Some time ago I bought extremely quiet Shuttle XS35 V2 device to have something “seperate” for my web development work. Right now this awesome fan less device has many purposes. Works as full web dev stack, with Apache, PHP, MySQL, mongoDB, and even Jenkins machine.
Recently I realised that this small ugly device got also WiFi cart into it. Because I’m running out of cables and space in my apartment i figure out, that I could move it easily without plugging into it more cables.
But… of course – Linux doesn’t not recognise this Card Out of the box. So.. here is recipe how to make it work:
02:00.5 Ethernet controller : JMicron Technology Corp. JMC250 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [197b:0250] (rev 03) 03:00.0 Network controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter [10ec:8176] (rev 01)
rpm --import https://www.elrepo.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-elrepo.org rpm -Uvh http://www.elrepo.org/elrepo-release-6-5.el6.elrepo.noarch.rpm
and then installation of missing drivers (for ethernet 2)
yum install kmod-r8192ce yum install kmod-jme reboot
ifconfing wlan0 up
It’s alive !
