USRobotics 5416+slack 10 : how to install ?


I've got a US Robotics 5416 and Slackware 10.0. I tried everything (what i know from linux and that isn't a lot) to setup that wireless card. I can get everything what a card needs except he can't ping to the router, then i get "Destination Host Unreachable". So I tought maybe i need an Access Point, so i tried to setup an AP with iwconfig.

The command: iwconfig wlan0 ap (mac of the router)

But this didn't work. With that command i got an error that looks like this :

Error for Wireless request "Set Ap Address" (8B14)....

So now you know that, what do i have to do ?

I'm going to assume that you've used iwconfig and properly set up the card so that it can see your access point (post the output of iwconfig if you're not sure). Once you do that, you need to either request an IP address from a DHCP server or assign the wireless card a static IP address.

To request an IP address us dhcpcd wlan0 (assuming your card is wlan0).

If you want to assign and IP use ifconfig and route:

ifconfig wlan0 (replace with the IP you want the card to use)
route add default gw (replace with the IP address of your access point)

Well, after i posted this topic, i found some drivers from acx111. Before i had acx100 drivers, but they didn't fully support my card. Now it does work after a frustrating week of setting up that card.

Thanks for the help anyways.
