So I am trying to setup CentOS 8 and initially was trying to do this with no internet access. I have since learned it is a complete PITA to do this so bit the bullet and have plugged a USB Wifi Adapter in. Only to find it does not get recognised, it does on a windows system.
I first of all tried copying across the drivers from the CD but this didn’t do anything.
So I did the lsusb command and it does come up with a Realtek Semiconductor Corp entry. The ID is 0bda:c811 and from looking on the windows machine it is a Realtek RTL8811CU model. No other command seems to show anything though.
I have read lots of guides on installing a driver but they all seem to want me to download something, I have no internet though only that on another Windows PC. So is there somewhere I can get a driver to get this adapter working?
If it is of use the kernel version is = 4.18.0-240.el8.x86_64.
The only other option is to try and get an adapter that just works straight out of the box, so would this do the trick: TB® Ralink 5370 USB Wifi Dongle
