USB-N13 C1

Post by tblanc » 2020/11/20 10:22:36

Dear All,

I found in your forum that the ASUS USB-N13 was compatible with Centos7. I read that it was an ootb device, that gives me great hope...

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0b05:18f1 ASUSTek Computer, Inc.

Trying to install the driver I get several errors like this :

Do you think I'm waiting my time or there is a possibility to get it working on my system? I tried several things but I'm lost now. The kernel is old but I have to stick with this one.
If not could you please advice on which wireless dongle I should buy?
Thank you for your help.

I'm not seeing anything that supports that USB vendor/device id.

Code: Select all

[root@centos7 ~]# grep -i 0b05 /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.* | grep -i 18f1
[root@centos7 ~]# 
Your best bet if you want to see if a driver can be supplied for this card is to raise a Request For Enhancement ticket on the ELRepo bugtracker and see if they can build a kmod package for it. ELRepo is a third party yum repo that concentrates on providing hardware support for devices that are not included in the main distro.
