(RPI3) DISABLE BULT-IN WIFI & USE USB WIFI ADAPTER

Post by estefano.peroza » Wed Dec 14, 2016 10:24 pm

Hello there!

My Built-in WIFI in Raspberry PI 3 has really low range (signal starts to decay after 10 meters of distance from the router)
I would like to disable my built-in wifi and install a USB Wifi adapter instead. I've read that Wtware supports most of the newest Realtek Chipset models and i just bought one.
How should i proceed ?

Thank you !!

Connect USB WiFi adapter and run. If wtware has driver for it, it will use usb device instead of built-in.
If it still uses built-in, connect to wifi (usb one should be connected!) and send us a log: http://wtware.com/docs5/logs.html
