entered lsusb
You should get following on one line.
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0b05:1786 ASUSTek Computer, Inc. USB-N10 802.11n Network Adapter [Realtek RTL8188SU]

4. Entered lsmod

You should get following on one line.
r8712u 180848 0

5. Now time to Edit the interfaces file.

Traverse to the following path /etc/network and open “interfaces” file in an editor

5.1 Create a Backup of the interfaces file
sudo cp interface interfaces.backup
ls -l

On ls- l you should see the interfaces.backup file will be created.

5.2 Open in file in editor

sudo nano interfaces

5.3 Append the code to the interfaces file without the quotes for ssid and wpa-psk key

allow-hotplug wlan0
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid "your network ssid"
wpa-psk "network passwd"

5.4 Save it using Ctrl+X

6. Reboot your RPi.
