I am trying to connect to the WiFi using my TP-LINK TL-WN321G wireless card.

After some research on the Internet I've found out that it might not be the case of a missing driver, since there is a file rt73.bin in the /lib/firmware directory.

According to this website it might be the case of 2 missing packages: wireless-tools and rt71w-firmware.

Simultaneously, I've learnt that my problem might go away if I download linux-firmware-nonfree package. I wasn't lucky enough however to find any instructions on how to download it and install it offline.

The build-essential package is showing up from time to time as well in the threads about this problem: https://askubuntu.com/questions/465478/tp-link-tl-wn321g-driver-lubuntu-14-04-install.
Note that I've got nor wlan0 neither ipconfig programs installed.

How can I make my wifi card work?

Here are some additional links I've found during my journey across the Internet:

Extra notes:

  • The system is Sugar on a Stick (Fedora 23) (Sugar 0.106) i686 running as a LiveCD.
