Hiya everyone,

I have been trying to get this new USB WLAN-adapter working, but it keeps telling me that it wants some firmware that I don't know about:

Well, I do remember slh wrote something about that firmware, but wasn't he saying that the new firmware wasn't needed anymore?

Many thanks for any hints about how and where to retrieve that firmware.

How about believing the kernel's message and re-reading the referred post?

Oh dear,

looks like I actually didn't see the forest for the trees. Smile
Sorry for that...
Seems fine now and I can do some more testing tomorrow.
Thank you very much.
