    Hello,
    is anyone working on a urtwn driver for FreeBSD (OpenBSD has one)?

    I got a cheap "Skycity, Nano USB wireless 802.11n adapter" from DX (sku.54193), it shows up like this in usbconfig
    Code:
    root@kg-v7# usbconfig -u 0 -a 3 dump_device_desc
    ugen0.3: <product 0x8176 vendor 0x0bda> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) pwr=ON
    
      bLength = 0x0012 
      bDescriptorType = 0x0001 
      bcdUSB = 0x0200 
      bDeviceClass = 0x0000 
      bDeviceSubClass = 0x0000 
      bDeviceProtocol = 0x0000 
      bMaxPacketSize0 = 0x0040 
      idVendor = 0x0bda 
      idProduct = 0x8176 
      bcdDevice = 0x0200 
      iManufacturer = 0x0001  <retrieving string failed>
      iProduct = 0x0002  <retrieving string failed>
      iSerialNumber = 0x0003  <retrieving string failed>
      bNumConfigurations = 0x0001 
    
    But I haven't found a driver yet.

    Hello,
    I need this driver to, for Alfa AWUS036NHR (chipset:Realtek RTL8188RU). Can this driver be ported from OpenBSD? Thanks in advance!

    This won't work with AWUS036NHR (chipset:Realtek RTL8188RU-standard 802.11 b/g/n),only with AWUS036H (Realtek 8187L-standard 802.11 b/g), so I need a driver for the standard n

    There aren't any interested developer to port this driver? I think I have bad luck...

    There aren't a lot of developers on this board. You'll have more luck contacting them on the mailinglists.
     
    Minbari thanks for this.
