Trying to install drivers for Linksys WUSB11 NIC v2.5 on RedHat 9


I have a Linksys WUSB11 NIC v2.5 that I'm trying to install on RedHat 9. This NIC uses the Prism chipset. I have downloaded the latest drivers from here. I followed the README and the installation went fine. The problem is when I try to run this command ''modprobe prism2_usb prism2_doreset=1' as mentioned on the README. I get a bunch of unresolved symbols errors. Does that mean the command didn't work? I also tried running this command, 'wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable' and it said no devices were found. The usb NIC is working since both lights are lit up, but I can't ping my router or surf the internet. Can someone help me out here? Thanks.

Use the search, Luke!

It took me about 50seconds to find a thread
that might fix your problem here, how long did
it take you to type the question? ;)


Cheers,
Tink

I looked through a couple of those threads and tried some stuff out but it's still not working. It always gives me a message about the device not being present.

What did you try? What was the result (unless device not found is the only result)? Did you run the modprobe command as root? If so, perhaps typing /sbin/modprobe <the rest of that stuff goes here> as maybe modprobe isn't in your root's path (although that would be strange). Keep us posted.

I followed directions from here and here. As I mentioned before, I get unresolved symbol errors whenever I try to run modprobe and it always fails. I also tried /sbin/modprobe, but I still got errors. I can't get past that part in the directions.
