« on: June 06, 2013, 05:00:00 pm »

I recently purchased a wireless N 150USB Adapter (model DWA-125) from D-LINK, and what I want to know is this - Is it possible to obtain the driver(s) for it, and if so, where can I find it/them?

My current operating system is Vector Linux 7.0.

You forgot the lsusb and for good measure the lsusb -t command readout with the adapter plugged in with a reboot so the kernel picks it up.

Looks like rt2800usb   is what is being used but above commands will show more info on what is going on.

I would also run the ifconfig -a command and post it here also.

But that is just me.

Sorry about that, but here is the 'lsusb' result:

doctor:$ lsusb

And the result for ifconfig:

wlan1 is showing up as your wireless interface. I am surprised you can't connect with it.

If using wicd. Put wlan1 in wireless preferences in wicd and then hit the refresh button. if using wpa. Use the properties button for entering password next to your router that shows up.

For manual connecting from terminal

http://forum.vectorlinux.com/?topic=1282.0

use wlan1 instead of wlan0 in the commands suggested.
