Summary

  • Model - This is the full device model as noted on the box.
  • Chipset - Chipset vendor name, chipset name, vendor code, and device code. For example, if one was looking for a PCI device:

    lspci -vvnn | grep Network
    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter [10ec:8176] (rev 01)

    It's the 'Realtek', 'RTL8188CE', and '[10ec:8176] (rev 01)'.

  • Driver - For a PCI device:

    lspci -vvnn | grep -A 9 Network | grep Kernel
            Kernel driver in use: rtl8192ce

    It's the 'rtl8192ce'.

  • Works "out of the box"
    • Yes - It works perfectly with no manual modifications, or degraded performance.
    • No - It doesn't work at all, has degraded performance, or requires manual configuration to make it work. Please add a comment to what you had to do to get it to work if this was possible, as well as a URL to an outstanding Launchpad bug report to address the issues encountered.

Use instructions from Ubuntu Wiki. Active scanning network manager causes connection drop.

atmel

Yes

Get the atmel wireless drivers from synaptic (atmelwlandriver-source) if you are having problems. The retractable Xjack antenna makes it worth having! Seems to work fine with Edgy, even VPN (Cisco 3000) and WPA (wpa_supplicant) seem to be no Problem

Yes

Works out of the box on 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) - also with WPA and signal strength detection (install linux-restricted-modules for your kernel if it isn't detected - it uses the madwifi driver).

Tested with WPA, works. Device is not named. Name in nm-applet (network manager) is "Unknown USB Interface" and signal for all AP's are at 100% (not accurate). Name in lsusb is blank. Nevertheless, it works.
