      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Wireless Configuration

Recommended Posts

Hi all. This is not a Mandriva/Mageia query, but I'm sure we can sort it.


This is for a MK802 arm device with android on the flash memory, but boots off a correctly structured sd card. I grabbed the image from:

Lubuntu image, so it's an image not a self generated install.


My MK802, of course, has a different wireless chip to that used in the image (I assume this means I have a Chinese copy :( ).


So this is what I can tell you:


Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0bda:0179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

uname -a
Linux miniand 3.0.36-t1+ #14 PREEMPT Tue Jul 3 12:27:08 EST 2012 armv71 armv71 armv71 GNU/Linux


Some reading around suggests that I need to get the driver from Realtek, while others suggest it just needs to be configured. All help appreciated.
