Linksys WPC54G v2 54Mbps
- Chipset: Texas Instruments ACX 111
- pciid: 104c:9066
- Driver: Linksys ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/wpc54gv2_driver_utility_v2.02.zip
linux-2.6.8-gentoo kernel, ndiswrapper 0.10.Kept having kernel panic (interrupt-related) upon module load until I set CONFIG_PCI_MSI=y (and unset CONFIG_4KSTACKS, just in case.) Also, used
ndiswrapper -i LSTINDS.INF
(NOT lsbcmnds.inf). Works with 64 and 128-bit WEP. Sometimes need to repeat config info (and commit) repeatedly, else driver & card will ignore requested setup. Also works with Gentoo 2.6.9-r9, ndiswrapper 0.12 and drivers that came from CD.
NEW USER NOTE 12/30/05 by -JSK-: I had lots of problems getting the settings to take with this card and the above Windows driver. I finally found that the settings were timing and order dependent. Here is how I got the card to stick in Managed mode with 128 bit WEP and open authentication:
ifconfig wlan0 essid $ESSID mode ad-hoc sleep 1 iwconfig wlan0 key $KEY open sleep 1 iwconfig wlan0 key open iwconfig wlan0 key on sleep 3 iwconfig wlan0 essid $ESSID mode managed sleep 1 iwconfig wlan0 key $KEY open sleep 1 iwconfig wlan0 key open sleep 15 ifconfig $DESIRED_IP_MASK_BROADCAST_ETC up
I know it's a hack, but this script works every single time for me. Before, life was miserable. On debian, you can put this in a shell script and add a "pre-up" line in your interfaces file instead of using the "wireless" options. YMMV.
Working fine on Ubuntu Breezy Badger (kernel 2.6.12) using ndiswrapper 1.9 / ndiswrapper-utils 1.7 and lstinds.inf driver. -- Johnmxl 10:45, 13 February 2006 (PST)
Ndiswrapper is not needed. In Ubuntu Dapper (and probably in other Linux distributions as well) this card is supported natively with the acx driver.
