    Net work concerns with Fedora 9,


    Hello,

    I'm on a Inspiron 1525 with Vista, Fedora 9, and a Linksys WUSB54Gv4 USB network adaptor. My concern is that Linux is unable to conect to any networks, But I can conect with Vista no problem so I know the card is working and I am in range of the router.

    On a side note I have no idea what to do with linux, today is my first day with this OS.

    I need somebody to hold my hand to set this up I am a little lost in this new world,

    Thank you,
    Aeris-Skined

    Start out by reading through this post:
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/wir...tml#post589924

    It will ask that you post the output of a few terminal commands, in this thread. This is done to determine the exact chips that the device is using, and then the drivers that those chips use.

    Linksys WUSB54G v4 USB "Ralink chipset"

    I have the drivers but they are on my windows parition and I can't access them from the linux OS

    I did all my homework on the drivers a few days ago =) I just have no idea how to move them over

    When I open the wireless manager in Linux I can view avaible netowrks and so on but when I try to connect it fails with a error message saying "It disconnected"

    You want help, post the output of these commands:
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nn
    or, for USB
    /sbin/lsusb
    
    lsmod
    Windows drivers are for Windows. There are Linux drivers for most wireless chipsets

    Thank you.

    You appear to have two wireless devices. There is a built-in or PCI device;
    Code:
     0b:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection [8086:4222] (rev 02)
    And there is a USB device:
    Code:
     Bus 002 Device 002: ID 13b1:000d Linksys WUSB54G Wireless Adapter
    The PCI wireless should work. All you need to do is download the card firmware, and install it in the /lib/firmware folder. The firmware can be downloaded here:
    http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/iw...e-2.14.1.5.tgz

    Unpack it, and put the file iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode in the /lib/firmware folder (as root). That wireless should now work, may have to reboot to get it to work the first time.

    The USB wireless seems to use the rt2x00 driver, but it is hard to tell. That is the reason I need the lsmod output. Try it again using the full path:
    Code:
    /sbin/lsmod

    now when you say install just copy and paste the driver to that folder /lib/firmware folder?

    as for the usb one I wish to use it for aircrack would like to use the drivers that soupport it.

    Yes, the downloaded file is a compressed package that contains the firmware file (iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode) and two text documents. Copy the iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode file to the /lib/firmware folder.

    This is all assuming that the Linux driver is loading. The lsmod output will give us that info. If it still won't work, try running it as root.

    I'm not sure why you want to bother. You already have drivers loading for your card. If you want the latest drivers, this is the official site:
    Download - Linux Wireless

    The driver modules that are loading are these.

    For the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG card:
    Code:
    Module Size Used by
    iwl3945 145244 0
    And for the Linksys WUSB54G Wireless Adapter
    Code:
    Module Size Used by
    rt2500usb 24192 0
    rt2x00usb 12544 1 rt2500usb
    rt2x00lib 31744 2 rt2500usb,rt2x00usb
    rfkill 9108 1 rt2x00lib
    input_polldev 7176 1 rt2x00lib
    And for both of the drivers:
    Code:
    Module Size Used by
    mac80211 185184 3 rt2x00usb,rt2x00lib,iwl3945
    cfg80211 24712 3 rt2x00lib,iwl3945,mac80211
    The driver that you linked to seems to be based on the ipw3945 driver. The ipw3945 driver is older, and has been replaced with the iwl3945.
