    That's a good eye there. I looked it over, but was on my phone the first time, so tiny screen....

    Compatible Wifi dongle examples

    Hi,
    I'm running PiCorePlayer on a Pi 2B with a Netgear WiFi dongle that unfortunately is using one of the incompatible Realtek chips. And I was unsuccessful at compiling the driver unfortunately.
    Has any of you a compatible wifi dongle on PCP 8, and which model is it please?

    I could replace the Pi with a Pi3B+ or Pi4 with onboard wifi but I'd rather continue using my Pi 2B with an external wifi dongle as it is enclosed in a custom speaker.

    Thank you!

    Edit: you could of course, try squeezelite and your dongle on raspberry PI OS Lite (this is a Legacy Buster which might be better for the old rpi, you can look it up on the rpi.com web page
