NOTE: This script has been tested in Canaima GNU / Linux 3.0 (Debian Squeeze) but in theory should be valid for most distributions.
Some time ago I’ve been fighting with linux and my WiFi antenna TP-LINK TL-WN722N, because every time I update the kernel or do a fresh install of Linux wifi is disabled because the kernel does not have the drivers.
That is why I decided to automate the process and also help those who have the same problem as me with this antenna.
I developed a small console program that does all the installation process and all you have to do is insert the antenna once the process end. It is noteworthy that I have developed in the English language as it may be useful not only to Spanish-speaking users but also from other parts of the planet.
The source code of the program is totally free and you can find here:
If you do not use git or just want to download a zipped package, use this link:
To execute, just unzip the package you downloaded and into the console go to the unzipped folder. Then you give the script execute permissions and run “install.sh” as root and the party should begin … example:
$ cd unzipped_folder_name $ chmod +x ./install.sh $ su root -c ./install.sh
If you have any problems, suggestions or comments i will be grateful to receive it.
I hope you find it useful.
