D-Link DSL-G604T


Hi all, I bought a new wireless router. It's a D-Link DSL-G604T info (Ooops I can't post urls). It's working fine, I have my own computer, my sisters and my parents computer all running fine with the new router (All running windows XP). However I can't get it to work on linux. I'm using redhat linux9 and there's no drivers for it and linux wont detect it. The wireless receiver is USB not ethernet.
An ethernet cable from the router to the machine running linux works, however that means a horrible 30 meter cable winding around the house, which my dad isn't to please about seeing as how he bought me a wireless router.
Does anyone know how I can solve this problem? I'm new to linux and have very little knowledge of it so if you could simplifly your help as much as possible that would be great!


All help appreciated,
AppZ.

The 'card' itself is a small anntena that plugs into the USB... The model is 'DWL-G122'. I've searched on google but not been able to find anything of any relevance.

ndiswrapper supports this card I think.

Start here

http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/phpwiki/index.php

check out the list for a suitable driver.

Post back here if you have any problems setting it up.

Cheers!

Actually I've just checked the list for your card and it seems there's a few problems with the chipset and getting drivers to work.

I googled around and found a blog where someone has got it work properly with ndiswrapper. That link is here

I also have the same router and cannot work out how to get it working with redhat fedora core 3 with an ethernet cable. I can get it to work with Windows XP and Tiger on my powerbook. I can access the webconfig utility but not the internet - maybe a DNS problem ?

All of the settings are the default with the router acting as a DHCP server assigning addresses 192.168.1.*

This is really annoying me. HELP !
