3 days on driver issue

Well I guess the title spells it all out…

3 days on driver issue!

The thought was simple – a USB wifi adapter just for when I may either want two network ports  (playing with router box software) or I just want the pc away from the cable connection as I’m using it where remote software isn’t an option….

OK should be simple – buy adapter plug in … maybe throw a disk into the pc or visit a website a few clicks maybe a bit of typing and hey presto up n running….

Finally … for a different flavour of Linux with a different version number but essentially similar build … a driver written for a few USB chips … and a detailed write-up for a laptop

now installed and working!

the moral of this … thank you to all those that not only code but also those that write up their solutions to odd issues – we collectively owe you a beer!
