Hi Redhat,

I bought new laptop. It is powered by Core i7 and new wifi card. But there is no LAN Port. I have checked with RHEL8.4 ISO (Exam) (Fedora 33, I guess), the network card is not detected. But I have checked with TP Link USB Wifi card, It is working. Can I use USB Wifi card for the exam ? Please confirm here

 

Thanks,

HHH.

yes, a simple USB to WIFI adapter is allowed
Consider using USB to Ethernet adapter for a usbtowifi.pngmore reliable connection

If we are going that far, I would recommend a USB docking station while we are at it.

I think the external dock is allowed if needed to achieve the necessary connectivity to the required devices and hook up to the network. However, some external docks plugged into the USB-C ports use Thunderbolt protocols and there may be issues. So basic USB to SOMETHING adapters are better. The number of USB ports may also be multiplied by a USB HUB.

Hi Rh,

I have passed the exam. However I faced the flapping issuec with the usb wifi adapter. The best advice use built-in wifi module or USB to Lan Converters.

Hello, I'm going through my compatibility test; however, since I'm not using wired ethernet due to the location of my ethernet outlets, would I still be able to configure my network or I'll have to move to a location with the ethernet adapter?

Trying to configure the network, and I'm unable to turn on the internet on the system because apparently "The ethernet is unplugged". That's the message I'm getting and the button is grayed out.

Wired ethernet is a recommendation (not a requirement) as it provides the best connection estability for the exams.

If your wifi adapter is not recognized (you should see multiple adapters, or an adapter under the Wifi settings), you'll probably need to use the wired connection.

Hope this clarifies.

My laptop microphone does not work . Do we really need microphone to work or we allow to attach external speaker using USB ?

If you look at the video about remote exam, you are allowed to add a microphone and other external audio equipment.
