Re: trying to run this card on Mandriva 2007 Linux

It likely needs one of the linux 3rd party drivers. There are open-source drivers for several chipsets out there. With the card in your system, login as root and issue the command lspci and you will see all of the PCI devices on your system. Through process of elimination, get you can find the one which is the chipset for your card (it won't be Zonet, as there are several chipsets that are OEMed by vendors) and do a google search for drivers. You'll have to do some compile work, but most drivers have good documentation and FAQs, so be patient and RTM(s).

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 had the same problem, but due to legal issues there won't be any linksys drivers available for linux any time soon. What i did was to sell mine and buy a different one with full compatibility with both windows and linux.
