How to configure MOD-RTL8188 on most of the official OLinuXino Debian releases:

Check the Ethernet and WLAN interfaces by typung:

#ifconfig -a

and look at your number of the wlan. For instance, we have wlan3

open the file /etc/network/interfaces - for example, by using nano text editor

# nano /etc/network/interfaces

and edit the wpa-ssid and wpa-psk with the values of your network

# auto wlan3

iface wlan3 inet dhcp

wpa-ssid YourSSIDname

wpa-psk YourWPAkey

After you are done press 'shift' + 'o' to save. Then press 'shift' + 'x' to exit the nano editor.

Then write:

# ifup wlan3

To enable the interface.

If the interface doesn't yet start, reboot the board.
