Recommended wireless chipset?
This sounds like something that I should be able to Google in around 10 seconds, but I've only been able to find a few old threads on this.
I have a couple of Realtek 8192cu-based USB WiFi dongles, but neither will play nice on my openSUSE 12.3 desktop. The connection will either drop out after a while, or the pc will see but not connect to the network. From what I've read online,the problem seems to be with the rtl8192cu driver. Realtek offers a newer driver, but it is not compatible with my 3.7 kernel.
Given the prices involved, I figure I'm best off simply replacing the dongle, but I'm not sure what chipset to go for. I basically want something with reliable drivers that are likely to remain supported in future kernels.
