Anyone have a wifi adapter, either USB or PCI-E that they know has a working driver and really likes? I'm working on building a computer specifically for linux.
I am using Xubuntu distribution, and just installed the SMCWUSB-N2 wireless adapter in a Compaq desktop (around year 2000). The adapter is recognised and starts working fine with the "default" (built-in) Xubuntu driver, but after 2 to 4 minutes, the adapter shuts down and internet connection is lost.
I'm trying to get a TP link TL-WN823N USB wifi adapter to work on a RPi but I:
a) have never used/installed/configured wifi on a *nix system
b) am puzzled about the driver
so any help will be appreciated a lot.

My computer, HP Pavilion p7-1512, has an ethernet cable adapter and a WiFi adapter. Under Win8 the cable connection is used if the cable is plugged in and the WiFi is used otherwise, without user action. Under Linux the cable interface works but the WiFi adapter, Ralink RT5390R, is not recognized. My question is this: How do I force the system to recognize the WiFi interface?
I recently upgraded from Lubuntu 12.10 to 13.10 on my HP NX6110 Laptop with a Intel Pro 2200BG wifi adapter. The wifi worked fine on 12.10.....at first it worked fine on 13.10 as well. This afternoon after running for a hour or so, the wifi adapter just quit working. I cannot figure out what happened to it, although the system still sees the adapter....I cannot enable it.
Hi everybody! Here's the deal: I upgraded to Kernel 3.1.9 three days ago, everything went fine, I'm on a Acer Aspire 4552 with a Broadcom Wireless adapter (I'm using the opensource driver, brcmsmac. it was working great before the upgrade).
I currently use the wifi from my bosses apartment upstairs. Use a usb wifi adapter to get internet to my pc. I also have a NAS that I would like to be able to use locally through ethernet. Doesn't seem to detect it at all if I connect it directly to my pc.
I can see it though if I route it through my router. Problem is I can only get one thing working at a time.
