Subject description: In Dpup Stretch 7.5 CE
 

I need a pet for this nano wireless usb.
I mainly need it for Dpup Stretch 7.5 CE

As I am switching to Vodaphone Broadband 4G, here in Sydney
until the NBN comes along. I have bought this for a desktop.

I just loathe paying the sh.ts at Telstra for a landline that I never use
because of every Indian scammer ringing me up.
Also they keep sticking the price up to give me the crummy ADSL2 speed
that I get, so I am cutting it right off.

Unfortunately I have to give up TPG for a year.
Some people hate them but MR Teoh at TPG is one of the smartest
blokes in Telecommunications in Australia.
And has saved me thousands over the course of 20 years.

I may have to switch Puppies but I really like Stretch
as it works on many PCs and laptops.

There might be hope yet for Stretch.

My TP -Link TL- WN725N I bought killed the Win 7
integrated sound on my other desktop.
Took a few hours to fix it...headphones worked, not speakers.

I did all sorts of stuf to cheat it, disabling the bios, re-enables bios sound,
finally removed all Audio drivers, rebooted and MS reinstalled the drivers
and she worketh.

So I got a message from Semme about my other wireless issue,
>> usb Simplecom, and while replying in Bionic 64,
I changed my Simplecom usb to the TP Link branded wifi,

after I restarted from Xorg >> typed xwin, plugged it in
and it showed up as >>> wireless r8188eu pci:

So I got one working at least.
I might copy the Firmware files and do a cheat.
Hey! I've got to try, mightn't work...diferent Kellogs kernels?????

Posting now, and of course I took out the Lan cable first.

Chris.

Solved >>> Stretch does work with TP-LINK TL-WN725N.

As stated I changed the Nano usb to this Asus desktop
and it worked in Bionic Pup 64.

So I've just booted Stretch and it works.

I should have switched the USB wifis at the start to the other computer..

Dumb happens....and grrrr! ... I hate being wrong.

Now...to fix up the Simplesh.t adapter.
I had to buy 2 different brands as they only had i TP-Link left.

TP-Link was only $13.00 Au, the other was a littl;e bit more.more.

Thanks to everyone that may have looked at this post.

Chris.
