wireless-3.0.21-tinycore contains:

rtl8180, rtl8187, rtl8192c/ce/cu/se

..you could try these to see if they'll work

Is this a USB adapter??   is that  rtl8188ru  a typo?   

maybe it's this one?  RTL8192SU/RTL8188SU/RTL8191SU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter

if so I may have the (driver) extension  for it, I just haven't submitted it yet for the repository, but I guess I can send it to you for testing :)

It's an ALFA AWU036NHR USB adapter! It'll be great if you send it to me :D The other question how to install it :-\ I found some articles about it, now trying to "get married" with compat-wireless-2.6.39 but still nothing((((

Odly we are creating a wiki to help folks with this very issue..  here is the direct link list_of_supported_wifi_devices 

From the command line type:   lsusb   to correctly identify the chip used in the device.    afaik the chip could be manufactured by either  RealTek or a Ralink

Welcome cep33920

You'll find the driver in the repository under the name of " wl-rtl8192u-3.0.21-tinycore " or " wireless-3.0.21-tinycore "

the device will also need firmware found in " firmware.tcz "

Install both the above with tc's wifi connection manager " wifi.tcz "and you'll be set.  Simply select the wifi icon and follow the prompts to connect.

Yes exactly, tinypoodle hit the nail on the head.  modules are not loaded.  Are the extensions listed in your onboot.lst ?

For this device you should have at least these modules loaded when the command lsmod is executed

rtlwifi
rtl8192cu

and possibly
rtl8192c_common
cfg80211
mac80211

The list of mounts indicate there are many extensions installed most are not required, but the firmware.tcz which is required is missing..!

Isn't it listed under loop18?
