Wifi dongle not working (Recalbox 6.1.1, PC x86_64)

  • Hi!
    I am desperate! I have been searching for answers to my problem for days but without luck. Therefore I am now writing here as a last resort.

    My setup: I have installed Recalbox 6.1.1 pc x86_64 to a micro ssd card connected with usb to my pc. I then have a separate usb for my roms, themes and so on.
    Everything works great except for getting the wifi to work. I also have a keyboard and controller connected by usb. I have bought the recommended wifi dongle (Edimax EW-7811Un) but I can't seem to get it to work at all.

    When trying to search for available wifis in the recalbox interface nothing is found. I have tried disabling and re-enabling several times. I have also manually put in the login details to the config but that doesn't work at all. Does anyone have an idea on how I can make it work? 😞

    Below is the output of ssh "dmesg" which I hope helps. Please note that I am using an Ethernet cable to be able to do this.
