Can anyone recommend a 5GHz usb wifi dongle that works out of the box with CentOS?
Tried various Mediatek (0e8d:7610) %(*^ off amazon/ebay, without any luck, so please don’t suggest that.
I’ve used the following successfully on CentOS 7:
TP-LINK – TL-WN722N
I’m currently using it on Ubuntu where lsusb gives this:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0cf3:9271 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR9271 802.11n
No issues whatsoever – an added bonus is that it does monitor mode if you plan on troubleshooting wifi!
I was looking at the wrong information – this one doesn’t do 5Ghz – I mis
-interpreted the output from lspci and lsusb – my internal card is the one that does 5Ghz.
Sorry for the noise!
