The drivers you will need to use depend on what card you have. Can you post the brand and model of your card?

So far I've found these drivers: http://aluminum.sourmilk.net/adm8211/

I found that link in another thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...05/01/1/273940

Here's a how-to: http://www.houseofcraig.net/belkin_howto.php

There's more information here (it's where I found the how-to): http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_...1b.html#ADMtek

hey dude,

i'm new here, and there is a same problem to me. i hv tried to add new device for my wireless card, however my wireless card is not showing in the list then i choose the option "other wireless card", and i found the model of my wireless card "Allied Telesyn".
After i'd completed the configuration settings, and Activate it, a dialog box "alt1700 not present, delaying initiazation" is shown. I think the problem will occur because the device is not found and since i don't know how to install my wireless card driver into the linux box
my wireless card model:

Allied Teleysn AT-WCL 452 Wireless 802.11b PCMCIA Radio;

which works fine in the windows platform.

this is the result of lspci

...

Network controller: ENE Technology Inc CB1410 Cardbus Controller (rev01)

...

what is this statement representating????is it showing my wireless card adapter????
In my view, i think it is my wireless device but i'm not sure. Please correct me if i'm wrong coz i'm newbie to linux and now start to learn more about it. Any help is highly appreciated.

tq in advance

nofear, what distribution of Linux are you using? Where are you going to 'add new device'?

It looks to me like the output from lspci is only showing the controller for the Cardbus slots. This is similar to the output I got on my system.

The card you are using is Prism2/2.5/3 based. I don't know if there is a distribution that includes drivers for this chipset by default, but do have different drivers to choose from. You could use the linux-wlan drivers or you could use the HostAP drivers. I use the HostAP drivers, but the linux-wlan drivers should also work.

i'm using Fedora core 3 on my Hyundai Laptop with Allied Telesyn AT-WCL wireless 802.11b Radio PCMCIA.

Quote:

i'm using internet connection wizard to add my wireless card.

ok, now i downloaded my wireless card's driver form the Allied Telesyn manufacture, and there is a readme document to guide me through the installation process, however i'm not clear with the guideline given:

Before Installation
-------------------
1. Make sure that "Netlink device emulation" option is selected in your kernel.
If not, please reconfigure your kernel and rebuild it.

2. Make sure you have installed the PCMCIA package which is available at
ftp://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net. The source code PCMCIA package is required
during the rebuild of driver.

form the second instruction, the link is not exist and i don't really understand how can i determine whether the "Netlink device emulation" option is selected in my kernel??????do u mind to tell me how can i determine the first instruction.

i know sumone will think i'm trying to get spoon-feed from this forum, but i'm really tried all the steps i could think of (googling) .... and since linux is still a stranger for me..... so i really need help from experienced ppl in this forum....


thanks for help.

pcmcia-cs is actually at http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/

Netlink device emulation could already be part of your kernel. For me it is compiled as a module. The module should be somewhere like '/lib/modules/kernel_version/kernel/net/netlink_dev.o'.

Otherwise, to check your kernel, you will need to make sure you have the kernel source. If it is installed it would probably be in /usr/src in a directory called something like linux-2.6. It can easily be installed if you don't have it with 'yum install kernel-source'. The config file from 'configs' may be needed. You will load it after you have used 'make menuconfig' or 'make xconfig' from within the kernel source folder. Either one should let you load a config file. Netlink device emulation should be in 'Networking options'.

when i tried the "yum install kernel-source", there

then i tried to downlaod the kernel srpm from http://download.fedora.redhat.com/p...x/core/3/SRPMS/

after installing the kernel source, everything works fine but when i start to configure my wlan driver, there is an error message there:

[root@localhost linux-wlan-ng-0.1.16-pre5]# ./Configure

-------------- Linux WLAN Configuration Script -------------

The default responses are correct for most users.

Build Prism2.x PCMCIA Card Services (_cs) driver? (y/n) [y]:

Build Prism2 PLX9052 based PCI (_plx) adapter driver? (y/n) [n]:

Build Prism2.5 native PCI (_pci) driver? (y/n) [n]:

Build Prism2.5 USB (_usb) driver? (y/n) [n]:

Linux source directory [/usr/src/linux]:
Linux source tree /usr/src/linux is incomplete or missing!
The kernel header files are present, but not the full source code.
See the HOWTO for a list of FTP sites for current kernel sources.

Configuration failed

then i check the kernel source which is acutally installed in /usr/src/linux .....

[root@localhost linux-wlan-ng-0.1.16-pre5]# ls -an /usr/src
total 28
drwxr-xr-x 3 0 0 4096 May 23 16:02 .
drwxr-xr-x 14 0 0 4096 May 21 18:58 ..
lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 0 48 May 23 16:02 linux -> /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.11/linux-2.6.11
drwxr-xr-x 7 0 0 4096 May 21 19:43 redhat

then wat is the problem now???? anyone can help me to resovle this???? i'm running out of ideas

I think that error can be caused by not having the correct config file loaded. Go to the kernel source directory and load the correct config file with one of the make commands I listed earlier, then try to configure the linux-wlan source again.
