I need a wifi dongle for a school project I am working on. We will
probably use ubuntu on the board.
I found a list a while back that listed compatible chipsets, but i
cant find it, and I am new to linux so it is hard to figure out what
is there a more human-readable list for usb wifi dongles that work
with beagleboard ubuntu?
The wifi dongle needs to be:
easy to use
easy to find
small in size
any help would be appreciated.
For the ubuntu kernel's there is a very minimal list put together from
rtl8187, rt73, zd1211 based devices seem to be supported the best,
although my zd1211 hasn't been working. Firmware loads correctly, but
dhclient takes down the interface...
So how do I tell before I buy what chipset a wifi dongle has?
Well, looking at google there appear to be some dongles that use
rtl8187, rt73 chipsets (shopping). they are off brands but that isn't
that big of a deal. are all of these chipsets wireless g?
Google for it?
This is a beagleboard list, not a list to throw random questions to
and especially not random questions that you could easily resolved
yourself with a few minutes of research!
