Hi !
I have followed one of yours posts on how to install wifi adapter.
Can you please check the download link on dropbox because i can not download any of the files listed in your posts.

I always get message that the file is missing..

Best regards !

The drivers I compile were installed on Dropbox but they have made a major change to their web site and its really screwed things up. Really annoying to say the least so I have moved the drivers to a new site. You will need to download and install a new script to use the new site.

Download and install the new version of the script with commands

Code: Select all

sudo wget http://www.fars-robotics.net/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
The command

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi -h
will show details on using it.

To install the driver on your current kernel you should just need to run command

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi
This will select the driver you need and automatically download and install it.

Once you get WiFi working, reconnect after reboot should happen automagically, as long as your AP is within range of your Raspberry.
