Please add any discussion on the driver for the AE1000 usb wifi adapter here.

Do I understand correctly that the intent is to add a kernel module that is not accepted upstream?--Mitr 16:01, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Yes, but it is worth noting that the AE1000usb was not at all supported at the time I was packaging this driver. At some point recently in an update the rt2800usb driver was updated to include the pci device id and now recognizes this device. This might be a dead topic now. -- David Dreggors 04:26, Tue March 13 2012 (UTC)
