How do you determine your chip set?


How do you determine the chip set for the wireless card you are working on. I call Linksys and they refused to disclosed the information. I know the chip set is made by Airgo Inc. and that it is a mimo chip set nothing more..

Linksys wpc54gx4

For a cardbus or miniPCI card, use the command lspci. For more details, add a -v or -vv.

For a PCMCIA card, use cardctl ident.

Or, go here: http://www.linux-wlan.org/docs/wlan_adapters.html.gz

Did you try lspci -v?

According to this thread, it's working: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=479239

I have it working with an old pcmcia card. I am still trying to get the high speed card working.

The only card is a wpc54g (broadcom) and the new card is a wpc54gx4 (airgo inc chip set unknown).

It may be that you're out of luck. Have you Googled for airgo chipset linux driver?

I found a site:

www.csie.nctu.ecu.tw/~cfliu/work/8650.htm

Quote:

Linksys WRT54GX4, Wireless-G Broadband Router with SRX400, RTL8651B+Airo 2x3 True MIMO Gen3 chipset
could I assume the pcmcia card would use the same chip set?

Step one would be to start a new thread with your specifics instead of gloming onto an unrelated one.

Step two: Get the driver from the project page. http://sourceforge.net/projects/rt2400

Three: Read the wiki. http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

Four: Install the driver per the wiki instructions

Five: Configure the wireless parameters

Six: Configure the network parameters
