Question Is WNDA3100v3 supported by openSUSE natively?


Is WNDA3100v3 (MT7632U chip) supported by openSUSE natively? If is, does it perform well as an wireless AP?

I've checked my system and it doesn't look as though it will out of the box. You would probably have to compile it yourself or use dkms.
I'd be surprised if this hasn't been looked at on github, if you do a search. They usually have these issues sorted with instructions.

I'm not sure which firmware drives MT7632U, maybe a series of chips require the same driver, and MediaTek doesn't create a page for it. I can only find mt7601u.bin in the folder.

Try this if you want to load your driver.

Is this suitable for ARMv8 openSUSE?

From wikidevi.com it's said that MT7632U requires the same driver as MT7662U. Could you please find if it's existed?

Apart from the fact that I have an ARM chip on my mobile phone I know nothing about ARM and how it affects the compilation of kernel modules.
If you dig through the makefile in the link you will see the architectures included but that's as much as I know.
The only MTK wifi chipset I can see included in the kernel is MT7601u.

Well, after upgrading the kernel firmwares (released in June), I discovered mt7662u.bin, but I've got another adapter. Thanks.
