Rosewill RNX-G300EX Wireless PCI adapter


I have tried Debian's guide to installing the drivers/firmware, but it refused to connect to any network, even though it showed me the networks that I wanted to connect to. I the tried to compile the drivers from scratch using the driver provided on rosewill's site. That did not work either. Any help folks? It uses a RaLink RN65 chipset I believe.

Going to send the card back. Does anybody have a suggestion for a good PCI/PCI Express Wireless adapter that works with Debian 6?

I use Zydas chipset based cards and they seem to work out of the box on ubuntu and most distros, but Debian would ask for drivers at installation.

Thanks. I will give that a try. I am using devian, so if you can send me some info on getting it to work, I would greatly appreciate it. BTW, what is the model that you are using?

It's Minitar, usually this chipset comes in "no-name" cards.
