TP-Link TL-WN725N version 2 on Raspberry Pi

El TP-Link TL-WN725N es un dispositivo USB Wifi que sirve para cualquier tipo de computadora. La versión 1 de este producto funciona con el kernel 3.6 de la Raspberry Pi sin problemas. Sin embargo, la versión 2 no. Para hacerla funcionar en Pidora, hay compilar el modulo en el ultimo kernel o simplemente pueden bajar el que yo compile:

wget https://mkredercom.files.wordpress.com/8188eu.ko.gz
gzip -d 8188eu.ko.gz
install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
depmod -a
modprobe 8188eu

MD5Sum: 7836769f630f521f6e062a6cca889d07

He contactado al equipo de #pidora en Freenode para pedir que lo agreguen al Remix.

The TP-Link TL-WN725N is a small USB Wifi adapter that can be used on any type of computer. The version 1 of this product works out of the box with the 3.6 Raspberry Pi kernel but the version 2 does not. In order to make it work on Pidora you need to build the module with the latest Pidora kernel or you can just download the module I built:

wget https://mkredercom.files.wordpress.com/8188eu.ko.gz
gzip -d 8188eu.ko.gz
install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
depmod -a
modprobe 8188eu

MD5Sum: 7836769f630f521f6e062a6cca889d07

I also contacted the #Pidora maintainers on Freenode to request if they can add it to the Remix.
