Wireless Dongle installation . . . .

Hello Korora , today i have installed the korora OS . . .but how to enable the wireless adapter or how to install the driver .. i am using dlink DWA-131 nano dongle .. waiting for your reply .. help me . .

You need to identify what chip your dongle is using. Plug the dongle into the system and then run dmesg. The last few lines will show the details of the dongle. Post them here and we should be able to identify the wifi chip.

[  365.463691] usb 2-1.6: Product: Wireless N Nano USB Adapter
[  365.463693] usb 2-1.6: Manufacturer: Realtek
[  365.463695] usb 2-1.6: SerialNumber: 00e04c000001

Okay that tells us it is a Realtek chip which isn't a surprise, they are common in plugin devices but Realtek's support of Linux is poor. You will need to get the actual chip model by typing lspci | grep Realtek. then do a search for that model, it will probably be RTL8???, and Fedora. You can search on here for the model number too as a few people have already asked about Realtek. If you can't find anything useful post the model number here.

Is your system up to date? Drivers are improving all the time and having the latest kernel etc. may help.

BTW I edited your post to put the output in a code box so it could be read. Click on the question mark above the reply box for the format options or see the syntax section here for the common ones.

Forget Dlink, that is just the brand on the outside. You need to know what the chip in it is.

Was the dongle plugged in when you ran the lspci command? As that model number you quoted says ethernet. You need the wireless card info. Without that you won't know which driver you need.

Once again I had to edit your post so it could be read. Please put output like this in a code box, it is not possible to read it if you don't.

There is no wifi in that list so either it isn't plugged in or it isn't working. Have you tried it on another machine or OS?

yes dear its working fine on windows operating system .. if it is possible can you please take it on VNC ..... lspci | grep Realtek = Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 06)

That is the ethernet card not the wifi. Try a different command lsusb | grep Realtek
