Linksys Wireless USB install


I am running MythDora 10.21 64 bit version and I am trying to install a Linksys wireless usb stick (WUSB54GC).
When I access the "Wireless Assistant" it tells me " No Usable Wireless Devices Found" and then quits.
This is the output from running lsusb and iwconfig:
[root@localhost ~]# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 1737:0077 Linksys
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c517 Logitech, Inc. LX710 Cordless Desktop Laser
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
[root@localhost ~]# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

I also followed this great How To on ndiswrapper and installed the driver but still no luck, same results with lsusb and iwconfig.

If anybody could be of help I would appreciate it, not sure what I need to do to get the wireless device working proper, thanks.

Run 'lspci' from terminal and see if you have a ralink chip in you wireless card. Ralink has a native linux driver on their website that works. Sorry for the short advice but the only usb wireless card I installed was a ralink.

I am sorry, not thinking again. See what results you get from 'lsusb' with the module pluged in.

Here is the ralink page and from what I could find you have a rt73 chipset. They have the linux drivers here and the make files with the drivers.

Yours should be http://www.ralinktech.com.tw/data/dr....1.0.2.tar.bz2


You will need to remove your ndiswrapper to use this driver

I removed ndiswrapper and installed the driver as the README file said and I still get no wireless usb device recognized with the same output from lsusb and iwconfig. I must be doing something wrong or missing something, I just don't know what it is.
Thanks for the link with the driver.

Did you end up with any errors on the installation of the driver. Did you reboot your computer after the driver install?

No I didn't get any errors, the driver installed just fine from what I can tell and yes I did reboot.

check your 'ifconfig' and 'iwconfig' and post the results.

Well I went back and ran the install again and I think I missed this the first time but this is what I got:

[root@localhost Module]# make config


-------------------- Ralink RT73 Station Configuration --------------------

make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.27.9-159.fc10.x86_64/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2

I don't know why it's giving me this error because I do have that module in that location which I thought was weird.

Why did you use the 'C' in the make -C/lib/modules2.6.27.9-159.fc10.x86_64/build?

The instructions to install the driver wanted me to use "make all" but I get the error below, so I just tried using "make" instead.

./Configure: line 82: [: make: binary operator expected

Try using 'make -/lib/modules/2.6.27.9-159.fc10.x86_64/build', leave out the C and the quote marks.
