No instances of prism54 or ndiswrapper before or after reboot. P54usb & mac80211 loaded on reboot.

Usb device gives green lights as of indication of connectivity.  I checked the card w/ a Windows 2000 installation and two lights came on, one solid the second blinking.

No lights come on w/ VL6.0-Light-Final.  I swaped plugs w/ crizer mini which was lit, still no lights.
It shows up as Bus 001 Device 002, w/ 'lsusb' command.

'iwconfig' output:
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

Based on my reading, I think we still need to add a firmware driver for the module to utilize. After this, I expect that the device should be recognized by the system with wireless extensions.  We need to determine if you have a 1st or 2nd generation device.  The verbose output from the following command should help. What is the output from 'lsusb -vvv'?

This is turning into quite an effort.  I really appreciate your help.  FYI, I have set up this machine foe dual boot between Windows & Linux.  I installed the Dell modem under Windows & was able to connect to access point w/ green lights on adaptor.

'lausb -vvv' output follows:

Okay, it looks to be a 2nd generation device which will require this driver:
http://jbnote.free.fr/prism54usb/data/firmwares/3887/2.5.8.0/2.5.8.0.arm

Download the above file. Then, as root, copy it to /lib/firmware (and /lib/hotplug/firmware if it exists) with a different filename (isl3887usb_bare) :
cp 2.5.8.0.arm /lib/firmware/isl3887usb_bare
cp 2.5.8.0.arm /lib/hotplub/firmware/isl3887usb_bare


At this point, I believe you should have all of the pieces in place to get the device functioning. It may require rebooting your system to get all modules and driver files working correctly. You can then check 'iwconfig' to determine if the device is functioning correctly (wlan0 and wmaster0 should appear along with lo and eth0).

ok renamed file 'isl3887usb_bare' w/ no extension in '/lib/firmware'

No/lib/hotplug/firmware directory exists
Still no green lights.

Your device is now being recognized by the system and shows that it has wireless extensions so you are almost set.  Let's not worry about the green lights at the moment. Once you've established a connection to a network they should appear.

I would suggest using wicd to finish configuring your network connection.  IIRC, you're using VL 6 Light and that should have wicd installed by default. Have a look in your menu under Network or Internet for the wicd option. It should open a windows for configuring your network access. If your wireless access point is broadcasting then it should show up as a connectable option in the wicd list.  Give it a go and let us know if you have any troubles getting connected to your network - it should be pretty straight-forward at this point.

You did it I'm conected.  I could have spent a month trying to figure this out myself.  Thanks so much for your advice and help!  I'm using the wireless connection to post this reply.

Thanks again!

One last question.
How do I mark this as solved?

That's great news!! I'm glad it all worked out, and glad you hung in there.

To mark this post as solved you should go back to your initial post, and then click the 'Modify' option in the top-right of the post.  From there you should be able to edit the post topic.
