Wireless Card Not detecting network


hi, I just installed Mandrake and I cant seem to get my wireless card to detect any available networks (my wireless router). I installed the windows driver using the wrapper type thing linux has. The card shows up in the hardware manager, and its in Managed mode. Any suggestions?

knop it

Hey man, if you want to find out for sure if that wireless card is any good before you throw it out and buy a new one, get a copy of knoppix cd live, its free on the net, or you can buy it and they ship it pretty fast. linuxcentral.com is a good site, it'll verify all devices for you, has some testing utilities in it you wont find anywhere else. If your wireless works with knoppix, then your OS bootloader is fudging up.

You have to tell us which card to have some help.
Have you looked here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/index.php?cat=10
As the hardware is detected, you should not be too far..

This should help you get things going: http://www.houseofcraig.net/acx100_howto.php. Take it step by step and it's not that bad, although it looks intense!

This is the chipset in the card.
It seems your card is a DLINK?
Looks like Texas Instruments is not giving enough instructions on how to use their chipset...

Still it seems that people manage to make it work.

You have to look here :

http://acx100.sourceforge.net/

On LQ: choose your card in
http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/showcat.php?cat=133
or search in the forums.

Also this may be helpfull:

Try first without wep, without dhcp (use a Static IP)
Set the ESSID and try to ping your router

Good Luck
