Is there are version available for this driver for the SG-1000 running 11.2-RELEASE-p2?
Using this driver I'm getting this on boot:
don't know how to load module '/boot/kernel/if_re.ko'
Does it need to be completely recompiled for 11.2?

The SG-1000 is ARM-based. I've only compiled for x86. Now that 2.4.4 is released, I'm going to be re-compiling this driver. If I can figure out how to cross-compile for ARM, I will attempt to. Are you sure the SG-1000 uses Realtek NICs though? I'm not familiar with it. I pulled up the product page but it didn't seem to say what chipset the NICs are.

Yeah, that's not the re(4) driver in case you hadn't realised. The SG-1000 NIC is part of the SoC from TI.
It's a USB wifi device you have there. We'd need to see the USB vendor and device IDs to know more.

@stephenw10 Yeah, I've given up on trying to find a compatible USB wifi adapter only to still have limited range and flakiness anyways. Easier to go the route of a USB ethernet adapter, which has better support and then I'll use an external AP.
