muungwana has gone that EXTRA MILE for you, and this can and probably will help others with the same USB
-He has. A recurrent theme in this Forum is how its members support and share above and beyond the call of merely imparting knowledge. It has been evident in my research on this dongle and its like that the forums of other distro's that have fielded questions on set-up of AR5523 chipset USB things are far inferior in "friendly" compared to ours. IMHO. And except for one or two instances where I have done something completely loopy and sought help, and the Forum have sat and scratched its collective heads in wonderment, I have been fortunate to receive patient and comprehensive assistance that has solved my problem and taught me much. I keep refering to it and it is a shame that it has been archived, but Joble's epic 31
page sort-out of the initial install must rank high on the All-Star list. It is unlikely that anyone else will have a working example of this dongle plumbed up to a PCLinuxOS box but the knowledge Muungwana has imparted will be portable and useful to many.
Muungwana: rc.local has been modified and now I need to go find a coffee shop with a connection to try it out. Might post a PM once done, just to close off. Meanwhile; High Five, job well done. You, sir, are a legend.
Good luck with the Tosh! Nice bit 'o gear.
