    The i915 driver in 3.8-rc2 has a bug. There is a fix, but if you use that
    driver, I would wait for -rc3. If you are interested, the thread starts at
    http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/li...1.0/00808.html.

    All my wireless devices work with 3.8-rc2 and -rc3. What one do you have? The
    wireless line from '/sbin/lspci -nn' will be sufficient.

    The probable cause of it not working is that the driver was not loaded when you
    generated the turbo-mode configuration; therefore, that driver was not included
    in the kernel. If that is the case, you will need to run 'make xconfig' and add
    the necessary driver.

    The correct driver for USB ID 0846:9030 is ath9k_htc.

    Well got my PC upgraded to kernel 3.8-rc3 today. Seems to be working OK and nothing new to report. Here is a link to what Linus had to say on the subject:

    https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/1/9/791

    I have nVIDIA working with the native built-in support. I have VirtualBox 4.2.6 working just fine. Really, nothing out of the ordinary seems to come to the top.

    I do have a question for Larry. Do you think support for the Wifi Device called "ID 0846:9011 NetGear, Inc. WNDA3100v2 802.11abgn [Broadcom BCM4323]", a usb Wireless-N Dual Band adapter, will ever happen in the Linux kernel? Unlike other Broadcom wireless devices using similar numbers, no Linux driver has been released and no support from the kernel so far. I just am wondering if I should toss this in the garbage or not? Oddly, one day just playing around with VirtualBox and Win7 in a VM., I actually had it work for Windows. It seems kind a strange thing to me to get to work that way as a pass through USB device.

    Thank You,

    I once acquired a BCM4323 while I was trying for a device with a particular
    Realtek chip. It was a V1 vs V2 situation. When I asked the Broadcom guys if a
    driver would be available, the reply was "This chip requires a different driver
    model (basically a split stack between host and dongle). This model is being
    abandoned for newer chips so we decided not to support it in mainline linux.".

    The b43 wiki says you need to use ndiswrapper and a Windows driver with it. I
    would suggest you sell yours on Ebay for $15, or so, but be sure to mention that
    it is only for Windows.

    I have used a number of my USB devices in pass-through mode in a VM. Nothing in
    USB is particularly time critical, thus it works.

    Thanks so much for the insight on the BCM4323. I have had it for a while and I may just hand off to a Windows user at work. I saw you mention a chipset for wireless you though worked well. Since I mainly work with desktops on my own, what wireless add-in card works best with Linux in your opinion? I have only purched one wireless device that worked with Linux out of the box and it was a ASUS PCE-N13, a low profile PCIe add-in card with two antennas. It works OK as I used it in a small profile PC I built for my disabled wife. It works OK, but I had to upgrade my wireless router to stream video to the PC. I just don't buy enough wireless stuff to be much of a wiz at getting something good. Most things that come with wireless are laptops and the like and you don't get to chose what you get with them. As always, I value your opinion very highly on this subject.

    I don't have much experience with add-in cards as my driver development is with
    the mini-PCIe cards of the type used in laptops, and USB devices.

    It is hard to know what chip is in the cards without having one in hand;
    however, the cards below seem to have Atheros chips, and should be supported by
    Linux with no problems.

    D-Link Xtreme N DWA-556
    TP-Link TL-WN781ND N150

    I have a TP-LINK TL-WN722N (USB device) that is also in the N150 group, and
    works extremely well.
