edimax EW-7811Un USB failed to connect
Open, NormalPublic



I just installed the PureOS on Dell Inspiron 5000 series.
The Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 3160 adapter failed to work (non-free so it wouldn't work)
Then I found that edimax EW-7811Un USB working fine for some free distributions.

  • Tried to update and upgrade the PureOS, but I still cannn't connect to any network that the adapter able see.
  • Tried to turn off power management > # Disable power management > options 8192cu rtw_power_mgnt=0 rtw_enusbss=0

I don't what to buy the expensive free software adapter.

Moreover, I didn't find how to install the driver locally, which could be the issue.

Please let me know what else could be done.
In case of any debug will be required, just let me know.

Best regards,
