Mochabin NXP 9089

I just got the Mochabin with the NXP wifi adapter. Did anyone got the NXP running?


Given how the story with mwlwifi panned out, I'd forget about that.

Forget about that outside of Globalscales Ubuntu, it was made clear to them that NXP cards are not acceptable for open source as there are no drivers

If NXP is a no-go (I have no experience with them myself so have nothing to add about them), then you might consider picking up something based on a MediaTek 7915. MediaTek has pretty good Linux support in general. I use AsiaRF boards and like them. Your choices with them are

  • AW7915-NP1, 4T4R AX dual band, but not DBDC, so you're on one band at a time.
  • AW7915-NPD, 2T2R AX DBDC board

I have the former and like it a lot, but it's not DBDC. I don't have the latter, but I do have AsiaRF's DBDC 7615 board. I had a lot of trouble in the beginning getting DBDC to work stably, but now have it going pretty well.

Thank you very much for your insights. I am currently mapping all the options, since I now have Mochabin at my table.
