I have installed Geexbox on my old cubox (1st generation), but wifi dongle doesn’t work.
below you can find some details about my system.
someone can help me to recognise this wifi dongle

output from an install script found for rapsberry:
Your current kernel revision = 3.6.9+ Your current kernel build = #1 Checking for a wifi module to determine the driver to install. Your wifi module is Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0bda:818b Realtek Semiconductor Corp. And it uses the 8192eu driver.September 29, 2018 at 08:30 #12410
You can try to install this package manually. It contains an (untested) 8192eu driver for the old Cubox.
BTW, are you really running an original Geexbox 3 (XBMC 13.x) and not a later snapshot (Kodi 16.1)? If you really have the original version, I’d strongly suggest to update. However, it may not boot if the loader on the SPI-flash is too old. Updating this one can be quite an odyssey, but is doable 😉September 29, 2018 at 14:43 #12412
Now the dongle work.
BTW, I have installed this snapshot from cubox installer script
It is last update or I need to upgrade it?
for the u-boot, I flashed this bin: u-boot-cubox_hynix_cubox_2GB_uart.bin
because my old cubox was bricked.
PS. Now I have problem to enable Live Tv (IPTV), need to open new topic or I can explain my problem here?

Glad that your WiFi is working now. The new package will appear on the snapshot site in a few days. As for your software versions: That is O.K. The snapshot will receive regular updates from our automated build system, which you can install via opkg. But it will most likely stay at Kodi 16 because we don’t have the resources to port the proprietary code parts over to newer Kodi versions. There is a chance that it might be supported by Kodi >= 18 + Linux mainline + mesa + ffmpeg, but I’m not so terribly optimistic about that. The armada platform rather old now and not widely used. And this new approach still has a lot problems. Even on much more common platforms…
As for the other thing: Please start a new topic as it does not seem to be related to the WiFi adapter.
