Help finding a good wifi adapter

Postby alexwazan » 2020-05-28 15:52

Hello. I decided to install Debian Wheezy on the ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe motherboard, but, unfortunately, the WiFi adapter is not detected in the network setup process - therefore, I can’t connect via WiFi to the existing access point and finish the installation. As I understand it, I have a Broadcom BCM43xx WiFi adapter (it seems, BCM4359).
indeed I give up on this adapter and I want to get new Wifi adapter I need your recommendation for a good adapter with monitor mode support , I don't want a Chinese one I want a good one that will work out of the box with debian

There's no way you should be installing Wheezy on anything connected to the internet.
I'm happily running both Buster and Sid on a Gigabyte EP45-UD3R which is 4 years older than yours.
Install Buster on it, you might be able to get your Broadcom working although it can be tricky and may involve installing both a driver and non-free firmware.
If you do still want a new adapter, ones based on Atheros chip seem to be better supported. And good luck finding any which are not made in China!
