    Help a poor newbie with a Prism54 device installation issue..


    Disclaimer: I am a complete newbie to Linux

    I'm running Fedora Core 5 and the device is an IOGear Wireless-G USB 2.0 Adapter, Model number GWU513, which should be a Prism54 chipset device.
    I'm told the prism54 driver is natively supported, and modprobe prism54 seems to work since lsmod then shows prism54 in the list of modules.
    lsusb says the card is being detected, but it doesn't seem to be working (ifconfig -a doesn't show either wlan0 or eth1, although the GUI says wlan0 is associated with ndiswrapper, which I had tried earlier) ..and I haven't the faintest idea what to do next.

    Anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    what does dmesg | tail say after you modprobe prism54
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    It just lists a bunch of junk and then says "Loaded prism54 driver, version 1.2", nothing else.

    and by junk I mean several lines of this sort of stuff:
    audit(1152818120.291:14): avc: denied { use } for pid=2615 comm="bluez-pin" name="[7759]" dev=pipefs ino=7759 scontext=root:system_r:bluetooth_helper_t:s0-s0:c0.c255 tcontext=system_u:system_rdm_t:s0-s0:c0.c255 tclass=fd

    EDIT:
    One other thing I noticed, when I plug the card in, dmesg says:
    usb 1-1.3: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 8
    usb 1-1.3: not running at top speed; connect to a high speed hub
    usb 1-1.3: no configuration chosen from 1 choice

    It looks like we'll be using a different USB card now (DWL-G122)..but thanks for taking the time to help. Hopefully we won't have any problems with the new one..but just in case, keep an eye out for another desperate plea from me on Monday haha.
