I've got a laptop using a Linksys WUSB54GC. I've read up on the forums, and all across the net on this, but this is my first experience with wireless and I'm having some trouble.
I've gotten the rt73 driver installed and loaded, and have interface "rausb0"--I feel as if I'm very close to getting wireless working, as iwlist rausb0 scan shows my network.
The problem I'm having now is that I have no idea where to go from here..I've tried setting the essid of my WAP manually using both iwconfig and iwpriv, and neither way applies the change.
I've seen a lot on the net about the rt73sta.dat file that needs to be configured, and I believe I've set this file up right, but I'm still having these problems with my card.
I've got a WPA-Preshared key with AES encryption.
Here's some more info..
config_eth0=( "dhcp" )
config_rausb0=("192.168.1.99 netmask 255.255.255.0")
routes_rausb0=("default via 192.168.1.1")
Maybe the driver isn't loading correctly??? (this probably isn't the issue)
When I plug in the WUSB54GC, this is dmesg output..
usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
