    Setting up wireless


    Hello.

    I am trying to install debian(which i can do) But i need to install my ASUS USB N53 802 wireless card.

    OH, also I don't have a cd rom drive and so i am installing the netinst via usb. I hear that's small and needs an internet connection to be viable.

    If someone could point me in the right direction that would be very helpful, thanks.

    Hello and Welcome!

    So you've already got Debian installed? Or are able to do so?
    If so, follow the instructions in this post. It is a small script that you can download, transfer to the Debian machine via USB key and use to retrieve some important system information.
    Post back with the results of that script, and someone should be able to point you in the right direction.

    In that situation, if possible I would plug in an ethernet cable until I have the OS installed and the wireless card detected.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    Well I installed the first ISO cd not the netinst so I have gnome installed and such. The ethernet cable is possible but it would mean setting up my desktop in the garage so I was hoping there is an alternative.

    If i did connect it to a ethernet cable how would i go about getting the correct driver??

    I am new to linux.

    The only alternative would be to download all packages and dependencies to a USB stick, and transfer them to your Linux computer. (Which is very much a pain in the butt.)

    Connecting with an ethernet cable would be the simplest solution. Instead of moving your computer, maybe you could get hold of a long length of cable?

    Here's your wireless adapter:
    Code:
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 1ea7:0002
    If I'm not mistaken, it's a Realtek chipset.
    Odd that it's not being recognized...
    What kernel version do you have? Post the output of uname -a.

    That would be a 250 foot cable okay I will just move it. Should I reinstall debian with the netinset install+internet or would the first iso cd image be just as good?

    Also when i installed it via vmware it uses e1000 driver for the wireless card does that mean anything?

    Reinstalling would not really be necessary, but I would personally do so. And the first CD ISO should do you nicely.

    Not really... only because a VM connects with virtual hardware, so it doesn't utilize the same drivers that a physical installation would use. I had a VM installation going, and it also used the e1000, while my laptop had a Broadcom chipset.
