linksys WUSB11 v2.6 setup on mandrake 9.1

OK to start thing off I am a complete newb to the linux world.

I'm just trying to get the internet setup on it first so I don't have to switch computers when I am having trouble on it.

Like I said I have the Linksys WUSB11 v2.6 and I think my kernel version is 2.4.21-0.13 I haven't installed any other packages/patches.

I have read the other topics about this card but I followed their directions to the 'T' with still no results.

Can someone start me from the beginning and walk me thru this?

Sorry mods if this should be in the newb forum.

Thank you,

I have a Seimens 1022 USB card on my SuSE 8.2 system. All I did was go to the wlan-ng website downloaded the latest sources from the 11 Mbps project, and compile. They have nice instructions that help. You will need your kernel sources installed, that should be a package that came with your distro.
After the drivers got intsalled things were a little quirky. I have to unplug my card before boot-up and then plug it back in after, letting hotplug find it. Then sometimes I have to run a little script that does the config stuff from the wlan readme. I don't fully understand it and there may be a fix but as things stand it works, so I'm not going to break it. Hope this helps..

you definately do not want the linux-wlan driver for a wusb11v2.6
i got my linksys to work on mandrake 9.1 with the berlios driver (which is based of the amtel driver- the linksys card uses this amtel chipset). you should be able to just download the driver, type make and make install in the extracted tar folder as root. type lsmod to see if your device is listed (as the way it looks in the readme that came with the tar) and then type iwconfig wlan0 (or whatever your device name is-such as eth0 or w/e)type ifconfig wlan0 and then type iwconfig wlan0 -essid (or whatever settings you want to declare for the card, such as your SSID or infrastructure(managed)/ad-hoc etc..)and be sure to type dhcpd -d if your using dhcp to get your ISP # n all similar type of numbers (if the command doesnt exist install the package from the mandrake package manager).
take not that i'm not telling you this as a tutorial but a guideline for what you'll need to do. so overall get the belios driver , download+extract it , and look at the readme file for it asap! its not hard!
