anyone picking up the thread. Thanks,

Hello Leonard
It looks like you might have to use ndiswrapper with this card.
It is thankfully not *that* difficult to set up on ubuntu, here is a
link you might find helpful:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper

in short,

sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 (or aptitude-get)
sudo m-a prepare
sudo m-a a-i ndiswrapper

you then need to copy the INF file windows provides (usually on the
network cards driver disk) someplace like $HOME/foo.inf
and then sudo ndiswrapper -i $HOME/foo.inf
sudo ndiswrapper -l will verify the driver is loaded
then load the module: sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

this is off the top of my head, so read up a little first...
good luck!

Default Fwd: Linksys WMP54G Wireles Adaptor Wont Work; Or I Don't Know How To

Thanks Peter,
I was geting a little edgy waiting for a response. I
am surprised that there are no linux drivers as I
mentioned lspci indicated it was a RaLink RT2561/RT61
802.11g PCI and they were in the modules lib for my
kernel. Even put them in the /etc/modules file to no
avail. There is a strange iwlwifi error in the logs
and dmesg with an ieee prefix in the output(see orig
post) and one saying eth0 set half-duplex and an error
each about eth0/wlan0 not being up. This message was
prefixed with:
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP) making me think it's an IP quad 4
address issue. My host file is messed up and could
stand for someone to send me one talored for one not
FQDN type. Googling got me the first line correct but
nothing so far for my computer's name, etc. There
should be a way to regenerat /etc/hosts file but
haven't found it googling. Here are other dmesg output
that's related I think:

loisabled Privacy Extensions
ieee80211_init:failed to initialize WME(err=-17)
ypbind failed after the timeout suggesting to me that
gatewire.2wire.net is not accepting what my computer
is offering. AAMOF, the 2Wire sight doesn't even show
the ubuntu machine only my paqvilion8370 which isn't
in the network now and they, now ATT, arent' any help.
I'm going to file your email in my Debian folder for
future reference as I not ready to give up yet; not
until I get my hosts file fixed and try again. If you
have any more thoughts please reply; now more
googling.
Thanks for the help,

Well List,
I've quit trying to fix the WMP54G card. Tried all
the drivers, even used a different kernel that had the
rt61 driver and got the ra0 interface recognized but
it seems to require IOv6 which 2WIRE doesn't supply.
My knowledge of wireless setup if limited(n othing
really) so I'll try to buy another supported card.

Would appreciate anyone having wifi pci card that is
working under gutsy to reply to the list or to me
directly with the model No. and version no. One
preferably that just works out of the box or with
minimal manual settings. Just visited man iwconfig
today for first time. I have all the @wire setup info
I need but no experience with iwconfig.
Any recommendations are desperately needed by me and
I will revview Ubuntu's howto on wireless network
setup now.
TIA,

Leonard Chatagnier
