I am following this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlHWnKVpygw and i have downloaded the drivers that was sent in the video but i was wondering because i have a different wifi usb ( NETGEAR AC1200 Wi-Fi USB 3.0) if i need different drivers, when i run the "lsusb" command the wifi dongle shows up but when i run the "ifconfig wlan1 up" it just says "ifconfig: SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device" any help?
what's the output -chances are it will be a different driver that's needed
I've read that
our adapters only work with Windows and MAC OS and do not support Linux OS - here
root@OpenWrt:~# lsusb Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0424:7800 Bus 001 Device 010: ID 0846:9053 NETGEAR A6210 Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:2514 Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:2514 Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux 5.4.154 dwc_otg_hcd DWC OTG Controller
do you think i should return this one and try a diffrent one?
see edit above - as of 2015, not supported in Linux (according to NETGEAR)
ah okay thanks for that info i will try a diffrent company
hang on - there is
kmod-mt76 which supports "MT76x2" and this is MT7612 is it not?
kmod-mt76x2u is probably the package to install
can you send the link for that so i can try to see if it works?
opkg install kmod-mt76x2u
oh my bad i will try that
root@OpenWrt:~# opkg install kmod-mt76x2u Unknown package 'kmod-mt76x2u'. Collected errors: * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package kmod-mt76x2u.

Just mark the appropriate response as the solution .... i.e. the one where I suggested which package to install -
