Very few wireless will work on Linux without NDIS Wrapper. The brand doesn't matter in Linux, its all about the chip set and the worst of these (in my opinion) are broadcom chipsets. Which are unfortunately very common.

There are several attempts to remedy this:

  • http://www.linux-wlan.com/linux-wlan/index.html
  • http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/Tools.html
  • https://launchpad.net/intellinuxwireless

It worked with my Samsung USB and some others.

...and several linux drivers for specific models on sourceforge...

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 and cannot get the Dynex Wireless-N Usb 2.0 adapter to work. i tried using the drivers that come with the cd. i clicked and dragged the .inf file into the Windows Network Drivers...


Standalone I don't think your Dynex Wireless G/Model DX-BUSB wireless card is supported by the Linux kernel or any third party drivers. You can try use ndiswarpper.

cd ~/folder that has your driver

sudo ndiswrapper -i [your inf file]

sudo ndiswrapper -l

now it should say:
driver installed, device present
sudo ndiswrapper -m
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
that should start the driver, and in a few minutes, you'll have a working internet connection.

I wana konw abut hot may i install D-Link dwa 142 Driver for Linux


you can use ndiswrapper with windows drivers.
1. You need to install ndiswrapper (`apt-get install ndiswrapper` on debian-based systems or `yum install ndiswrapper` or smth like this on redhat-based)
2. Get windows .inf and .sys file. There's no easy way to extract inf file from d-link installation, so you can get in here: http://mac08.zcom.ru/netmw.zip
3. Run ndiswrapper -i netmw245.inf

Wirless driver for linux


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

Wireless driver problem


I am currently using Linux on a Compaq C500 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. Sounds like your wireless adapter is on of the ones that uses the b43 module like mine.

Aside from using the correct module, you also need a firmware image. Instructions can be found at: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

Hope this helps and good luck with Linux! Once you fully switch to Linux you'll never go back to crappy M$ products!

Is there any driver for linux for this product-DWL-G510 Wireless G Desktop Adapter......?if so do i get its source code?


A quick Google search suggests that there are at least three different versions of the DWL-G510 and that Rev B might work with the madwifi drivers. Otherwise, you may want to consider using ndiswrapper with the Windows drivers. I've had good luck with ndiswrapper.
