Review of Linux Compatibility

The Etekcity 05-BL-LW05-AR5-Etek is a USB WiFi adapter following the IEEE 802.11n standard and supporting transmission rates up to 150Mbps. The stick bases on the Realtek RTL8188 chipset but has the USB Device ID 8176 nonetheless.

A Linux driver for the RTL8192CU chipset can be downloaded from the Realtek homepage. There, one can download the file RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_v4.0.2_9000.20130911, which creates the kernel module 8192cu during compilation.
