Hi all, anyone know if this card (Linksys Wireless G - Model WMP54G) is compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux?
Anyone know how to install and configure the card? I need to set up WEP and I need to configure a static I.P.
The card is V2
I dislike wireless PCI NIC because they create tons of problems. I recommend wired to wireless bridges (aka access points). These devices do not need any software to make them work. Also they do not add interference in the computer like wireless PCI NIC. Access points can be used with two setups. One connected directly to a computer wired NIC. The other is connect to a hub/switch to provide several computers with a wireless connection to another network.
My brother uses an access point because it gives him better performnace for games. Also it gives him better reception than what he has in his notebook computer.
No, you need to install the source package for the kernel you're currently running. Red Hat should have an RPM which you can download and install. Does RHEL use yum? Presumably you can download and install the package with that, but I can't be more specific since I don't use RHEL.
Thanks for the suggestion, I don't really want to spend 20 bucks on drivers though.
I have a Windows PC beside my linux box though with a free ethernet adapter. Can I just run a crossover from the 2 pc's and maybe use the Windows PC as a proxy so I can get the linux box on the network?
The windows pc has a wireless pci card connected to the router.
These 2 pc's are away from the router.
