    Question Linksys AE6000 Drivers


    I know that there are NO Linux drivers for the AE6000 Linksys Wifi Adapter, however I have noticed that there are Linux drivers for the AE1000 and I was thinking that it may be possible to download those drivers, and reverse engineer those drivers to run on the AE6000. Does anyone think that it is possible?

    Hi and welcome,

    According to this site, I would say no.
    You cannot use or extend the module rt3572sta for the ae1000, because the ae6000 uses a different chip.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Have you looked at wireless.kernel.org for help? Ok, just looked there - no joy in BeanTown... I also went to the Linksys (Cisco) web site, and I don't find any Linux drivers there either. I think you are SOL...

    Yeah, the only thing that is actually stopping me from putting linux on this computer is this wifi adapter. I'm going to pray they have cheap wifi dongles at target like under $15 that works on linux. If not then I have to save my bing rewards points up and get it from amazon. Thanks for all the help guys.
