Hello, anybody had any luck getting ASUS USB-N10 Nano work? It is supposed to work on linux, still I cant find the proper driver. The device id is 0B05:17BA. Any hints will be appreciated.

Note: I had no luck compiling vendor provided drivers.

Edit:

https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes ... module that i can get from here seems to start (according to presence of messages in dmesg) however the interface that appears in iwconfig list is enp0s29u1u2 for me and claims there are no wireless extensions

jd823592 ... the device was renamed by udev, this can be disabled/changed via various methods the simplist of which is to add 'net.ifnames=0' to your kernel parameters.

The "no wireless extensions" message from iwconfig is due to WEXT having been replaced with NL80211/CFG80211 you can either use a tool that supports the new netlink (like net-wireless/iw) or enable CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT in the kernel ... this is a WEXT compatibility layer.

best ... khay
