D-Link DWL-G510


I have a big problem getting this nic to work. After some googling I figured this card comes in two versions, one with Marvell and one with another chipset I can't remember the name of. But my lspci shows none of these chipsets. It gives me:
Code:
0000:02:05.0 Network controller: RaLink: Unknown device 0302
I have no idea what driver I am supposed to use for this one, so I tried using ndiswrapper with the Windows XP driver that came with the nic.

It seems to work to a certain point. The nic appears both in ifconfig -a and in iwconfig. It also seem to find the access points. But when I run dhcpcd it simply times out. I have no luck using a static IP either.

My only clue to what is wrong is this little snippet from dmesg:
Code:
ndiswrapper (iw_set_tx_power:421): setting tx_power failed (C0010015)
ndiswrapper (set_infra_mode:189): setting operating mode failed (C0010015)
ndiswrapper (iw_set_tx_power:421): setting tx_power failed (C0010015)
ndiswrapper (set_infra_mode:189): setting operating mode failed (C0010015)
ndiswrapper (wrapper_worker_proc:1095): wlan0 is being reset
Anyone who can help me?

Look for the RaLink driver at http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com

Works OK for me (in Slackware).

Thanks for the help!

It fails to compile for me (Latest BETA rt2x00 driver: v2.0.0-b1). I tried the CVS snapshot too, but that one also failed to compile (different error tho. Seemed to get a bit further).

You don't happen to know the exact chipset and if the rt2500 or the rt2400 driver works?


Cheers,

Ole Markus

Hmmm... seems you have a card with the (as yet) unsupported RT2600 - see this thread: http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/phpBB...1b6e846efa70fe

Aye. I tried the closed source driver from Ralink now, but still no luck. Running iwconfig first gives me complaints about the driver being compiled with Wireless Extention v18 while I go v17, and then it freezes the system.

I have no idea what to do about that.

Cheers,
Ole Markus
