Linux drivers for Wireless USB Adapter


Ok I just installed Mandrake 10 but I can't go on the internet. I connect to the network via a Linksys USB Wireless Netowork Adapter. The cd came with the Drivers for Windows but not for Linux(as always). So I checked the Linksys website and found they released their code to all their drivers so I'm pretty sure there has to be a Linux port. Can somone help me find them. And how do you go about installing the drivers?

the adapter is:

Linksys Wireless B USB Network Adpater

Model No:

WUSB11

this depends on what version of wusb11 u have. if its 1.1, then there is no driver. if its 2.1 or above, then yes there is a driver. its the Atmel driver. i think its in mandrake wireless setup tool or something. and if not, do a google search and and download, then build it.

How do I find out which version of the WUSB11 I have?

EDIT: Never Mind I just found out. I have:

Linksys Wireless-B USB Network Adapter v2.8

Does Mandrake have the drivers for this? Or do I have to download and build them?

If that does not have drivers for Linux I also have a Siemens SpeedStream 1022 Wireless USB Adapter I can also use. On the box it says it is compatible with Linux but the drivers may or may not be included, avalible, or required. Are there any Linux drivers for this. I searched google but found few answers. I really need help on this I want to get Linux online by tonight.

in mandrake, try using the Atmel driver, if there is one, or use the wlan-ng driver, which it does have. I dont know about ur 2.8, i do know that the Atmel is compatible with 2.6, and u should try it.

there are two drivers that should work Atmel and BerliOS
i dont know whether they are in mandrake, but its definitely possible to do it from source, and its not that hard to compile it from source. It takes around 20 min usualy.

I was doing some research and it seems the Atmel drivers don't work with the 2.8. Any idea if there are drivers that work with the SpeedStream.

Ok it seems the SpeedStream 1022 uses the same Prism technology as the Linksys v2.5. I am not sure if Mandrake has the Prism drivers. Ill have to check.

Sadly I was not able to get it to work. But I did find out I have another WUSB11 in this house and its a v3.0. Will 3.0 work with Linux?

u should be a little bit more patient, and im positive that mandrake has the prism driver. have u tried using the mandrake hardware configuration program? it should be there and work easily.
