wifi usb adapter

Postby jony127 » 2020-02-15 00:38

Hello,

i'm looking for a wifi usb adapter that works on debian 10. i'm looking for options but i'm not sure if they work on debian or not.

I would like a non-nano-type wifi adapter, but I don't know which one to choose. Any recommendations that would have good compatibility with debian 10?

Thank you.

This one works for me:
Code: Select all
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 148f:2070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2070 Wireless Adapter

Needs the firmware-ralink package though.

Strange, I don't see that chipset supported here https://packages.debian.org/buster/firmware-misc-nonfree

Not that strange, since you're not looking at the correct firmware-ralink package.

Edit--my bad, it's a "dummmy package" (sic) pointing to the misc package.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Kodi 18.6, Strawberry 0.6.11, Muse 3.1.0, Chromium with va-api, Audacity 2.4.1, Kdenlive 20.04
