Hi linksys doenot have the wireless drivers for linux but you can try the following steps:
-download the windows drivers. Extract them to c:\temp\linksys
- Now burn them or put them on a media or somthing so you can transfer these files over to linux (note: linux wont beable to extract the exe file)
- Download ndiswrapper for linux located at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=93482
- Now make sure you have all the development tools installed in fedora
- Now download dhcpcd from http://www.phystech.com/ftp/dhcpcd-1.3.22-pl4.tar.gz
- log into your linux box as root
- Now make make sure all the files (*gz files, and linksys driver files) are in the root partition on the linux machine (/root/wireless_driver) if "wireless_driver" is not there make the directory (which u will have to do) "mkdir /root/wireless_driver"
- now at the command prompt (terminal) go into the "wireless_driver" directory "cd /root/wireless_driver"
- now type "tar xvfpz ndiswrapper-0.12.tar.gz"
- "cd ndiswrapper-0.12"
- "make install"
- "cd .."
- "tar xvfpz dhcpcd-1.3.22-pl4.tar.gz"
- "cd dhcpcd-1.3.22"
- "./configure"
- "make && make install"
- "cd .."
- "source /etc/profile" (note: you might want to edit root's .bashrc and add source /etc/profile there, some how fc3 doesnt have root source /etc/profile for some reason)
- "cd /root/wireless_driver/WMP54GS_20040423/Drivers"
- "ndiswrapper -i BCMWL5.inf"
- "ls /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmwl5" u should get a list of alot file in here
- "modprobe ndiswrapper"
- "dmesg wlan0" show see wlan0 if its there your good if not then somthings wrong - please post everything thats comes out of dmesg "dmesg > demout"
- now for a little script open your favorite text editor and copy the following code:
#Sample ndiswrapper script - By: Derrick Rose
#Load ndiswrapper module
echo "Starting Ndiswrapper Driver..."
/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper
#Setup Essid
echo "Setting up ESSID..."
iwconfig wlan0 essid "your essid here"
#Setup WEP Key if you have one
#Uncomment below for WEP
#echo "Setting up KEY..."
#iwconfig wlan0 key yourkeyhere
#Setting up DHCP on wlan0
echo "Starting DHCP on wlan0 [ 10 sec timeout ]"
dhcpcd -t 10 wlan0

- the script above will setup your wireless card for. Now save this to a file in roots directory (/root) called wireless
- "chmod +x wireless"
- to run manually type "./wireless" as root
- If you want to automaticly load on startup do the following
- "cat wireless >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local"
restart the computer..adn then check

I have a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network card on my Toshiba Satellite M50. One fine day, it was working fine on the network at home, and then suddenly got disconnected, and soon after stopped being...


I have the same card with Tecra A4. It was working fine with a D-Link 615 wireless router then for no reason it stop working I was able to detect my wirless network but no communication session started between my card and the router. I restrat the router and change the OS fro Linux to XP but still I have the same problem.

At the end I notice that in simple words my card cannot talk at all with the router. So I went to the router wirless settings and change the protocol from:
mixed 802.11 N, mixed 802.11 G, mixed 802.11 B
to only
802.11 G and 802.11B

Then it works fine onb both Linux and XP

Need an updated Linux driver for WF748-UIc


http://zd1211.ath.cx/wiki As per that website, the drivers are now included in the Kernel since 2.6.18. If you're manually compiling your kernel, you can find the module in the menuconfig of the linux kernel source (ie in the `make menuconfig` menu) in: Device Drives -> Network device Support -> Wireless LAN (non-hamradio) -> Wireless Lan Drivers -> USB ZD1201 based Wireless device support
