Installing drivers for other WiFi Adapters

While the WiFi Pineapple has support for MT7612U and MT7601U devices out of the box, you can also install drivers for a wide range of other chipsets, such as other MT76-based devices, ath9k and ath10k devices, and some Realtek dongles.

To find drivers, you can use the Package Manager found in the Web Interface under Modules > Packages. Search for keywords related to the chipset in your adapter.

Please be advised that only adapters based on MT7612U are confirmed to work correctly in all circumstances, and other WiFi adapters may not work or have available drivers at all, or may only work partially or cause unexpected behavior like crashes, reboots, etc. Not all WiFi cards or drivers are equal in capability or performance!

More information about a specific adapter can usually found with resources such as DeviWiki.
