Wireless Adapters

The Panda Ultra 150Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter is working well on a Debian machine running Jessie. To connect to the router, all I had to do was

  • plugin the adapter into a USB port
  • click on the connection editor button in the kde panel, select the network of interest, enter password

and the connection started working immediately.
