D-Link WUA 1340


I bought the D-Link WUA 1430 USB adapter today. I works perfectly on my Windows XP, But my FC5 doesnt not even recognize it. Does Linux have any driver for it?

Just message me back if you need any more information!

Thanks

try 'modprobe usbcore', remove and insert the device again. then post the output of 'dmesg | tail -n 20'.

in the meantime check out ndiswrapper, what it is and how you will use it to get your wireless adapter to work.

I installed the windows driver using ndiswrapper. My wireless adaptor also lights up. But when i try to add the wireless card in my netwrok setting, i dont find the card there.

Here is the output of dmesg now

Code:
usb 5-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9
usb 5-6: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
ndiswrapper version 1.19 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)
usb 5-6: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9
ndiswrapper: driver dr71wu (D-Link,11/03/2005, 1.0.1.0) loaded
wlan0: vendor: 'D-Link USB Wireless LAN Card'
wlan0: ndiswrapper ethernet device 00:15:e9:80:09:33 using driver dr71wu, 07D1:3 C04.F.conf
wlan0: encryption modes supported: WEP; TKIP with WPA, WPA2, WPA2PSK; AES/CCMP w ith WPA, WPA2, WPA2PSK
usbcore: registered new driver ndiswrapper

It can work with linux

The WUA-1340 does work with linux with some tinkering, I wrote a tutorial for Suse 10.1 but it should work with other distrobutions,
