I beleive the linux driver for this to be RT2870 but I could not get that to work either

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Chris

Undo everything you did, and run VLwifi. Follow the prompts, it will set it up for you

Thanks

I'll try it again but that was my first route - from memory it said it couldn't find a wireless interface and asked if I wanted in add a ndiswrapper - once added I think it than repeated that it could not find a wireless interface.

I'll rest and try again.

Chris

Double checked - says can't find driver for device do I want to try ndiswrapper, point it to the ndiswrapper and get "no wirless cards found"...

Which version of the card are you using? There are two drivers that can be used.

WUSB100v1 use rt2870
WUSB100v2 use rt3070

From what I've seen, you shouldn't need ndiswrapper to use these drivers.

I'm using the rt2870 - it's from the original disk, XP version.,

I'll download and try the other....

Just checked the back and it is a v2 so I'll give the other one a shot.

Also, what do you mean by I shouldn't have to use the ndiswrapper? That tt should plug and play (ish) or that I can modprobe rt3070 or that VLwifi should find it?

Cheers

Is this your USB device? it seem it does not have a official linux driver....but you can try to download the XP driver and use ndiswrapper.....

http://www.linksysbycisco.com/APAC/en/support/WUSB100

or you can try to download rt2870/rt3070 linux driver and compile it by yourself

Thanks and yup that is the one.

All the stuff in the orginal post is me trying to get the ndiswrapper to work after following the given instructions and I was hoping the ndiswrapper was going to be the solution.

I have the drive already downloaded but was unsure if it was safe to go ahead and compile it - even more so as the only instruction on it were for Ubuntu and not Vector.

In regard to the ndiswrapper, it installs and appears to attach to the USB however ifconfig brings up no mention wireless interface.

Thanks

If you're using the Linux driver, there is no need to use ndiswrapper. Just get rid of that idea totally.

Snag the linux driver for your card and compile it for your machine. Then you should be able to detect the card via vlwifi.

Thanks - I'll compile the driver.

Should I just follow the instructions in the above Ubuntu link? - Not sure if this stuff is distro specific or not.

Pretty much.. I haven't found much difference, if any, when doing the actual compile. However, this thread shows some additional information that will most likely be helpful in getting you up and running.

I think I'm going to have to conceed that I am not very good at this - if only I'd bought the D-Link...

Anyway, I thought I'd compiled  - unfortunaltey the above offered links appear to be a bit out of date verses the current driver download, but I think I managed to crib it together a little however...

Code:
root:# modprobe rt3070sta
FATAL: Error inserting rt3070sta (/lib/modules/2.6.27.12/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt3070sta.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

Code:
root:# dmesg
.....
rt3070sta: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel.
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_alloc_urb
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_free_urb
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_register_driver
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_put_dev
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_get_dev
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_submit_urb
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_control_msg

rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_kill_urb
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_buffer_free
rt3070sta: Unknown symbol usb_buffer_alloc
....

I'm guessing I've missed a param somewhere...any ideas?
