Hi everybody,

I am new here, and have just installed VL 7.0 Light on my Compaq Presario 14XL250, bought in year 2000. My laptop has a Celeron 600MHz chip, 184M RAM + 8 RAM for the Video (64 original + 128 added), Trident Cyberblade video card, Chipset VIA PLE133

Anyway, with linux I normally use a Ralink external wi-fi card, which - as you know - doesn't work with VL. As far as I know it is possible to overcome the problem installing CENI, but cannot find it in the Slackware package repository. Is CENI available in some repository?

Sadly enough I am very bad in using the command line and putting the nose in the system.

Thanks!

I just found this http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=15434.0 which is not really promising...

Any step further in the meanwhile? Is there any other network manager I could try? wicd doesn't work...

Alot of RA chipsets are now natively supported.

Please post the name, make, model and version number
of the wireless card you have.

Thanks for your answer, Bigpaws.

It is a SparkLAN WL-685R. On the datasheet you can read it has a Ralink RT257WF chipset, which, as far as I know, belongs to the "family" of Ralink Technology RT2500.

It never worked on OS which only had wicd. It works fine with Puppy Linux and AntiX, if it can be of some help.

Wicd is only a gui front end.

First as root type:

lspci -vv

Look at that output and paste relating wireless info.

Then try:

ifconfig

Post the results if showing anything other than

eth0 or l0.

Good day Bigpaws,

I posted ANYTHING I got following your hints, but cannot detect any trace of the wireless card, am I wrong?

Thanks for your time

Post output in code tags from terminal (codetag is hashmark tab in response toolbar)
Code:
su -c "hwinfo --netcard"

Code:
su -c "hwinfo --wlan"

To get hwinfo working in Vector Linux (because you probably don't have it installed. My post on this also.

http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=16830.msg93688#msg93688

I run ceni in AntiX. You are not going to get a connection even with Ceni till ifconfig -a picks up a wireless interface (eg: wlan0, eht1,rao). I found it very hard to read your readouts in bold text and no code tags. It is hard to make any sense out of little and biiiiiig text that I have to scroll through in browser to read.

Lastly. I run inxi in Vector also. http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=16789.0

Code:
inxi -N
Network:   Card-1: Ralink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI driver: rt61pci
           Card-2: Intel 82566DM-2 Gigabit Network Connection driver: e1000e

Plus I use http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/ in all my Linux distro installs for recognizing and troubleshooting hardware issues also.

Also>Have you looked at http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=1282.0

Thank you, rokytnji, but to be honest with you I don't know what you are talking about   Undecided

When on terminal I write su -c "hwinfo --netcard" or su -c "hwinfo --wlan" I don't get any result   Huh Embarrassed  I am sure I am doing something wrong, but don't understand what...  Undecided

Thanks anyway

 Grin That's OK. My wife says the same thing.  So far you show no wireless card of any kind on your gear. I was just trying to help find what wireless gear was showing up in Vector Linux. I have had sooooo much practice getting my wireless and other linux users wireless to work that practice has made perfect for me. But I understand how you can look at my posts and go WTF.

Hi rokytnji!

We guys NEVER understand women, so it is fine if they don't understand us  Wink

I think this time I was a bit more successful with my laptop  Grin

This time I booted the system with the netcard already plugged in, and have the impression it was recognised by the system. Could you please double-check?

while here didn't make anything fruitful... what am I missing?

Code:
root:# lshw -C network
bash: lshw: command not found

root:# su -c "hwinfo --wlan"
bash: hwinfo: command not found

root:# -c "hwinfo --wlan"
bash: -c: command not found

root:# su -c "hwinfo --netcard"
bash: hwinfo: command not found

root:# su -c hwinfo --netcard
su: unrecognized option '--netcard'
Usage: su [options] [LOGIN]

Options:
  -c, --command COMMAND         pass COMMAND to the invoked shell
  -h, --help                    display this help message and exit
  -, -l, --login                make the shell a login shell
  -m, -p,
  --preserve-environment        do not reset environment variables, and
                                keep the same shell
  -s, --shell SHELL             use SHELL instead of the default in passwd


root:# su -c hwinfo --wlan
su: unrecognized option '--wlan'
Usage: su [options] [LOGIN]

Options:
  -c, --command COMMAND         pass COMMAND to the invoked shell
  -h, --help                    display this help message and exit
  -, -l, --login                make the shell a login shell
  -m, -p,
  --preserve-environment        do not reset environment variables, and
                                keep the same shell
  -s, --shell SHELL             use SHELL instead of the default in passwd

root:# su -c 'hwinfo --wlan'
bash: hwinfo: command not found

root:# su -c 'hwinfo --netcard'
bash: hwinfo: command not found




In the end, there was something looking good...

Code:
root:# dmesg|grep wlan0

root:# readlink /sys/class/net/wlan0/device/driver/module
../../../../module/rt2500usb

root:# grep pae /proc/cpuinfo
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 sep mtrr pge mca cmov pse36 mmx fxsr sse up


... if I am not wrong.

What d'you reckon?

Code:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 148f:2570 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2570 Wireless Adapter

That is your card. Yay.

Looks like the driver is loaded also maybe.

Code:
root:# readlink /sys/class/net/wlan0/device/driver/module
../../../../module/rt2500usb

Now try

Code:
ifconfig -a

and see what spits out.

This is the outcome... is it a good digestion?  Wink

Code:

No, rokytnji, I am not "almost" there: I am replying using my laptop with Vector! It is terribly slow, but works!

Thanks mate!
