Hardware List: Compatible wireless network adapters (extern)

To expand our hardware list, i would be interested to know which wlan/wifi adapters are supported/or not supported.

Of course, this only makes sense if you run Haiku directly on hardware.

Please provide the following information:

Manufacturer: e.g. Intel
Model: e.g. ipro1011
Connection: e.g. USB
Haiku hrev number you use this on
Note: Information necessary for operation

Please don’t have any discussions about it here, only post hardware

I can confirm that my WiFi USB Adapter Edimax EW-7612UAn V2 works fine.
Great job @waddlesplash :+1:

Although the speed was low, I could browse the internet.
The low data rate could be my WiFi connection, since my WiFi router is far, far away from my Haiku box and I usually use Ethernet connection at this point.

The usb wifi dongle is found, I can see the list of nearby wifi networks. Almost all wifi networks available are shown, except my own! It seems that SSIDs with stronger signal are ommited.

After a couple of reboots and adding my mobile phone as hotspot, my SSIDs appeared. But I repeatedly got error, wrong password (which I triple checked).
WPA2, my setting. wpa_supplicant issue perhaps?

For the time being I’m not able to connect.

A list of current device IDs supported by network drivers is available here: haiku-current.list\korli\3rdparty - haiku - Haiku's main repository

Hello Korli,
nice list, but I am too dumb to understand it!
I cannot find my Ralinkwifi (RT2573) rev.0x2573a RF: RT2528

How to use this list?
Which column is what?
Sorry taking your time!

EDIT: (Should it work?)

wouldn’t it be easier to make a small application that scan with listdev and prompts user with a quick survey and reports back to haiku depot ??


The first two numbers from the list korli linked are: Vendor ID, and Product ID.

listdev and/or listusb should allow you to find the corresponding values for your hardware.

Hello BiPolar,
found the Vendor and the Product ID:

It is a 0db0:6877 Micro Star International RT2573 ver.0001 internal usb card!
So it is not on Korli’s list.

Manufacturer: Intel
Model: Intel Corporation Wireless 3160 [8086:08b3] (rev 83)
Connection: PCI
Haiku hrev: 57672
Note: Speed is low and latency sometimes it’s very high, but I’ve been able to connect to a network and load haiku-os.org. I also connected to a “video streaming” on mediaplayer and it worked OK.
