    Non-Linux wireless card


    I have been trying desperately over the last few days to set up my Linksys wpc54g wireless card on my laptop. Unfortunately there are no linux drivers for the card. Any help in figuring out how to set the card up would be appreciated(newbie steps please). Prefferably in Debian.

    I think that ndiswrapper may just work. Try going to ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net and download the tarball. It will include a install file. Good Luck! I've been having trouble with my PCI card, just in case I do get a solution look here, http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5&pagenumber=1

    I was also given these two links:
    http://fedoranews.org/contributors/e_a_graham_jr/ndis/
    http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.p...orum_id=323168

    Good luck again!

    No, I have the same PCMCIA card, and I tried ndiswrapper, no dice.
    Doesn't work. (Yes, the latest version.) Not to mention it's a pain to try, if you're a newbie like me. I spent 4 hours reading MAN pages and forum posts to get ndiswrapper to MAKE and INSTALL right yesterday. A lot of trouble for nothing. Get another card or shell out 30 bucks for the other software to make it work.


    **I just found this** http://www.linux-wlan.org/ ** I will have to poke around with it, as I'm learning linux, too. but this might work. As for Linuxant, forgeddaboutit --- Linksys products aren't supported at all by their loader.

    What softtware is this where is it from? that makes the linksys wpc54g work?
    I'll pay the thirty if it realy makes it work! i have 3 of them from the time befor linux

    OK found it linuxant.com has the driver and it is free for 30 days then $20 for life. So see if it works first

    Also i just discovered that the chipset in the linksys cards is the broadcom chipset and the linuxant driver might not work with this card in older machines

    Also i am still trying to get my nic open to confirm that it uses the broadcom chipset
    Ok i got mine open without breaking it and the chip is broadcom and it is:
    • BROADCOM
      BCM4306KFB
      TT0314 P20
      71172 S

    Also my nic is from when they first came out probably 1.5 years old

    Also please sign this patittion for drivers for this chipset though the partition is not for the exact chipset it is of the same family the BCM43xx familyhttp://www.PetitionOnline.com/BCM4301/
