what linux driver do i need in order to get internet using a WiFi-AP Solo solution
 
Hello everyone, I have a WiFi - Ap solo antenna that came with my M2N32-SLI Asus motherboard. I followed the directions of installing it, to the point where I click on the linux drivers folder. I need a linux driver that will allow me to install the WiFi. Am I approaching this correctly... what are some suggestions for the right linux driver for this antenna? I am using Fedora 7 if that makes a difference ..

Here are the instructions:

Quote:

< Installation >
Runing the scripts can finish all operations of building up modules
from the source code and start the nic.
1. Build up the drivers from the source code
./makedrv

2. load the driver module to kernel and start up nic
./wlan0up
You will find these instructions in the ReadMe.txt file.

First you need to right-click on the LinuxDrivers.zip file and choose extract here from the menu.

This will create 4 folders.

Go into the WiFi folder then into the linux26x-8187(110) folder.

You will see this zipfile: rtl8187_linux_26.1010.0622.2006.tar.gz.

To make things simpler, right-click the zipfile and choose copy, now right-click your /home/username folder and select paste.

Go to where you just pasted this file, right-click it and again select extract here.

You should now see a folder named rtl8187_linux_26.1010.0622.2006.

Start a terminal or console session. Type: cd rtl8187_linux_26.1010.0622.2006 and press return or enter. Once in this folder, you perform the commands above to make and load your driver.

I have been trying to get my 802.11 PCI card to work with Linux and the acx module. I have not been able to figure that out yet. I did get it to work with the W$ndows drivers from the cd for the card. Someone helped me to do that by telling me to use "ndiswrapper". OpenSuse has a web on the use of ndiswrapper with a W$ndows driver cd. You need to use the INF file.

To use the inf, use the option to add a new wireless network card. If the driver doesn't already exist on your system, the ndiswrapper interface should appear and offer you the option of using it to install a driver. Point it to the XP/WINXP folder (which should be there if you have extracted the ASUS_WiFi-AP-Solo_V5123005302006.zip file), and it should take care of the rest.
