[Solved] Motorola USB Network Adapter

Post#1 by Jack » 29 Jan 2016, 04:29

I have a Motorola Model WU830G USB Network Adapter. I know it is old but all I want it for is a backup USB network adapter. Dose anyone have one or know how to set it up?

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Hi Jack
in a terminal type lsusb
If the Device ID is 07b2:7030 you're most likely out of luck

Probable Linux driver - none -
USB ID not yet observed in any mainline kernel
