OK, so let's go further, just step by step.
As far as I found out, the "old" WL.KO kernelmodule should do its work, but I can't find the sources, I even can't find a way to properly compile it and last but not least, I'm not able to get it loaded though to test its functionality.
Maybe we can start of here? Or shall I upgrade to 7.2?

Due to a pile of Hardware-problems it took me this long before I could give it a swirl, but now that I have it running: Looks Mighty fine! =)
Minus: Not having a SAS/Sata Raid controller the notification on startup about the esas2r-driver not loading might be able to cause some panic in newbs... ;-)
And I get a short list of errors that I don't get the time to read. So far nothing that visibly influences the system.

What's slightly more annoying is the following: Network connection sets up just fine, but as soon as I take so much as a look at the network-manager it disconnects and won't re-connect 'till reboot. What's up with that?

On a side-note: Angband and Egoboo won't work on a bare install, so I think these packages need a stern look.

I have tested these on 64-bit, and they seem to work fine.  However, due to a problem with the 32-bit docker image that was just launched, the 32-bit packages did not get generated.  I'm addressing the problem now and will have the packages re-generated.  After that, these will be moved into patches.

Depends on the adapter and whether there's a Linux driver for it.

I managed to get an ASUS AC-56R USB adapater working over a year ago, but only after doing some extensive research and finding out that the instruction set that comes with the adapter had been totally borked for over a year, and ASUS had yet to fix it. Ended up downloading a fix from git that was developed by another user. Worked OK, but wasn't too stable and I ended up taking it back after a day of use.

Not all USB Wireless adapters have a Linux driver. Do your research before purchasing one.

If you hate the tabs up top and want them like it used to be back in the day, check out Classic Theme Restorer.

How do I go about manually configuring a wireless usb network adapter if, for some reason, I would ever need to do so?
