Penguin Wireless N USB Adapter TPE-N150USBL
After using this adapter for a few months (18 months ago) I committed out all my
wireless lines in /etc/network/interfaces and stopped using it because it kept
breaking the connection at odd times.
I have to take a trip and this computer goes with me where I'll need to use WiFi and
so I uncommitted out my network interfaces file, loaded the firmware (from the
think penguin help site) plugged in the adapter but nothing happens.
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid <my ssid, a dlink-dir825>
wpa-psk <my passphrase>
I followed these instructions for the latest firmware at the think penguin help
site for this adapter:
rebooted the computer
however..the adapter is still not connected
this after ifup wlan0:
# ifup wlan0
wpa_supplicant: /sbin/wpa_supplicant daemon failed to start
run-parts: /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wpasupplicant exited with return code 1
Failed to bring up wlan0.
any suggestions to what might be missing here?
The thinkpenquin wireless N USB adapter bears a remarkable resemblance to the Alfa
wireless USB adapter: :-)
