    Re: Will this long range USB wifi adapter work well with Ubuntu?

    My security is already set to WPA2-AES with the CCMP thing, and I set IPv6 to "Ignore."

    Here are the outputs of iwconfig, lsusb, lsmod, sudo iwlist scan, ifconfig -a,
    and route -n.


    Code:
    iwconfig
    
    lo        no wireless extensions.

    Re: Will this long range USB wifi adapter work well with Ubuntu?

    Deactivate the power management:

    Code:
    sudo iwconfig wlan1 power off

    The power management is now set to off, and I will be testing the signal to see if it's any better.

    I've been testing the signal, but it still isn't strong enough. Sometimes it can overcome all the interference, but usually it can't. The TV pretty much kills it.
    I'm using a wired connection right now, and I'll probably use the USB wifi adapter for something else.

    You can deactivate IPv6 in the NM-applet.
