Possible to add 5GHz to the NANO through USB?


Recommended Posts

I'm new to the WiFi Pineapple (got mine a couple days ago) and decided to get the NANO.

When buying it, I knew it didn't support 5GHz (which is fine, but most people use 5GHz instead of 2.4GHz now) but I'm curious if it's possible to add 5GHz support to it through the USB port.

If anyone know if you can do this (some tips/tricks would be nice also) please do let me know.

Well I've got a Racksoy Ralink 5370 little USB dongle (which I'm sure is the same as what you get with the elite version) which works fine.

But I've also got a TP-LINK Archer T2UH AC600 which is dual-band but doesn't seem to even be picked up by the NANO. I've tested this on 3 PC's and it works on all, so it's not a problem with the device itself.

"iwconfig" doesn't even show up the TP-LINK but it'll show up the Ralink as wlan2.


Any advice?

Probably going to have to compile a driver.  It's not natively supported in linux yet either.

The problem with that is I run out of storage space on my NANO when I go to compile their driver.
