    Hmm...

    Looking at the Linksys website, the only thing close is the WUSB11:

    Long URL


    If that's it, then according to the ndiswrapper site, you need to do the following:

    - You need to use the driver from:

    ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/WUSB11v4_08272004.exe

    Open that exe and grab the inf and sys files. The inf file is called WUSB11v4.inf


    - If this won't work, you need to grab the 2005-08-21 snapshot of ndiswrapper, compile it manually, and use that.


    Give that a shot.

    I tried it out and I get the same error. I dont think it does support my card. Is there a card list for MadWifi as well? I would like to see if my card is compatible with that as well.

    plug in the nic then as root type
    Code:
    lsusb
    and paste the output for the nic since we use chipsets not model #'s to figure out what driver is needed

    Code:
    Bus 003 Device 003: ID 077b:2219 Linksys WUSB11 V2.6 802.11b Adapter
    Thats the snippet from lsusb that concerns my adapter.

    This version of the nic uses the 'Amtel' chipset and is supported natively in the kernel ....no ndiswrapper or madwifi needed

    I built it in as a module, but it sitll doesn't seemt o be working. I have my computer check for hot and cold plugged USB devices at boot but I still cant connect to the network.

    EDIT: Do i have to modprobe something to get it to work?

    Have you modprobed it?

    Unfortunately, I don't see a module name in the kernel config, so I'm not sure what it is. Personally, I'd just build it right into the kernel.

    Im pretty sure there is something more I have to do yo the module, but I cant find anything on enabling them after you build them into the kernel.
