Gentoo wifi


Well I gave up on Slackware and went to Gentoo. But it didnt detect my USB. Redhat and Mandrake detects it though, Does anyone know how to get the linksys wusb11 ver.2.6 on Gentoo 2004.2?

I take that back it does detect my USB. When I disconnect it and connect it and type dmesg it says:

usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:1d:0-1 address 3
hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.0-1, assigned adress 4
usb.c: USB device 4 (vent/prod 0x77b/0x2219) is not claimed by any active driver

Your card isn't on the ndiswrapper list http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/List but you might want to try it anyway (and send your results to them ) as there are a lot of linksys cards supported, as is the other linksys USB card.

Here's another thread with your card and they've got it to work with another chipset's drivers. I don't know if that is with using ndiswrapper or those drivers were enough but I guess a google search can find that out.

Well like I said your card isn't on the ndiswrapper list. You can try it out. Or you can search which driver others used toget your card to work. Do a search on google or here. It's your choice.
