basic wifi praxis


There seems to be a lot of questions about wifi lately. What follows here are a few simple things to keep in mind when, and to do first, when asking about wifi problems.

1) Please remember that Linux wifi is in a constant state of improvement. Support is constantly changing.

2) If you are looking for pci card support for LL, please open a terminal and run this command first:  lspci -vnn | grep 14e4

3) Go to this link:   https://wikidevi.com/wiki/List_of_Wi-Fi_Device_IDs_in_Linux   and look for the id that matches your card.

4) Drivers list here:  https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers

5) If you are using USB   rt2800usb   is the most widely supported. Panda wireless runs this chip and is basically plug and play in Linux.
