Realtek 8180 wireless adapter problem
I'm having quite a bit of trouble getting my wireless card working on linux (Knoppix 3.3, kernel version 2.4.24-xfs). I've looked through the boards and have gathered this is a common problem. Unfortunately, none of the solutions seem to work for me. I've a feeling this has to do with the fact that Realtek has the closed source portion of the driver compiled for the 2.4.18 and 2.4.20 kernels only. Is there any known way to get the card working on 2.4.24 or is there any chance that there will be a new driver out in the near future? If not, does anyone have any suggestions as to which card I should get to replace it for less than $60? Also, incase it matters, 'lspci' reports it as an 8180 chip, but 'cardctl ident' says it's an 8139.
