I’m using either the Techkey 1200 AC, or Panda PAU 09 USB adapters on my Xfinity system - but said adapters are only able to see 2.4 Ghz network - not the 5 Ghz network.
On the 2.4 Ghz network, it is only supporting traffic of 14Mbps. But when I use the same adapters on Windows systems, the same distance away from the gateway, I’m easily reach inbound speeds of over 100Mbps - so I don’t think that it is the adapters.
Also, switching to Ethernet improves the speed considerably, with speeds exceeding 400Mbps inbound.
The driver that I picked up from Techkey site doesn’t have a way to install it (the “makefile” that they reference in their user guide isn’t part of zip file that they provided) - and the Panda website doesn’t have a Linux driver for the PAU 09).
Currently I’m unsure on how to proceed here, as checking online (YouTube, and other reference sites) either don’t seem to have much information on installing drivers for Rocky - or only reference installing upon Debian systems…
While I really would like to build some skillset regarding Linux, every step to get this OS to basic operational status seems to be an uphill battle, while slogging through a tar-pit.
System is an HP Envy system, I5 CPU, 16GB Ram, 1TB HD.
Kernel version: 5.14.0-162.12.1.el9_1.0.2.x86_64
USB Adapter: Techkey (1200Mbps), or Panda PAU 09 N600 (1200Mbps)
For the Techkey: rtl88x2BU_WiFi_linux_v188.8.131.52_25643.20171212_COEX20171012-5044
For the Panda PAU 09: there wasn’t one available on the vendor’s site.
