office to another room soon and it would be a real convenience to get a
wifi connection to it. I have a wifi dongle, Airlink101 AWLL5088V2, that
works out of the box on my laptop running a (not very old) current
version of slack 14.2. When I try to use this dongle on my desktop,
which is the box that I'm going to have to move, it is recognized and
the drivers are loaded, and /dev/wlan3 is created, but NetManager
followed by nm--connection-editor does not find it.
I am currently running kernel 4.14.15. I'm tempted to put in a newer
kernel, modules and firmware but who knows what that would do to the
rest of my system. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
