Title: Ersatz wifi connection for OlinuxIno-maxi
Post by: flavigny on October 10, 2012, 06:38:41 am
Hello,
as many of you, I am waitting for using a usb-wifi dongle.
BTW, I have found an alternative, linking RJ45 to wifi:
I use a Netgear WNCE2001 (30 € by amazon.fr).
Probably convenient EDUP EP-2906 (TO BE VALIDATED, I have not tried it), cheaper from China:
17$ by AliExpress: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Fast-Shipping-EDUP-EP-2906-Portable-Mini-150M-Wireless-N-USB-Wifi-AP-Router-Wholesale-Retail/519610975.htmlhttp://www.aliexpress.com/item/Fast-Shipping-EDUP-EP-2906-Portable-Mini-150M-Wireless-N-USB-Wifi-AP-Router-Wholesale-Retail/519610975.html
23 $ by ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/150Mbps-Wire-to-Wireless-Wifi-Signal-Coverage-Expand-AP-Router-Adapter-EP2906-/250965180823?pt=COMP_EN_Routers&hash=item3a6eb0c197 .
My adapter is primarilly configured by cable on any computer with a browser (SSID, encryption, key...) and then is reusable on OlinuxIno-Maxi WITHOUT no more.
Just plug it and you are connected to your wifi.
Regards.
PO.
