Wireless problem

Post by adammuelta » Tue Oct 16, 2018 3:17 pm

I have a Hp Omen 15 laptop and ROS does not have wireless driver for it. I need a browser on the Live CD and a recognizeable wireless driver for my laptop. I need to get on internet.

Thanks.

This is not likely to work. That laptop was released July of this year. In order to have even a hope that your wireless would work, it needs to have Windows XP drivers. Those certainly don't exist for your hardware.

Here's a list (updated a year ago) of tested wireless hardware: https://reactos.org/wiki/Supported_Hard ... work_cards

Yes, this is why I wish the Termite project would make more progress. Then you can synthesize an XP driver from a newer driver, or a Linux driver from a Windows driver, etc. We would likely not use such code (licensing and readability), but end users could make older drivers from newer ones. Any licensing hurdle could be overcome by running Termite on Linux (uncontested code) or other open source drivers, but even if it creates a usable XP driver, there is still the issue with it being machine created and likely hard to read/follow.
