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 http://mkreder.com/files/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 http://mkreder.com/files/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

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

    I was wondering if you still have the file available, and also how you built it for Pidora kernel 3.6.11

      David,

      I am sorry but I’ve just noticed that I have accidentally removed the file some weeks ago. I have no backup of that module so I will try to compile it again if I am able to get a Pi.

      In the meantime you can follow the instruction on the module github:

      https://github.com/liwei/rpi-rtl8188eu

      You will need the Pidora kernel source code from here:

    Matias,
    I am afraid the file you posted link to is no longer accessible. Would you please correct the link to it if it is still available? Thank you very much in advance!
