U.S.Robotics Wireless Turbo PCI adapter (model USR805416) is not detected.
Any idea on how to get it work?

Truying to compile all that wlan stuff... this supposes re-compilation of kernel which I don't know how to do. Is there any other way to get it work?

I don't think I compiled the kernel correctly, never mind, it is not bootable yet ( I am afraid to crash the whole system) .
I installed the wlan stuff but as I can see in the Control Center, wlan is not started on boot because the command 80211.a (or something like that ) doesn't exist.

I compiled the dumn kernel and crashed X
Well, given that there were no other problems I tried to compile the wlan drivers. It did not compile telling that 173 Mb kernel is incomplete or missing all toghether.

N.B. I bought Robotics stuff because on their dumn website it was written it supports Linux. However when I contacted their HelpDesk they kindly replied they don't support Linux. I feel like investigating where I can complain about misleading ads (misleading ads are illegal in Belgium, are they legal in the US?).

Can anyone help?? Does someone here uses Robotics wireless on Linux?

Hello... hello... is there somebody?

Am I doing something so weird trying to use U.S.Robotics? Or is it totally unknown brand and no one else ever heard about Robotics wireless in this forum?

Welcome to LQ!

I haven't found solution other than connecting with a cable.

USR write on their website that they support Linux, and in the mail to disappointed customers they honestly tell they don't support it.
Well, long live USR.

Have a look at http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader
They claim "that DriverLoader works with almost all CardBus (32-bit PCMCIA/PC Card) and PCI Wireless LAN devices"

I didn't try it, so i don't know if it works...

I am still bound with very thick cables.
Linuxant did not work with MDK9.1, 9.2 and crossover isn't in my religion.
Maybe one day the deaf Robotics will employ somebody with a decent hearing.
