Yes, I had. There I found that that my USB Wifi adapter is supported:
when I plug in the WiFi usb adapter, lsusb shows the following:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS
802.11n WLAN Adapter
and on the webpage https://wiki.debian.org/rtl819x there is this davice
USB: 0BDA:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN
On the web page: https://wiki.debian.org/rtl819x there I found the
rtl8192cu (supported devices)
Supports USB devices based on the RTL8188CUS and RTL8192CU chips.
Introduced in Linux 2.6.39, enabled at
