Question


HI there,

thats to everybody for this great tutorial - rlly is good.
Now onto my problem.

I'm running FC6, with a LinkSys WUSB54GSv2 USB Wifi adapter. It works fine once i've config'd it, but as soon as i reboot i need to do the
Code:
echo -n 1 > ...
thing.

Is there any way i can automate or stop this? As i'm wanting to get the system to auto-logon and run headless, so this is causing quite an issue.

Cheers
Fatmcgav

There is many ways, how about just adding the line to /etc/rc.local
(Might not be in the boot order you want?)

HI Emmanuel_uk,

cheers for the tip.

Whats the easiest way of gettin it set to load before the login-page, as i ultimatly want the system to run headless...
Could i do it just after ndiswrapper?

Cheers

I saw a post somewhere that recommended udev. The nice thing about udev is that I can change USB ports and it works automagically. Here's what I came up with:

/etc/udev/rules.d/wireless.rules:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Linksys Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with SpeedBooster", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/enableWireless.sh $kernel"


/usr/local/bin/enableWireless.sh:
#!/bin/sh

# Ensure that there is at least one argument.
if [ $# -lt 1 ] ; then
echo "Too few arguments passed to $0"
exit -1
fi

# Putting a '1' into this file overrides the kernel's erroneous denial
# of this device.
FILE="/sys/bus/usb/devices/$1/bConfigurationValue"

# Only put a '1' into the file if it is empty.
if [ "`cat $FILE`" == "" ] ; then
echo -n 1 > $FILE
fi

Enjoy

Well, thanks for saying thanks. It is appreciated
Not that a lot of credits goes to the ndiswrapper people really, not me, and also people who posted here.
Was were you are now 1 year ago, the best thing you can do is hang around
learn from other threads and help at the same time when the time comes.
It will be benefit the community :-)

I am still supposed to test the device under kernel 2.6.17-5mdv
Have not forgotten just short of time

Happy linux

sorry to dig this thready back outta the grave but now I'm having issues with a WUSB54GSC wireless adaptor. I have version 1.47 of ndiswrapper installed and it reports that the driver is installed and lists that the device (13b1:0026) is present. I have config_net_radio enabled in the kernel but when I do a modprobe of ndiswrapper dmesg reports that the module is loaded but I don't get a wlan0 interface. I also get a "usb 4-5: no configuration chosen from 1 choice" and I read all the posts about echoing '1' into the appropriate usb device bConfiguration value. I have done that but I still cannot get an interface after modprobing ndiswrapper. all I get from dmesg after modprobing ndiswrapper is "ndiswrapper version 1.47 loaded (smp=no)" and iwconfig reports "no wireless extensions". I really don't know where to go from here. it seems like everything is setup properly yet it still fails to give me an interface. I am running gentoo linux with a 2.6.21 kernel on a 32-bit machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated. also itll be hard for me to paste the output of anything since my linux box is not online but I will post any other info if need be.

I had similar issues that were solved by using different driver files.

See this thread on the Ubuntu forum for a howto, and post 3 for the driver links.
