2wire 802.11b/g wireless adapter on Ubuntu7.04
Ubuntu will not see the wireless adapter in Device Manager. If I open a terminal window and use lspci,lsusb,dmesg,iwconfig and so forth, the usb controller is seen as Intel but the wireless adapter card is not listed. I have tried to get a Linux driver but 2wire.com doesn't write for Linux and refuses to tell me what chipset they use on their 802.11 b/g model that they supply to
SBCglobal. I have learned the chipset is by Conexant. I can dual boot into winXP and get the driver which is Prismsvr and there is a win32 alternate driver which is WlanUIG.sys
The wireless adapter works fine in XP and I know I could try ndiswrapper
using the XP adapters but a native linux driver may be available and better. So,
what is the chipset for this adapter?
is there a driver to deal with said chipset?
is anyone reverse engineering this 2wire product as they seem Linux-hostile?
I am on a Dellc610 Laptop and all else works well on the dual boot.
Thx in advance.
