ZyXEL wireless card help on RedHat 9.0


I got a ZyXEL g-102 wireless card for my IBM ThinkPad with RedHat 9.0 installed. Oddly, the computer doesn't find it, nor does the power light on the card even light up. I'm not sure how to configure the card and activate it. Can anyone help?

Run command 'lspci -v' and see if the card is identified anywhere in the output.

Depending on the hardware inside the card, it might work with a more up-to-date linux distribution.

Try as root maybe. If still no luck time to upgrade to a new distribution maybe.

Your wireless adapter should be listed there. There are probably several completely different wireless cards made by ZyXEL. You need the extra information given by lspci to figure out what it is. For some manufacturers even the model name is not a reliable guide as they release different hardware under the same name.

Some newer distributions may be able to figure out what your card is and install a driver automatically (if you are lucky) but not much chance with RH9 I think.

The cardbus is active, but where can I download the drivers to search for the card?

It seems like ZyXEL makes more than one model of 801g wireless card. Which one is yours?
