I have a realtek usb dongle plugged in to my Intel Compute Stick that's running fedora 24.
I see it in lsusb:
Bus 001 Device 010 ID 0bda:8175 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN adapter.
nmcli dev, I see the following:
DEVICE TYPE STATE CONNECTION lo ... wlp0s29u1u1u1 wifi unmanaged --
If I change it to managed using
nmcli dev set wlp... managed yes
the status is changed to
If I restart NetworkManager, same.
If I unplug and plug the dongle back in, I see the following in
systemctl status NetworkManager
manager: (wlan0): 'wifi' plugin not available; creating generic device manager: (wlan0): new Generic device (/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Devices/2) device (wlan0) : inteface index 5 renamed iface from 'wlan0' to 'wlp0s29u1u1u2' rfkill3: found WiFi radio killlswitch (at .......)
My WiFi worked when I installed the os. I actually used the network-install image because my usb-storage was not large enough for the full fedora-server image. What am I doing wrong?
Also, when I first listed my connections, the ap that i used during the installation was listed:
NAME UUID TYPE DEVICE SsidName fea2839-fae(not actuall uuid)cdef23422 802-11-wireless --
UPDATE: (response to grochmal)
