Re: ASUS USB-AC56 (RTL8812AU/RTL8821AU) Driver compile fails

I just try to compile the driver for kernel 4.11.6-v7+ and...failed :lol:

Do you have updated driver dear MrEngman :?:

PS : I use this kernel because an other dongle, em28xx-Hauppauge-DualHD TV tuner, need a kernel patch that works on this kernel version only (from what I understand)

Re: Any hardware mod on PI Zero W to reduce power?

I did gain some more mA by powering it @3.3V instead of 5V but can I go further by switching the voltage regulator by an other type? Or maybe does this mod only for older PIs? That was only for early model RPis which used linear voltage regulators. Now they are switching types. Well. Thanks a lot, ...

Any hardware mod on PI Zero W to reduce power?

Hi, I was wondering if there was any hardware mod to do on the PI Zero W to reduce power consumption. I have seen a lot of comments over the net talking about removing the voltage regulator for something more efficient. Of course I have already slim down everything that was possible in software : un...

yes I use your script since I own the dongle ;) but I have always got this disconnect issue.

Can all things done on Arduino be done instead on a PI3 ?

Sorry if this question sounds stupid to some :? but when I see a youtube video for example demonstrating something done on an Arduino, can it allways been done also on a Raspberry?

Or may Arduino has specific hardware?
