I just got 4 usb 802.11n nics, and they were not recognized by fedora
Windows 10 did seem to have no problems, and they are rtl8192eu.
Did find a page that talked about getting them to work, but the install script
failed with errors. First Error was about __DATE__ and __TIME__ macros,
so found an option to add to the Makefile to ignore that.
The second error involved strnicmp issues, and eventually found a reference
to replace that with strncasecmp. With that change the script does seem to
complete. First time it didn't seem to work, but then the wlassistant was able
to see the device and was able to connect to a wireless hub.
Wondering if someone knows of a better solution?
Some good news (kernel 4.6?) posted on linux-wireless list:
From: Jes Sorensen
This is a small set of changes to the rtl8xxxu driver which cleans up
the naming of the TX data descriptors, and also prepares for further
for adding rtl8192eu support.
If you're interested, i can upload this somewhere or send it by email.
