urtwn driver in FreeBSD?

Postby tingo » 25 Feb 2011, 18:58

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: Select all
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.
