Then install the driver:
Code:
tar -zxvf 8188eu-20140616.tar.gz
sudo install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
sudo insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
sudo depmod -a
Now the wifi info should be entered.
This is in the file: /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
Add the network config here (for wpa here's an example)
Code:
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={
    ssid="MySsiD"
    psk="TheNetworkPasscode"
}

And reboot to set the network information.
