Wireless problems

So, I couldn't get it to like my RTL8188CE, so I bought one of these: https://www.thinkpenguin.com/gnu-linux/ … sb-adapter

I mean, that's got to work, right?

No. No, it doesn't.

Arch can't find the firmware. Should I just complete the arch installation with a wired connection, or is there someway to get the firmware installed now?

Re: Wireless problems

Direct link to the firmware file: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Dri … l9170-1.fw

Simply download that to an usb stick, then copy it into /usr/lib/firmware when in the live system. Then plug in the wifi adapter and it will work.
