Is it possible to install arch linux with my only internet coming from a wifi usb adapter? I am currently using a TP-Link Wireless N Nano USB Adapter Model No. TL-WN725N.

Whenever I try to use sudo wifi-menu or iwconfig, nothing helpful ever shows up. I am guessing that it can't read the usb wifi drivers. This is before partitioning and everything.

Is there a way install arch linux with a usb wifi adapter?

Thank you.

It is possible to install arch-linux through a wifi connection (USB or built-in wifi card) only if the wifi driver is supported by the linux kernel , In your case the 8188eu isn't supported.

You can use another USB ( e,g : USB with ath9k_htc , rt2500usb ... more available here ) .

The wifi card will be detected and configured easily through the wifi-menu command.
