wifi support

Hi, thanks for the reply. Openelec now supports these dongles and its supposed to work without inserting stuff in the squashed file system. In fact it does work, its just that it needs to be recompiled against the updated linux version. I managed to force the rebuild by deleting the "build"...

Downgraded to 11812 still not working. Went back to 11797 and its OK. So I guess something occurred between ...

Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds

According to this post on the OpenELEC forums they added more wireless adapter support. As my internet at home is still off I haven't had chance to test any of the latest images.
