Question Linksys WUSB11 - FC2


I installed Fedora Core 2 yesterday. My friend warned me before wiping my HD that I wouldn't be able to get internet and I didn't listen...

How do I get my Linksys WUSB11 to work on FC2? I don't even know where to start.
Do I need to install my USB card? HELP!!!

The above link works for WUSB11 v2.6 (slide the wall mount bracket off the back to check your version number). If you have WUSB11 v2.8 take a look at:

hope this helps...

Do you speak Czechoslovakian?

If so you may be able to understand how to install the drivers here:

Also, I found this nugget from http://www.seattlewireless.net/index.cgi/RoofTopAdHoc:

Quote:
The WUSB11 v3.0 seems to be prism based, sortof works under linux with wlan drivers after adding device id's to src/prism2/driver/prism2sta.c, but my laptop kernel panics if I transmit/receive any large amount of data. Still works great with kismet(got 2 of them for $20 each, running parallel). Seems to have a MMCX connector inside, but need to get a pigtail first to be sure.
Here's the link for the wlan drivers that had to be hacked referred to above:

Actually, I just downloaded the latest source code from http://www.linux-wlan.org/ and grepped for WUSB11 and found that someone has already added support in:

Quote:
prism2_usb.c:
{PRISM_USB_DEVICE(0x1915, 0x2236, "Linksys WUSB11v3.0 11Mbps WLAN USB Adapter")},
So, get the latest version (linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1pre22) from ftp://ftp.linux-wlan.org/pub/linux-wlan-ng/ and follow the instructions in the README file.

Good luck...
