Has anyone been able to get this to work on the raspberry pi yet? If so could you help me out. I know it works on windows10, plug and play. But i dont think the pi see it.
Probably i am doing something wrong, love to know what, and how I can get it to work.

first head to the RaspberryPI forums. they are the ones who can help you. they ask you to type lsusb at the command line to see if it sees it. and then find what chooser it uses. in the gui, assuming you are using Raspian and it's fully up to date, is it listed under the WiFi bit. also check out the getting started on Raspberry website on how to use wi-fi

Well thanks or the info. Just though i ask on here, before signing up there.
I purchased the TOSHIBA WLM-30U2 USB WiFi Adapter that was posted on here. I have tried following a couple of guides.
It's showing as on BUS 001 Device 038: ID 148f:5572 Ralink Technology, Corp.

Not seen many use RaLink chipset much, so certainly hit the forums, but try raspberrypi.org/doc…ss/

RaLink 5572 is the chipset I believe, so do a search on that but as you should be on Jessie and not wheezy by now, then try any info from this year only for networks.

Depends if it old and you've not been keeping it up to date, I assumed above you did.
raspberrypi.org/doc….md

But if it is quite a bit older (say early 2016) then it worth just getting the latest version as it might be quicker if you have nothing to loose.
You can install an OS from Android now (find the app in the app store if you've not got a computer)
raspberrypi.org/for…951

Does anyone have a link to a Windows XP driver for this wifi dongle? Thanks, Dan
