    WLAN - Problem in Ubuntu - how to disable build in driver


    I have a problem with the WLAN driver in Ubuntu, for my laptop.


    The "N-Mode" 150 Mpbs needs to be disabled to work with 54 Mbps because I have connection problems. But this doesn´t work with this driver.

    Is it possible to disable/uninstall it and to install the driver from the vendor directly? ""

    Or are there other solutions? Is this a known issue on ubuntu?

    Please tell me how.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    This may be a problem, but not insurmountable.

    Blacklist the original driver. See /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf - then install the new driver. If they have equal names, then you may need to either remove the original driver (if it is configured to be loadable and not built into the kernel), or reconfigure the kernel (if it is built-in).

    If you need to reconfigure your kernel (download and build from source), we can help you with that. Let us know.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
