Edimax EW-7811UAC wireless support


@Dan_Knight any chance of getting support for the Edimax EW-7811UAC wireless USB adaptor. I can compile the driver but everytime I update the driver stops working and I need to recompile it. It would be great if this was recognised by the os without the need for this.

Hi Simon,

I suspect when updating DietPi, the apt-get upgrade is also updating the RPi kernel, throwing your compiled module out.

You can prevent this from occurring in the future by running:

apt-mark hold raspberrypi-bootloader raspberrypi-kernel libraspberrypi-bin libraspberrypi0

So in short, run the above, recompile the driver for current kernel, then dietpi-updates should not affect operation.


Ok thanks Dan
