The cure to your wireless woes. :)

Posted 04-04-2011 at 10:49 AM by ichase

If you are like me, new to linux (October 2010) and have had the multiple headaches getting wireless up and running in Linux, have I got a gem for you. After trying multiple USB wifi receivers and failing to get them up and running I was recently introduced by a fellow penguin to the Alfa 1000mW 1W 802.11b/g USB Wireless WiFi Network Adapter
I'm certain that just about every distro out right now has the driver for this thing built in. (rtl8187)
The box comes with a 5db antenna which...

Hello Linux World

I've used this site many times for linux help and I finally set up a account here. Wanted to get into the community of linux and open source users. Already it seems like the site will be a great help.

Hi all, this is my first entry to this blog. I have been member of LQ for a while, I referred to this whenever I had a doubt regarding , of course, Linux installed in my system. To all the newbies here, if you were windows guy and planned to switch onto Linux( no matter what distro) then I'd prefer having a dual boot in your system. It might degrade performance a little bit but it allows you to switch to your previous buggy OS ;-) ...jokes apart, at some point, as you've just started, you are likely...

So I've installed Wheezy for AMD64 - it goes like a rocket.

I just got done writing one of those "everything is predetermined/life is meaningless" posts...why isn't it up here, then? Because I know that nobody who even visits the LQ blog section regularly wants to see it anymore. I save them locally to my hard disk, though, just for some kind of weird posterity.

I guess the point is taken: if I want help with those issues, I'm gonna need to seek it from someplace other than the 'net...it's just that I've become way too...
