Welcome to LQ!
Could you please post a little more info about exactly what you want, does mandriva even recognize it? what happens when you plug it in?

Talking

OK thank you for replying, first mandriva/linux doesn't recognize that I have anything plugged into the port. It does however see the two nic-cards that are installed. {But I don't want to run a cable all over the house if you know what I mean:} I have the driver disk that came with it, but I don't know how to "wrap" the driver so that I may use it. Basically the mini ubs adapter is plugged in but not seen. Help Please Help,Help Please Help....Thank You very much. The Product is a Hawking Mini USB adapter hwu54g. or if there is a driver out that maybe used that would work also just want to get to my home network and to the Internet.

Did both of those with no success they have a driver for redhat but it is not recognized buy mandriva or it is only for their pci products. Do you know any driver that may be use as an alternate.

Hi, BeMac1 - welcome to the hairy world of Linux

Check http://linux-wless.passys.nl/Hawking_Tech.html for some info about this and a few other Hawking cards. It's supposed to be a ZyDas chipset, supported by a driver (http://sourceforge.net/projects/zd1211/ ) initially contributed by the company but now community supported. You have to build it, I'm afraid.

I'm going to buy one of these in a little while. Hopefully, I'll remember, and post results here....

OK, I finally tried the aforementioned driver from sourceforge. On a pentium-4 running SuSE 9.1 with a 2.6.8-24.11-default kernel, I just made sure I isntalled the kernel-source package, had to set a symlink /lib/modules/2.6.8 -> 2.6.8-24.11-default/ , then did a 'make' and a 'make install', and it seems to work. Comes up as 'wlan1' on that system, since there's a built-in USB wlan0.

Crashes the hell out of a g5 running Fedora Core 4 ppc64, though. Hope it works with 32-bit ppc...
