omg omg omg. i got it to work!!
even with WUSB54GS/uk version 2. I followed Emmanuel_UK steps. I spent 2-3 hours googling etc. Followed Emmanuel steps and everything was fine but I couldn't get the wlan0 to come up.

If you get this usbcore: registered new driver ndiswrapper
and nothing afterwards in the dmesg. It means that you do not have enough amp on your usb. It doesn't show any error message and iwconfig doesnt show you have a wireless device.

I went into syslog and saw usb 1-1: no configuration chosen from 1 choice I googled a bit and found http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=285873

Basically I entered the command echo -n 1 > /sys/bus/usb/devices/1-1.3/bConfigurationValue

I have changed 1-1.3 to 1-1 as that is what it says on my dmesg. Then I got a load of message saying wlan0 is up!!! great I'm so happy hehe.

Thanks a lot Emmanuel_UK.

Congrats! Well done. Happy Xmas!
Do you mind posting some versions
from lsusb -v WUSB54GS ID 13b1:0014 ? I gather you have a version 2
also on the back of device serial number starts with MI010F?
or something else (manufactured date?).
kernel version uname -a
ndiswrapper -v
confirm where you took the driver from (CD or otherwise)

Merry Xmas to you too!
I'm using a livecd so I'll not be able to get the lsusb -v details. As I have restarted my laptop and I'm now in Windows. I know I'm using the v2 because in Windows it says its v2 and my serial number starts with MI010F too. I have also loaded the v2.inf file. The manufacturing date on the router says 2006 06.
kernel is 2.6.18-rc5
ndiswrapper 1.18 But I think the newer version ones work as well. I tried using the newest version and got the same problem with wlan0 not working.

I took the inf files from the CD. The RNDIS and usb .sys files from the F5D7051.exe.

Let me know if you need any more details

Have you considered writing this as a how-to for either the Wiki or the Tutorials section? You've got most of the work done already and placing it in a couple of places besides this thread might be helpful.

I have thought of it
Actually I contributed to this howto

I know the thread is a bit of a mess, but I keep editing post 11 and 13

I do not see "much value" in making a "proper" howto,
since there is already one, and since I edit my old post.
(lake of time for now lets say)

By all mean if somebody got writting gift for howto
they could take the material here and submit

Well, considering that you've already helped a couple of people in this thread, and the thread as a whole has almost 9,000 views, I'd say you have an audience. Anyway, its good to know that you're keeping those posts current.

Confirmed working on WUSB54GSC

Just to add my thanks! This rocks hard.

My Dad picked me up the WUSB54GSC - Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with SpeedBoost for xMas so...

Grabbed the drivers from the website; WUSB54GSC_dr.zip
The .inf file was WUSB54GSC.inf

installed with a fresh build of ndiswrapper, then copied the win files (usb8023.sys and rndismp.sys) I grabbed from the F5D7051.exe download to the /etc/ndiswrapper/wusb54gsc/ folder.

No love, so added the /etc/udev/rules.d/99-custom.rules file and am good to go!

Again, thanks a TON!

i do agree, the guide on the ndis wiki isn't that great (too short). There is 2 method for it but it isn't very clear. Perhaps emailing the ndis wiki guys to edit it?

mmm I just realised that I it looks like that nidswrapper was not loaded so:

usbcore: registered new driver ndiswrapper
usb 1-1: bad CDC descriptors
...

I did load the same driver as before
"
* ndiswrapper sourceforge net
item 24, method 1
* Emmanuel_uk on this page (unzip F5D7051.exe (method 1);unshield x DATA1.CAB;unshield x DATA2.CAB)
* and other
"

I am very sorry, I am still very stuck I thought I knew how to install it!

Thank you for any help.

Hi Emmanuel_uk,

I tried ndiswrapper 1.33 and came back to the version 1.21 but it still not working. At least there is a error now.

# ndiswrapper -v

Do you have any idea what is the error 22?
