ALFA awus036h...any usable distro?
Hi all...I'm stuck since month with the well known problems with the ALFA awus036h antenna.
I've tried everything I found for months in Ubuntu (11.10 and up), Mint, Fedora and the (usually) swiss knife Puppy.
Nothing seems to really work.
I'm NOW browsing for three hours usingthe last fix I found:
disable and reenable wifi (any way)
modprobe rtl8187 (to be sure the driver is up and running)
iwconfig wlan1 rate auto
plug the ALFA again
it works BY NOW, but browsing is too slow, and I don't know what will happen after next reboot.
It SEEMS to me that this problem exists "universally" after some kernel upgrade.
I'd be VERY happy to downgrade to whatever will allows me a decent navigation and fast enough download.
Does anybody know which kernel version really worked with this damn antenna??
I use an old Atom and a desktop with an Athlon64, and I'd like to use the antenna with both these systems
