I am hoping someone has ran into this issue before: when trying to use a wifi adaptor that is on the SOTM driver list, the adaptor itself does not receive power/is not recognised by eunhasu.
1. Bought the sms 200 off these classifieds (much appreciated)
2. at first it did not want to play ball - wouldn't connect to the router via Ethernet. Turns out a flash was needed.
3. It then connected post flash via LAN to the router direct, however wouldn't play ball with a pi running as an Ethernet access point.
4. Ended up splashing for the Archer T4U wifi adaptor to try and get it sorted...but now that won't even power up*
*if i plug the adaptor into my windows laptops, its power light flashes immediately and off it goes. However on the SOTM, it does NOT seem to receive any power. Even weirder, if i plug in a simple usb-sd card reader into that same usb port, it immediately receives power from the sms 200.
Any ideas/tips/tricks to getting the sms 200 to powering/recognising the usb wifi adaptor would be much appreciated.
Too many hours wasted on this thing already!
