LinkSys help (WUSB12)

Finally got around to installing a Linux distro on a partition of my hard drive. The only thing I can't get working is my network adapter (LinkSys model WUSB12). I found a post about it here via Google, but the only help was a link to a patch of some sort, and the web site required username/password.

So I was hoping maybe someone here could help me figure out how to get it working. It was detected during the installation, but it fails to load when I boot, and when I try to activate it while in RH9, it says it's not connected and to check the cables, I'm guessing it's because I don't have drivers or something.

All help greatly appreciated.

you need the Linux-wlan-ng driver. WUSB12 uses a Prism2 chipset. Check out the page at for the driver and more information.

Hopefully that is helpful.

Excelllent, looks like it should do the trick. I had downloaded variations of that, I believe, but after several pages of Google search results, never got that official page. Hopefully my next question will be posted through Konqueror.

Did you happen to get your WUSB12 working then?

I've got one I'm trying to get to work in debian. No luck so far after 2 days worth of reading/trying. Frustrating to say the least!
