DWL G122 with ural-linux


Hi everyone,
first of all sorry for my english.

I am trying to get a DWL G122 usb wireless adapter working on an iBook 14".
I've heard i can't use the ndiswrapper since i'm on ppc, so i found around this BSD driver port:

http://etudiants.insia.org/~jbobbio/ural-linux

and i downloaded it.
I am actually running a 2.6.12-rc6 kernel, and the module, following the prcedure explained in the README file, compiled well.
I can modprobe it, but even if i get both the wlan and the ural modules up, the card is not turning on (ie: no lights from the led it is supposed to come from).

I think that maybe i'm missing some crucial usb-networking module, but i can't figure out wich.

Can anyone who had experiecne with this card help me?
TIA

again sorry for my bad italian engligh

bye

eheh i know iwconfig wlan0 up, but the problem here is before: the card doesn't even power up.
i have no wlan* interfaces at all
It's like it's off and the kernel does not see it...
I can't understand what went wrong...

maybe i have to set something in the kernel?
thanks

UPDATE:
i've searched for the chipset, and it seems that the driver i used was for the B1 and later revisions of the dongle, since the A1 and A2 versions (i have A1) use a prism54 chipset.
I downloaded the firmware, installed hotplug, as said in the prism chipset support in the wlan section of the device drivers section of the kernel config, but anything i do i can't get the card to work.
it does not respond...

How does your
/proc/bus/usb/devices
look like?

Any other USB device work? If not, you have to confiture your kernel. How does your "kernel options" look like?

yes!
everithing else, from the usb flash pen to the usb mouse is working great!

i have finally made it and compiled the drivers found at http://prism54.org, i have hotplug installed and correctly configured (as saifd on the readme)
but when i try to load the module prism54 i get an:

usb 4-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
Loaded prism54 driver, version 1.2
kobject_register failed for prism54 (-17)
Call trace:
[c0007e00] dump_stack+0x18/0x28

[c003ca3c] sys_init_module+0x274/0x3a4
[c0004670] ret_from_syscall+0x0/0x4c

and it fails.
Nothing happens in dmesg except the notice that a new usb peripheral has been plugged/unplugged

Any ideas??
thanks

i see
so for now it seems the only way (and it uses the dongle in a reduced and limited way)...
well, i think i should have though about it twice when i decided buying a iBook.
The strange fact is: *everything else* is working perfectly, the battery lasts 4-5 hours, but i can't get a usb wireless stick wornking...

Thank you very much, but i must have missed that page!

Thanks again bye

Hello all,

I have an ibook 14" too and want to buy a Dlink DWL-G122. Does it work under MAC OS 10.4?

Are you ruining MAC OS 10.4? Or Linux? I want to get it working with KisMac. Anyone tried it?

Thanks,

Rob
