Free software wifi adapter
17

Hi, I am looking for a usb and/or pcie adapter that will work with gnu/linux-libre & bsds out of the box. I found this, https://www.thinkpenguin.com/gnu-linux/penguin-wireless-n-usb-adapter-gnu-linux-tpe-n150usb. Does anyone have any other recommendations? Thanks!

I would check in https://h-node.org

ThinkPenguin is famous for being expensive.

In Media Markt, I could buy an AC600 Nano USB Wi-Fi Adapter which worked with Linux-Libre.

Ok, I ended up buying a Wireless access point to connect to wifi and just plug in the ethernet, so it works on any os. Thanks!

Panda products are also worth a look. Be sure you watch prices though, some of their models are EXCESSIVELY overpriced. I had to return one of these “higher end” products as their lower end model gave me better experiences.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
