having problems with Lynksis PCI Wireless Adaptor :(


First of all thanks for this forum, i use to read from the outside looking for help, and here i am..looking for your help

secondly i have Slackware 13 32Bit, intalled in a Dell (i don't know the model) pIV with 1Gb Ram

this is a very loooooong story, i'll try to be as brief as possible..

the problem is i can't connect to WiFi using a Lynksis Wireless-G PCI Adaptor, i followed two tutorials i found here, that's why i got the registrated...

Now i can't find them so i can't show which are, so the point is that after i use ndisrrapper and i install the rf64.inf (i think is the correct name) i followed all the steps but it gets stuck at the DHCP one i used the dhclient command and it didn't work either when i boot slackware it says something like that i have to initialize a rc.d script manually and before, it says eth0 interface gets timedout, the wird part is that now my network monitor shows two more network and the wpa replicant can't even scan them..

i must add, i still have windows just because is the one that's letting me get connected.. so i feel veeery frustrated using this "thing"

sorry it was too larhe

Hello,

Can you post the output of the following commands for me?
Code:
lsmod
lspci
ifconfig
iwconfig
Please use code tags also, thanks!

Cheers,

Josh

PS - Please use a spell check next time, and it is "Linksys," not "Lynksis."

Sorry for the late reply, I'm currently deployed and don't have much time to get online sometimes.......

But as far as your problem, try the following:
Code:
modprobe rt61
Don't forget to run that as root. If you get an error message, let me know. If you don't have that exact module, have a look here - http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/s...rt61/pkg/12.1/
I know the ones listed are not for slackware 13, but they might suffice for now, unless Eric has new packages available that I didn't see.

Cheers,

Josh
