Question Knoppix 3.4 not detecting US Robotics Wireless PCI Card


I have a US Robotics PCI Wireless card which is not detected by Knoppix 3.4. This US Robotics card uses the Texas Instruments TNETW1130 chipset. I tried hwconfig in Knoppix and wlconfig but the crad was not detected.

Am I doing something wrong or is there something additional that can be done?

I thought I recognized that chipset name - more generally, that's the ACX111 chipset. Right, Knoppix doesn't support it, and as of yet, there is only a beta driver available for it. I have the earlier version of that chipset, ACX100 (which is 802.11b, not g like apparently the TNETW1130 is). Anyways, TI is evil and hasn't released any info on either chipset to developers (hence my signature), and so the driver has to be reverse-engineered. The team that made the good ACX100 driver is also working on the ACX111 - they say it kindof works, now, but still has a lot of bugs. They're your best bet. See this website: http://acx100.sourceforge.net/ . Try the driver, if it works, good, otherwise you probably have to just wait for them to work some more bugs out. And see this website for detailed instructions on if you have problems: http://www.houseofcraig.net/acx100_howto.php .
