How can I get the D-Link AirPlus G DWL-G122 Wireless USB Adapter working under Debian


Hi,

Im a total noob with Linux, im still very much a windows user simply because its easier but im trying to break away from this habit and use Linux more.

I recently purchased a D-Link ADSL G-604T wireless router which included the USB adapter (dont have a wireless NIC) but I dont know how to install the USB adapter in Debian so I can connect to the wireless router.

How do I check the USB adapter is installed? If its not how do i install it?

Im using Debisn Sarge 3.1r2 and am using the 2.6 kernel from the CD.

Any help much appreciated.

You can do an:

lsusb

And check that it is plugged and the system can communicate with the hardware. However, wireless are a bit difficult to work with, since there are very little driver support in the kernel. I really don't know if your wireless nic is supported.

The shure way that you can installed is by ndiswrapper. Ndiswrapper will allow to use your wireless drivers for windows with linux and successfully install it.

Check at the web site for detailed instructions.

Let me know how it goes!!

Hi cux,

I was having issues with my wireless in windows etc (bad signal strength mainly) so I decided to route a network cable around the house.

No need for wireless for the time being but thanks for replyng to my post anyways man.
