Linksys wusb11 2.6


Hi. My distro is Debian 3.1 Sarge. I found out I had to download the Atmelwlandriver (sorry, I dont have enough posts to place a URL here.) in order to make my Linksys 2.6 adapter work. However, after installing the patch, I still could not connect to the internet, and the adapter was still not recognised by Sarge. Is there any other way that I can connect to the internet with this adapter? Thanks.

Guys, I have the same problem. I really want to totally switch to linux, but because of this wireless device I can't :-(
I'd really appreciate if you could help me in solving this problem. I currently have kernel 2.6
Or if you don't know how to help me out, maybe you could tell me linux destribution that would work with this device? I think that debian is the best, but maybe I'm not ready for it yet :-(

Well, I know v4 is supported by ndiswrapper, so I'd assume you can make v2.6 work as well. Ndiswrapper can be a headache for newbies, but it can also be a breeze if all goes well. If you don't know what it is, it allows you to use a windows driver for your wireless card in linux. You can see http://www.angelfire.com/linux/hardwire/wireless.html for more information about it. It gives links to instructions, screenshots, etc. Hope it helps!

The whole wireless issue is driving me nuts!
I hope I get it running myself, as a programmer I really want to explore Linux.
And see what it has to offer.

Once you learn to use ndiswrapper, you can have your wireless card up and running in any distro in less than ten minutes. It's the learning curve that you lose some skin on... Hang in there, I spent a week on my first ndiswrapper install. Now, I can do it in any distro in less than ten minutes.

Try Kanotix!

Hi, guys! For those who (like me) want an easy way out, try Kanotix! The drivers are already installed, and all you have to do is pop in the cd and do a hard drive installation. This distro uses kde as default.
