Hw Review: Wireless for Every Arosian!

One of the most annoying things i've had to with aros is its lack of wide range of wireless driver.

Basically there's only two: atheros5000 and rtl81xx.
These are two chips you don't find so easily today and limited to G wifi.

But not every nic based on those chipsets will work: you could buy two different rtl81xx network cards and you would have (maybe) one that works and the other not.

If you're lucky. I have three usb rtl81xx bought on ebay. The first two don't work with aros. The third... sometimes will work, sometimes not.

Today i was in a supermarket buying stuff for my house.

I've found this: "Tele System Wi-lly 0.2 Plus"

Basically it's a very little white box with a microusb port and two rj45.
I read on the box: router wifi, access point, repeater, bridge.

Best of the best it doesn't need external power (is usb powered).

Price: 45 euro.

Not so cheap but it WORKS. And I explain why: you plug a network cable and an usb one to it (there's both of them 10 inches long ones in the box).

If your router supports WPS 2.0 just push the button on your home router.
Otherwise you go in your OWB, fire up the web interface, choose your nework and you are online... (it supports WEP,WPA,WPA2, AES, TKIP, G and N classes)
Obviously it stores your settings in its flash memory. Just plug it and you're online.


You just need a working ethernet card...

I've not discovered the moon but it's totally mobile.

I'm now writing from my acer Aspire 3003 LM. without any chord, power cable or anything other.

And i'm sure it will work even with my mos3.1 powerbook because it's simply a network card...

I love simple things.. And this is not only a simple thing it's simply the fastest wireless aros connection ever made on this earth...

Hi rebaist,

Much better reading. Thank you :)

That is a really nice device. I never knew things like that existed.

It seems indeed a good solution, since it does not require extra drivers.

It would still require an ethernetcard that is supported by AROS not ?

I found a english link here (as i could only find a italian manual/links).

I know it is childish to say but still i couldn't help myself: Yes! finally a willy for my pussy :D

my Icaros box is also connected now to my wifi router through a wifi expander with an ethernet port.

Works nice! No need to run the VM in Debian now to connect to internet with AROS B)

Great news emeck.

Using Aros native is so much nicer (i think).

Glad you were able to find a solution that works for you and welcome into the land of the lounge lizards :D
