Kebidu RTL8811AU AC 600Mbps

Hi I bought a few of these thinking they were the same as the ones I had previously bought. They are Cheep about US$4

These did not work automatically when I plugged them in. After a little investigation I found they detect as a 16M usb drive and you need usb_modeswitch to get them to switch to being a wifi adapter.

To make them work install Addons > System Tools
This adds the usb_modeswitch command to coreelec.

Then add the following to the autostart.sh in the config directory

#!/bin/sh

(
usb_modeswitch -KW -v 0bda -p 1a2b
) &

Reboot and the device will be detected as wlan1

This was using the internal wifi A95X 2.4G
