Review of Linux Compatibility

Several versions of AVM Fritz!WLAN sticks exist so please be careful to not mix them up. This version of the AVM Fritz!WLAN is a USB 2.0 stick with USB ID 057c:6201

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 057c:6201 AVM GmbH AVM Fritz!WLAN v1.1 [Texas Instruments TNETW1450]

It supports WiFi connections according to 802.11g++ standard.

Although the stick is automatically recognized:

usb 1-1: new high-speed USB device number 2 using xhci_hcd
usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=057c, idProduct=6201
usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=3, Product=2, SerialNumber=1
usb 1-1: Product: WLAN USB Device
usb 1-1: Manufacturer: AVM GmbH
usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 001xxxxxxxx
usb 1-1: reset high-speed USB device number 2 using xhci_hcd

There are no drivers included in the Linux kernel for this WiFi stick due to GPL violations. The last driver version provided by AVM does not be compile under recent kernel versions any longer. The only solution if you are stuck with this stick under Linux is to use Ndiswrapper. A detailed configuration description can be found (in German) at Ubuntuusers.de.
