I bought an Android device that doesn't come with WiFi but comes with USB hosts and, as stated in the site, supports Wifi dongles. But mine is not working.

I successfully plugged in a USB mouse, keyboard, hard-drive and a bluetooth dongle but specifically the WiFi dongle doesn't even turn on (the light doesn't turn on).

Is there anything else I can try?


You need to find a WiFi dongle with a chipset the device supports. Each chipset requires different drivers, so you'll have to find one that's supported. There a discussion thread on the site you linked to about exactly this.

  • Thanks.. I didn't even know this site had a forum for each product. I already ordered a compatible dongle for $10 – andrerpena Mar 23 '12 at 12:55
