I’m having trouble finding a USB wifi dongle/device that will work with Linux. I have tried a few in the past, and just tried another today. A TP-Link TL-WN821N, which states on the box, that it is Linux compatible.
Running KDE Neon 5.14. I can see the wifi router, yet when I try to connect, it just sits there saying “establishing interface” and then disconnects again. I’ve tried searching for a solution with this device, but didn’t find much. If it’s working, I don’t understand why it can’t connect.
G3258, Asus H81 motherboard, 4GB ram, 128GB SSD.
I just bought this device today, so I can return it tomorrow. But does anyone know of USB wifi dongles that should work (for sure)? And that aren’t too expensive (preferably $30 CAD or less)? I would appreciate suggestions.
On Reddit, I found a discussion about this and quite a few people were claiming the Panda PAU05/06 were good and work well with Linux. They are a bit more pricey ($41 on Amazon.ca), but if they work, I don’t mind paying a little more. Can anyone confirm these are good?
