D-Link USB Wireless card won't work - Jolicloud


I have a WUA-2340 USB Adapter manufactured by D-Link. This is my first day using a Linux based cloud OS, so please give me as much detail as possible in your answers.

I need some drivers for my USB Wlan device. Any suggestions?

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

Hello opensesame and welcome to LQ,

the first step is to find out if your USB-device is recognized by the kernel/OS. Please open a terminal and post the output of
Code:
sudo lsusb
or
Code:
/usr/sbin/lsusb
respectively.
Also you may post the output of
Code:
dmesg | tail
(directly after putting the USB-device in)
The following step is to find out if the appropriate modules are loaded (in the windows-world we would speak about the "driver"). The command is "lsmod" on the commandline. So please post the output of
Code:
lsmod
.

Hello opensesame11,

I'm happy to read that you went further with your network. The next steps would be to configure the device for your Wireless network. Google for "wpa_supplicant", this is program is responsible for the authentication in your Network (maybe there is an easier more automatic way in your distro). And try "iwconfig" as well as "ifconfig" to check your devices.

Markus
