Angry linksys wusb11 2.6 on redhat 9


Good evening,

I've spent the past week trying to configure my linksys wusb11 v2.6 on my redhat 9 box.

I finally got the kernel development stuff working with the atmel wlan drivers. I'm still having problems with it though. When I run depmod -a, I get

Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/deivers/usb/usbvnet5.o and the same error for usbvnet5a.o and usbvnet5_2958.o.

Additionally, nothing is claiming the wireless drivers but I think that the problem may be solved when I can get these errors out of the way.

Also, if anybody knows of a tutorial that can provide step by step instructions, it would be pretty awesome.

Help... someone?

You might try looking at my post "NOOB's guide to rtl8180 on RH9"

The post is using a different wireless adapter than yous, but is sounds like the process my be similar.

no, unfortunately, the problem is different (most likely) i've been trying to solve the problem for about 3 months, with about 34 different drivers, and i found that the closest i came (it works, but isn't recognised as an internet connection, so it doesn't really) it is a different chipset, and it requires intersil support (ugh) the one on atmelwlandriver.sourceforge.net doesn't support intersil, but one of the "snapshots" does, download it.

Find Modules.conf, add one line onto the end, saying "Alias usb-controller uhci"

Un-tar the downloaded file into "/wusb11/atmelwlandriver/"

CD into this directory

Type "make realclean"

type "make config"

Answer "y" to only "Install USB drivers?" and an intersil support (NOT 503a RFMD, the one after it), the rest "n"

type "Make clean all install" IN ONE LINE

Look in the readme section titled "Startup" in the Atmelwlandriver folder to customize SSID, Encryption, and everything you want/need to

Sorry it was so lengthy, but i find that otherwise people tell me i wasn't clear enough.

alright, I must still be doing something wrong.
I went though every single step that you gave me and i tried both of the step by step instructions and they didnt work .

I can get the snapshot with Intersil to compile, it installs fine. I can modprobe usbvnet, it returns nothing. is modprobe supposed to say anything when it does find a successful ... modprobe? but yeah, so the problem might be in that. I can't think of any other place where I might have screwed up. I modified modules.conf, I got the right snapshot, i cleaned and realcleaned, i put everything in one line, and I selected the right drivers.

it's not making the connection where it should display the device in iwconfig.

currently, iwconfig returns this:

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

and ifconfig returns this:


eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:B8:10:99:BE
inet addr:192.168.0.6 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

but it doesnt even see the wlancard.

if anybody wants to ssh in and take a look for themselves, feel free, just comment me and ill give you the login.

goodnight.
