    Siemens Gigaset USB Adapter 54 issue


    Hy everybody,

    #1
    i would like to know how install the driver for this adapter.
    At first, I installed the windows driver, with ndiswrapper.
    Then I got sick of it, and i looked up, and found the prism driver(p54usb).
    I would just like to know how to install them?

    #2
    i have installed the p54usb driver(by default, came with the OS).
    I have an interface(wlan0), just it won't connect to the internet.
    I tried
    # iwconfig wlan0 essid "MYAP"
    i have put away security key(WEP) for testing, just to see if it's working. But it aint.
    i go like this:
    # ifconfig wlan0 192.168.2.101 --> my wlan ip
    # route add default gw 192.168.2.1

    And when i try to ping, it doesnt recognize the site(google.com).
    Any help?

    Your card requires firmware before it will work properly. See this for more info:

    p54 - Linux Wireless

    For more info on the firmware loading, run this command.
    Code:
    dmesg | grep firmware
    You may need more information about your wireless. Read through this post, for instructions on how to find the info. Post the info here if you can.
