A linux distro that supports my cards out of the box?
Hey all, could you help me out? I've installed Ubuntu Maverick on my tower and I really like it, but it's simply impossible to get anything wireless working. I've got two cards to choose from, Linksys WUSB00N (USB a/b/g/n) and a ZyDas USB B/G. I've tried native drivers, new firmware, NDISwrapper, and all possible combinations of them, but nothing works and I'm pretty sick of it. There was even one point where I got both NDISwrapped and hardware was present and when I modprobed the whole thing crashed! I also have a PCI linksys WMP54GS sitting around, but it's mostly broken.
Basically, I'm sick of it. Before it crashed, I had a 1997 laptop running Puppy Linux (a very nice, small distro. Great rescue CD too). I know for sure the ZyDas card worked with that out of the box, and possibly also the Linksys USB stick. I might not mind having Puppy on my nice dualcore tower, but my entire family has to use this thing and I need it to be multi-user. Puppy's only option is Root.
Does anyone know of a distro that will work out of the box with the Linksys stick (rt2870 chipset), the ZyDas card, or even the PCI one? I really don't care. I just need my wifi.
Thanks in advance!
