    Linksys


    Hi,

    Does anyone know where I could get a driver for my Linksys Wireless-G laptop addapter? (it's a wpc54g). I know that Linksys doesn't make them but I thought someone would know where I could get one that someone has made. THanks!

    You might look into a program called NDISWrapper. I've never personally gotten it to work but I'm sure someone could give you some help with it. Good luck.

    Well I'm not sure how I would get that to work, does anyone know of just some drivers? Thanks

    The problem with most Linksys wireless cards is that the people who make the chips they're based on refuse to allow Linux developers to see their specifications, making a Linux driver nearly impossible to design. Programs like NDISWrapper offer a sort of "go-between" by translating the MS Windows drivers into instructions Linux can understand.

    But good luck, I suppose it's possible someone's hacked a driver.
