ubuntu 8.04 DWA-130 A1 -INF file


Im having trouble locating the INF file to unwrap using ns, Ive downloaded the driver from the site as well as the cd-rom. They come with an exe file that in setup through wine and still cant find a inf file anywhere. I read that this is an out of the box working usb and would like some help on the issue of how to get ns to convert this driver. I checked in the folders i installed to as well as the hidden folders in wines windows inf file. Thanks

For what it's worth, I haven't been able to get 802.11n to work with ndiswrapper/win32 drivers on Feisty. Haven't tried it on my Gentoo box, but I was going to try if another googling didn't solve it.

Thanks again.

No luck. I compiled and loaded the driver modules and firmware, but while it loads fine I get no device. i.e., r8192_usb is loaded but no wlan0, wlan1, wlan2, etc..

using native module:

HELP! I am brand new to Linux.
I have a DWA-130 adapter. I installed the Linux apps. I see the Install windows drivers, I copied to the above inf to a text file and attempted to load it. It says: invalid driver file. I can not find a inf anywhere. Can someone please tell me what it is exactly I am supposed to do from here forward.

Thank you!

You'll also need the sys file. I can't recall precisely, but I had to jump through some hoops to get to it using wine.

I put them up for download here. I'm actually using them with ndiswrapper right now.

Good luck!
