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.
I just installed Fedora 20 on a computer which previously had windows 7 on it (and Fedora 17 -- dual systems). It has a Bolse wifi adapter plugged into a USB port, and windows liked it just fine. However, Fedora 20 seems to have a problem with it, losing connection to the internet frequently.
I've been using Linux some but still a bit of a noob in the field, and mostly Kubuntu in particular. But, my problem I'm having is that I just recently installed Kubuntu 14.04 64bit to a computer I built and I'm trying to get my WiFi adapter working for it. It's, like the title says, a Netgear WNDA3100.v2.

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?
