The reason I must try to use the Pi as a Wi-Fi adapter rather than the one I currently use for Windows 10 (Netgear A6200) is not even close to compatible with GNU/Linux or *BSD. Ubuntu will recognize my access to the internet when I went though two days of installing different drivers for the A6200, and after logging in I would need to issue the following commands to see networks:
$ sudo depmod -a
$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
$ sudo service network-manager restart
How I tried fixing it
- I setup the Raspberry Pi to be a router because my current router only supports
WPA-WPA2(PSK)and Ubuntu will not connect to that.
- Ubuntu will connect to the Raspberry Pi Wifi which is secured with WPA only.
- The Pi is 100% able to connect to the secured (main) network with WPA-WPA2(PSK).
- Due to needing to connect to the Pi, on Ubuntu when I do finally get it to connect I am only getting ~10-39Mbps whereas when connected to the main network on the Pi I can get 100Mbps.
- Using the A6210 Driver found on Github
Can I use the raspberry pi 3 model B as a USB wifi adapter that plugs directly into my computer (and have it work "out-of-the-box")? If so, how do I tell Ubuntu and FreeBSD to use the adapter that is located on the Pi?
