use USB WiFi dongle on TF201
one user ask if there is a method for using USB WiFi dongle on TF201, I've a working WG111v3 [RTL8187] which i use for connect when signal is weak, sniffing wifi packets , dump WPA handshakes and make some love ;P.
however i get all this working on TF201 by compile the kernel modules.
because not all users have a chroot with a stock kernel tree, i think to realease a package with all these modules inside.
so, for extract the modules from the package :
tar xzf wifi_ko.tar.gz -C path/to/
tar xjf wifi_ko.tar.bz2 -C path/to/
and all you have to do for use the wifi dongle is:
1) open termianl emulator
3) insmod path/to/module.ko
4) ifconfig wlan1 up
5) wpa_supplicant -i wlan1 -c /path/to/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
6) dhcpcd wlan1
i suppose that the new device is wlan1.
the step 5 and 6 is for connecting to a wireless Access Point, but if you use the dongle for other purposes just skip these.
I make these modules with debug information, so, if you have some problem look at `dmesg | grep "$module" ' output.
for a working wpa_supplicant.conf file take the /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf and remove extra information such as device-id and other android stuff.
Here you are the packages: ( if someone want to upload to another hoster will be better )
Hope this help.
( sorry for my doggish english , i will update it soon
