Anyone know about Linux?


Recommended Posts

I am trying to install a TP-Link wifi dongle onto my router control box, it is running LinuxCNC which is pretty much Debian/Wheezy.

All the tutorials and even the instructions included in the TP-Link drivers i downloaded assume a certain amount of prior knowledge and understanding which I am nowhere near.

Some of the issue is that the machine has no network connection so I am trying to do it all locally and nearly every video has shit about updating libraries and shit online which I cannot do.

Any help would be appreciated...

I had a related problem. I bought a usb to eth device something like https://www.trademe.co.nz/computers/networking-modems/network-cards/listing-2849438105.htm

Plugged in, re-installed my OS, and then I had network to make the other bit work OK. Can you take your box to the network to get the WiFi bits working, than come back to the router?

I can plug it in to the lan for setup if I can find a long enough cable..

Are you able to point us to a web page that has the docos that came with the TP-Link?  Or let us know what model it is?

I'm keen to see what they expect you to do.

I have figured out how to get root, I believe I have checked that I have the compiler. There is a chunk of prior knowledge that i just don't have.
