Dlink 520+ wireless pci card


Hi,

I installed Ubuntu 12.04 and my wireless dlink 520+ wireless pci card. But I'm not able to make it work.
when I type: iwconfig, I get:
- lo no wireless extention
- eth0 no wireless extention

I found out that it needs a ACX100 driver & firmware but I don't understand how to install it.
in lib/firmware, I have no acx folder.

Could any-one help me?

Ubuntu 3.2 and no kernel module loaded. This is a Ubuntu server?
Quote:
Linux ubuntuserver
Try

Code:
sudo modprobe acx
Then after that

Code:
sudo ifconfig -a
to see if wlan0 shows up then

yes, it's a ubuntu server (for private use, I wanna keep my pictures on it).

with sudo modprobe acx, I get:

With sudo ifconfig -a, I get:

I was afraid of that. I guess ndisgtk install with a windows driver one way to go to get it working.

pay attention to

Quote:
Installation

Before you install any wireless driver with ndiswrapper or ndisgtk, make sure there are no other drivers trying to use your wireless card. If there are, your ubuntu may freeze.

Ubuntu comes with the necessary ndiswrapper module pre-installed, but it needs the ndiswrapper-utils package to get it working. There is also a graphical interface for ndiswrapper that you can use called ndisgtk. This interface allows you to install, uninstall, and automatically start your ndiswrapper drivers very easily.
Since I saw no driver or module loaded in your lspci -knn out put. I don't think another driver is loading so there should be no conflict.

If You know how to install a .targz and know how to use build-essentials tool in terminal
Here is a user patch with a Linux driver.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/acx100/

http://acx100.sourceforge.net/


http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik....php?title=ACX

Either way. You bought a pci card that requires jumping through some hoops to get it working in Linux because the vendor for that card did not release a Linux driver for it.

ndiswrapper

ndisgtk is already installed because when I type:
apt-get install ndisgtk, I get:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
ndisgtk is already the newest version.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
linux-headers-3.2.0-23-generic linux-headers-3.2.0-23 linux-headers-3.2.0-24
linux-headers-3.2.0-24-generic libidl-common libidl0 liborbit2
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 6 not upgraded.

but if I type, ndiswrapper -l, I don't get anything.

As far as I understand, ndisgtk is installed but not ndiswrapper.

So I downloaded ACX-80020210.tar.bz2
I uncompressed it
but now, when I do ./configure, I get :

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory


And then, when I put "make" in the commande line, I get all kind of errors:

root@ubuntuserver:/home/myName/Downloads/acx-20080210# make

Do I have to put the acx directory into another folder than "Downloads"?
And do I have to install ndiswrapper before installing this driver?

Sorry, I'm really new to Linux... I used windows before!

You need the build-essentials package for make in Ubuntu.

I guess you ignored my pay attention to

ndiswrapper is for windows drivers. Not Linux tarballs.

64bit

so I installed
ndiswrapper utils
ndiswrapper
the driver of my pci card
but it does still not show up with iwconfig
because my kernel is 64bit and dlink does only provide 32bit drivers
for my pci card.

So tomorrow, I will try with the tarballs and if this is not working either, I just go and by another wireless card!

Thanks for your help!

arch/x86/tools/relocs.c

So today I tried to install my pci card through the tarball. I followed the instruction on the following webside: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik....php?title=ACX
inside the kernel.

I did:
cd /usr/src/linux-headers-3.2.0-29-generic/drivers/net/wireless
mkdir acx
cd acx
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/acx...080210.tar.bz2
tar xvjf acx-20071003.tar.bz2

${EDITOR} acx_config.h # comment out the USB line with '//'
${EDITOR} Makefile # comment out the USB line with '#'

cd ..
echo 'obj-m += acx/' >> Makefile
# the Makefile is in my acx folder

cd /usr/src/linux-headers-3.2.0-29-generic
make menuconfig #a menu opened but I did'nt do anything in it.
make && make modules_install # I get the following error:
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `arch/x86/tools/relocs.c', needed by `arch/x86/tools/relocs'. Stop.
make: *** [archscripts] Error 2

No rule to make target came up because you did not load the acx module into the kernel when menuconfig came up is my best guess.

Quote:
If Menuconfig quits with an error while saving your configuration,
you may look in the file /usr/src/linux/.menuconfig.log for
information which may help you determine the cause.

Lastly. What Debian has to say about your pci card.
