    Or you can go to www.linux-wlan.com they have all the Linksys wireless drivers.

    I havent checked lately wlan, last time they didnt had support for the chipset, the G series from Linksys are made with Broadcom chipset... and Broadcom refuses to release a driver/specs for open source to develop a driver...

    this makes linuxant and ndiswrapper the only options.... they use the windows drivers with a loaddriver that makes the calls to linux...

    he's asking about the 2.8 series 802.11B though

    Ver. 4 of the LInksys is where they changed chipset (although I could be wrong if USB versions are different)

    Oh and no they haven't released drivers for the new chipset
    Those @$%@$% at broadcom

    Sucks linksys switched
    Prism made quite a bit available for them.

    Thanks for the help...I will give those drivers a try. Linux can see that there is a device there, it just doesnt know what it is. I am pretty patient when it comes to things like this. Its all learning for me and I'm having fun with it.

    upsss didnt notice b....

    lauroy8 verify what chipset do you have:

    as root type:

    lspci

    and look for it on network controller or usb device (not sure because its hooked to the usb port), it will tell you what chipset you have...

    I believe it is a Prism based unit. I got the drivers from linix-wlan.com. When I do "make config" it wants to know where the linux source directory is?? Sorry to be a pain....just learning.

    Thanks

    It depends if you installed the Kernel-Source package

    Search in your RPM Manager for "Kernel" and make sure the source package is installed

    After that it should default to /usr/src/linux

    For mandrake 9.2 download edition you need to get to their ftp to grab the kernel sources, they arent in disc 3 like previous versions.

    you can use urpmi to get the sources download via the command line... follow the steps on the following link....
    http://urpmi.org/easyurpmi/index.php

    after write: urpmi -i kernel-sources

    altought you will need to have a internet connection on linux to get it done..

    ok according to XP the chip is an Atmel. I have tried the atmel drivers from sourceforge but I just can't seem to get it detected properly. Linux sees the USB device but no matter what I do it doesn't know what it is. USBview shows the fol info:

    Unknown Device
    Speed: 12mb/s (full)
    USB Version: 1.10
    Device Class: 00(>ifc)
    Device Subclass: 00
    Device Protocol: 00
    Maximum Default Endpoint Size: 8
    Number of Configurations: 1
    Vendor Id: 1915
    Product Id: 2233
    Revision Number: 1.00

    Config Number: 1
    Number of Interfaces: 1
    Attributes: 80
    MaxPower Needed: 500mA

    Interface Number: 0
    Name: (none)
    Alternate Number: 0
    Class: fe(app.)
    Sub Class: 01
    Protocol: 00
    Number of Endpoints: 0

    Ok, I have confirmed that it is WUSB11 ver2.8. How do I make it work?
