Hi,

I've setup a small media box (using a Raspberry Pi) for my television, connected to my network by an Edimax EW-7811UN USB micro-adapter (uses rtl8188cus chipset/driver). The kernel driver works well, but the device is at the extremity of my AP's range and drops out often (but only for seconds at a time). This tends to make a lot of streaming and download operations fail.

I recall an experimental "Ethernet team driver" recently entering the kernel, which combines two connections. I wonder if this, with a second identical adapter, might solve the problem?

SO I just wondered if anyone has played about with this driver, how it performs, whether it actually works for wireless connections at all, and how easy it is to setup and manage. Any experience would be of interest.

Thanks in advance!
