[SOLVED] Linux wifi NIC edimax EW7711In compatibility (aircrackng)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 23, 2011
I am planning to buy wifi NIC, and I would like to have it very compatible with Linux systems and also aircrack-ng apps.
Seemingly best choice for me is Edimax EW-7711In, which should have Ralink RT3062 chipset (source - WikiDevi.com), which has official drivers for Linux (source - Ralinktech.com). Also, Edimax website provides drivers for Linux (name of file contains RT3062, so I consider chipset verified).
My question is, does anybody have this card? Can you confirm it's functionality under Linux? Are you satisfied with your choice? Anyone with same chipset? (...same question about it)
Note: Not meant to be advertisement. I haven't ever bought any card from them, neither bought any PCI wifi NIC.
Linux wifi backports cross compile
location: linuxexchange.com - date: April 23, 2014
I am trying to backport Linux wifi drivers from 3.11 to linux-omap-l1(2.6.39). I set up the cross compiler on my Ubuntu 11.4 (kernel is 2.6.38-11-generic) and verified that the cross-compiled kernel can run on an ARM processor as expected. I also was able to backport the wifi drivers to this Ubuntu by following the "Usage Guide" section. However, I have problem to cross compile the wifi backports. Here are two attempts I did:
Following the "Cross compiling" section from the same link above, I set ARCH(=arm), CROSS_COMPILER, KLIB_BUILD(=linux-omap-l1 directory) and KLIB(=linux-omap-l1 directory), ran make defconfig-wifi, then ran make -j4. It finished without any error. However when I check the generated ko files, they are apparently not cross compiled because they look like "rt2x00usb.ko: ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped"
Then I cleaned the old make result and passed the above four macros directly to make as arguments and r
Am I crazy? Ultimate Linux wifi/ethernet router idea ...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2009
b43 has gotten really good. (I have an older compaq laptop that has a bcom chipset).
So, I was thinking (since I don't have a wifi router), for about 300USD, build an el cheapo neato system from parts from newegg and set it up as a monster wifi router.
The idea behind this is:
- wifi/ethernet router (with named, dhcpd, routed, etc.)
- LAMP stack (substitute P with your favorite web language)
- file/media server (sshfs/nfs/samba)
- VPN point
Think Linksys with DD-WRT on steroids, yet not a high end server. It can also allow to serve content from an external USB devices and even eSata devices if it's possible to turn a sata port into an eSata port (are they the same?)
Here's the part list if anyone is interested (all from newegg) totaling just under 300USD (I have a spare HDD to use):
Qty. Product Description Savings Total Price
1 G.SKILL 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory

Copy working Ubuntu/Linux Mint wifi drivers to Debian.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 18, 2013
I have a Linux Mint laptop with working WIFI and I want to install debian but I do not know how to install the Realtek WIFI drivers which can be found here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...oads=true#2292
So, if someone could explain how to install drivers on Linux, I would appreciate it. OR if you could take a look at my lspci of my WIFI card and tell me which Realtek open source/generic will work in Debian.
here is the lspci of my wifi card:
03:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter (rev 01)
If you can tell me the generic then I would be happy to get it from synaptic in Debian instead of messing around with proprietary drivers. Then again, It would be a good exercise to learn how to install drivers

Anyone has ever tried to hack archos 605 wifi with any linux distro and had any success? I think this hardware is a good candidate to hack. Just wondering what can be done and how to hack it. Thanks.
WiFi not working on Linux Mint
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 2, 2011
Hi guys, my brother (my other one, not the one who fixes everything with a hammer ) just got a Dell D620 like me, but unlike me, he installed Linux Mint instead of Ubuntu and his WiFi says he has missing firmware. He has a DW 1490 PCIe Mini card. I know the card is not the problem, as I used it with no problem for months. I Googled "DW 1490 driver", but all that came up were drivers for Windows. What can I do, and why did wireless work on mine but not his?
Half heigh two antenna wifi card for laptop with good Linux compatibility?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 15, 2013
I am looking for a new wifi card for my laptop. I am looking for the following characteristics:
-High quality - High signal
-Full stable linux drivers. I am currently using ArchLinux 3.10.9-1
I had a rtl8723ae but reception was poor at best and the Linux drivers were too unstable to use. At the moment I am using a Intel Wifi Link 5200 which I took out of an old laptop. The reception is Ok and the drivers are stable.
I was wondering if you could recommend some good card.
Thanks for the help!
