I recently installed elementary 0.4 and I haven't downloaded os updates yet. The Edimax EW-7811UN wi-fi usb dongle works right off the bat with elementary.
Problem is, it also used to work with ubuntu, but after a recent kernel update ubuntu would freeze the moment the dongle would try to connect to a wireless signal. I think I read something about that chipset not being compatible with the new kernel anymore.
Ubuntu and elementary both being based on same linux type, I believe, does anybody here know if updated elementary works all-right with this wi-fi usb dongle yet? Are ubuntu and elementary kernel updates related? I'd like to avoid the freezing (and forced restart) siuation if possible.
Thanks a lot
