I recently replaced some parts in my desktop to get it working again, so I decided to install Silverblue on it. Been running it on my laptop for a while and I love it!
Problem is, the way things are laid out currently I can’t really get it hooked up to Ethernet and there is no built in wifi currently. I have an Asus AC1200 wifi dongle (shows up in
ASUSTek Computer, Inc. 802.11ac NIC) and was trying to make it work, but no success so far. I’ve tried installing b43-firmware and kmod-wl, not sure if either one would’ve worked but they were the only option I found that would work with Silverblue’s immutable OS.
For now I can get Internet on that machine by plugging in my laptop with an ethernet cord and sharing its wifi, but this is not ideal. Is there any way to make the dongle work or should I just look into buying an PCI wifi card that will work out of the box?
