Question Installing D-Link DWA-542 On Ubuntu 7.10


I just downloaded Ubuntu yesterday, so am kind of new at this, up until now I have been using Windows XP, but this seems much better. Anyways, my question is how can I install my D-Link DWA-542 On Ubuntu 7.10?

Hi RyanThePerson, Welcome to lq. Could you post the output from the following commands?

Code:
sudo lspci -v
sudo lsmod
This should tell us what chip the card has and what modules are loaded.
Good luck ;-)

I have the same problem, I'm trying to make wireless work on my comp, I'm using ArchLinux so I'm guessing it will be a bit different, but this is what comes up for the wireless card:

03:00.0 Class 3a69: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5416 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless PCI Adapter (rev 86) (prog-if 11)
Subsystem: D-Link System Inc Unknown device 3a69
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11
Memory at dfbf0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
Capabilities: [40] #80 [0000]
Capabilities: [80] #00 [0000]

And I have the same card as him, D-Link DWA-542.

Hi SiegeMachine, Welcome to lq. You'll need the madwifi drivers for that atheros card. You can get them here. Be sure and follow the how to for first timers here.
Good luck. ;-)
