Best USB WiFi Device to use with aircrackng
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 12, 2009
I have recently gotten a Lenovo S10e netbook and put the latest netbook remix of Ubuntu on there (not sure of the name, haven't checked).
As it turns out the linux BroadComm drivers don't offer support for the version of the BCM4312 (According to: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 , lspci output: 05:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01) )
This meas that I can't use the aircrack-ng tools, so I've decided to get a usb WiFi device for that purpose. Problem is I'm no hardware-buff, so I don't know which one to get.
So which one should I get?
Linux compatible USB wifi adapter?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 7, 2013
I was wondering if anyone could tell me a specific make and model USB WIFI adapter that will work with Ubuntu? I've been through 3 so far and had to bring all back to Tiger Direct because I couldn't get Ubuntu to find them, of course they don't come with any Linux drivers. My computers are not situated in a manner in which it's possible to hardwire them since I moved... Any help would be greatly appreciated
Getting USB WiFi dongle to work in Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 19, 2010
I've bought this Blumax USB WLAN adapter 9009 (ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501/RT2573 Wireless Adapter). I was specifically happy to read in its specs that it supports Linux (http://blu-max.com/products/wlan_adapter.html).
However, it turned out that the co-packaged CD drive doesn't contain anything Linux-related, and the support page online has gzip package with many files I don't know what to do with (http://blu-max.com/downloads/drivers...A_v18.104.22.168.tgz).
The online support swallowed my query and hasn't returned any answer.
So, now I am wondering what to do. I don't feel so competent as to be able to compile the drivers on my own, specifying several specific parameters. At least it doesn't compile with default params. I'd appreciate any advice, how to move forward with this. Apart from returning the device, because I'm too far now from the place where I bought this.

I've been searching online for the highest quality (and preferably least expensive) USB to PS/2 converter cable for my forthcoming System 76 laptop. Has anyone here purchased these types of cables, and, if so, which is the most reliable cable for use in Linux?

Whats the best usb game controler to buy for linux ????
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 23, 2009
I did a thread search here for 'usb game controller' most of the threads that I read were about problems and not success.
I also did a google and yahoo search "linux usb game controller" that yielded alot of hype about how great the different controlers were but little to no information about their use in Linux
I'm running a 2.16Ghz Celeron laptop, 3Gb ram with a Intel 4500Gma and 160Gb Hd.
Currently I have vista home, ubuntu8.0 and Kubuntu9.10a6 for installed operating systems.
I mainly want to get away from having to use the keyboard and mouse for games like neverball and extreme tux racer so I'm here to ask the experts.
What Linux USB game controller should I buy on my $40 budget ?
Thanks in advance !

Wanted: 802.11n usb wifi adapter dongle for linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 5, 2013
This is for my desktop which has no built-in wifi adapter. I am currently using a ZyXel dongle which works fine using the zd1211-firmware package. The problem is it does not support 802.11n. It only has 802.11b/g support and this results in a 33% loss in connection speed.
I made the mistake of ordering a SAVFY dongle from Amazon but can't get it to work. I should have read the reviews before ordering it. They all say it is a piece of junk. In any event it cost £5.95 which I have written off.
Can anyone recommend a dongle supporting 802.11n which actually does work with linux and is easy to install or at least has clear instructions. I found this one: IOGEAR Compact Wireless-N USB Adapter GWU625 (Black), also on Amazon but would appreciate your personal recommendations for one that is known to play nicely with linux.
Thanks for your help.
Enabling a usb wifi modem in Linux?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 20, 2012
I have been to many forums, done dozens of posts and visited 100s of web sites in the last few months and learned quite a few things:
1. If you ask a simple question about linux you will get a dozen wrong answers and...
2. I don't know what drugs were being smoked at the time but Ubuntu is nowhere near as friendly as the hype makes out.
I'll ask the same basic question that countless Linux users do not know the answer to...
...my wifi mini does not work so I bought a usb wifi modem that supposedly works with Ubuntu (and most definitely works in win 7... or even XP for that matter) BUT wicd doesn't show any option for using the usb modem (only allows for the use of the non-functioning mini and the ethernet port) so how do you make a usb wifi modem work in Ubuntu?
You may think I am stupid for not knowing how to do it BUT Microsoft has been able to release an OS that automatically detects and configures basic hardware for a long time now so that leads me to believe your so
