What version of ubuntu? What error messages, what syslog? I imagine you are
not new to forums, so you know asking a "good" question is important.
I have very limited time for now, so I am not sure I can help, but anybody
being linux-savy should be able to help
On where the serial code is (under the removable black plate with sticky pads) it says on there.

I have tried a few guides, the 2 methods, and one over on the Ubuntu forums,
This is a URL to the guide (I was trying using Belkin one for the time being ) http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=106846

Im getting the following error:



Code:
 * Reconfiguring network interfaces...                           [fail]
This is whats inside /var/log/messages

Code:
May 5 01:55:49 Localhost hp: unable to connect to hpiod socket 1025: Network is unreachable; prnt/hpijs/hplip_api.c 693
With the linksys one, I was just getting errors on ndiswrapper, but I updated it the other day, so will try again ... lol. I cant remember the exact error, so I will find it out later on today, I have only just woke up, and will post

Hi,
Did search ubuntu RT2570 + wusb54GS, no hit. so do not know if this can work with the wusb54gs

>>but I updated it the other day, so will try again
I suggest you follow my mini howto with the same ndiswrapper version I used
and the driver from the cd. and let us know.

I cannot help with you error messages. It just look like something is really wrong,
but I have no suggestion, apart from running tail -f /var/log/syslog
all the way during the install

>>under the removable black plate
doh, never tried to remove it. was not bothered. Indeed.

Talking

soulxcavtor You can install kwifimanager for example or use all the mandriva tools
drakconf then wifi
I will not answer to generic questions about wifi in the current thread anymore.
It will be reserved to hardware, driver, and whatnot, or people having success with
various versions of the hardware

Thanks to soulxcavtor, the method to install the wusb54gs has been duplicated
If you cannot follow the instructions you can try this thread
"WUSB54GS will it work in linux?"
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=445558

and you can post generic questions there if you have done some homework

I do not work for linksys and I think everyone using a wusb54gs with linux
should go and complain to them, and ask support there.

When I asked about serial No and version:
Quote:
Thank you for contacting Linksys Technical Support.
We apologize but that information is not released to the public. We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience as a result of this.
When I asked politely about linux support
Quote:
Dear Linksys Valued Customer,
Thank you for contacting Linksys Technical Support.

You mentioned that you wanted to know which adapter is compatible with Linux. With regard to your concern, we do not have drivers nor the list for the adapters serial numbers that are compatible with Linux. This is due to our not supporting the Linux operating system. We apologize for any inconvenience this matter may cause you.

For more information on our products, please visit http://www.linksys.com/kb

Please feel free to send us an E-mail at support@linksys.com for any questions or suggestions that you may want us to know.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Post #13 is a step by step, pretty detailed
Will be away from my PC for a long time now, sorry I cannot help
I suggest you post all the steps, and all you are doing in the ubuntu forum
linking to my instructions and telling people what you do not understand.
(for inspiration see the link to the suse 10.1 post on the wusb54gs)
The usb device could not be made to work with suse 10.1, so hold
your breath with Ubuntu. Please let us know if it works
Good luck

Code:
finch@neith:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
FATAL: Could not open '/lib/modules/2.6.15-25-386/kernel/drivers/net/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or directory

I google'd and couldn't find anything. So I decided to install a new version of ndiswrapper from the sourceforge website.

I do "make" and get the following:

Code:
finch@neith:~/ndiswrapper-1.18/ndiswrapper-1.18$ make
make -C driver
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/finch/ndiswrapper-1.18/ndiswrapper-1.18/driver'

make[1]: *** [prereq_check] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/finch/ndiswrapper-1.18/ndiswrapper-1.18/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I am all out of ideas, any help will be much appreciated - but remember, when telling me what to do, remember to tell me how (don't just say "recompile your kernel" - give me directions too!) or else I will be stumped!


Thanks in advance =D

So I thought I'd post here as it's really to do with this thread! I did the howto exact (making sure the size/case match, pairing .inf to ndis etc .. until it gets to modprobe ndiswrapper) ... but I am getting the above problem (ndiswrapper.ko) ... any ideas?



###


Ok. So I unplugged the device and did the "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper" and nothing was returned so I assumed we're cool ... I plugged the device in and it crashes Ubuntu, ideas?

I'm sorry if I seem unintelligent but the step by step process in Step 13 is like greek to me. I can not make heads or tails of it and have only been booting into windows which is exactly the opposite of what I want to happen.

I did not use any of that

Which mandriva version have you got?
Did you try drakconnect (and define wlan0 in there). Type drakconnect as root in a terminal
Once defined you may need to iterate with
service network restart
and/or
modprobe -r ndiswrapper then modprobe ndiswrapper

You are there, from what you posted the driver and usbdevice are working

To ChrisC098
This is a learning curve issue. Just have a look in LQ bookmark
for newbie then for rute. You need a bit of practice with linux
before jumping into installing these damned USB devices not supported by Linksys for linux
>>is like greek to me
see http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm
Perserverance is the key
Good question or explaining what you do not understand would help

Hi Emmanuel_uk,

Thank you for you reply and more so for all the help you provided on this forum.
I am using the Mandriva 2006 (free version).

Finally, after a while, I rebooted my machine and wrote:

modprobe prism2_usb prism2_doreset=1
modprobe ndiswrapper

and the wlan0 appeared
For the rest, I used the graphic interface to configure the wireless network.
I still don't understand why the wlan0 did not appear before. I should had probably done: service network restart

So now everything work perfectly.

Thank you.

A happy linux user.
It is not always easy but the effort is worth to have an alternative operating system.

Numa.

I agree.

Congrats in making the device work :-) :-) :-)

# locate prism2_usb
/usr/src/linux-2.6.11-13mdk/3rdparty/prism25/prism2_usb.c

I do not understand why you need
modprobe prism2_usb prism2_doreset=1
Nevermind. I do not think you need it... maybe I am wrong

Hi Emmanuel_uk,

Thank you again for your help last time.
Now I am having exactly the same problem than a few months ago (see on this page 07/04/06).
My wireless adaptor worked fine until I updated Mandriva from 2006 to 2007 and now I stuck with the same problem as before: no wlan0.

I posted a detailed description of my problem on another thread (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=500357)
but I did not much answers. So I was wondering if you did have any advises?
I dont know what else I should try.
Sorry for the double posting but I am going blow a fuse, it does not make any sense.

Thanks

numa

(29/11/2006: Regarding Emmanuel_uk's next post: Brillant, thanks.)
