Lynksys wireless card for Desktp PC running Ubuntu Linux 7.04 Fiesty Fawn wont connect

Ok... i just got a new wireless card, its th Lynksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter Model No.WMP54G

I put it in and booted linux. The icon shows up in the system tray and when i right click the Enable Wireless is already enabled. i left click and all networks within range show up fine. When i click my connection it takes about half a min trying to connect then just stop and goeas back to the normal icon with the 2 computers and a triangle withe exclamation mark symbol in middle icon.

Why is this happening? Any help please?

I have tried toinstall ndisWrapper but keep getting errors every time i try to run te "Make/Make install" command.

Here is the output form e make install command :

root@system366-desktop:/home/system366/Desktop/Linux Net Setup Tools/ndiswrapper-1.52.tar.tar_FILES/ndiswrapper-1.52# make
make -C driver
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/system366/Desktop/Linux Net Setup Tools/ndiswrapper-1.52.tar.tar_FILES/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver'
make -C /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-15-generic SUBDIRS=/home/system366/Desktop/Linux Net Setup Tools/ndiswrapper-1.52.tar.tar_FILES/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-15-generic'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `Net'. Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-15-generic'
make[1]: *** [default] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/system366/Desktop/Linux Net Setup Tools/ndiswrapper-1.52.tar.tar_FILES/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Any help would be much appretiated as Linux is pretty useless to me without the Internet.

Ubuntu 8.10 wont detect my wireless card

You can try looking in the manufacturer website to see if they have made a driver for Linux. Actually, most Linux distros have a nice set of drivers, but not all hardware out there have good Linux support.Surprisingly, Ubuntu 8.10 detected one CompUSA USB wireless adapter for which they don't have the XP drivers.

Connecting an adapter to laptop running linux

Yes/No. Dlink has no support for Linux. Ubuntu should install generic drivers but it may work or just epic fail.

Acer one not finding any server

Check the wireless card connections physically. I received a Aspire one that had a wire disconnected from the card itself. if that is in tack find out what driver you are using for your card using "lsmod" see if there are alternatives. Try a live boot USB linux and see if your wireless card functions under that if it doesn't it is hardware if it does it is software. I would switch to another linux like sabayon or ubuntu eeepc versions they function better. I run Sabayon on both of my netbooks. Ubuntu ha sbetter support though.

I have a Belkin wireless notebook card which I would like to use with Linux Ubuntu.

can you get a model spec? ubuntu is one of the faster developing linux flavors out, but since the driver has to be written based on demand instead of just having it to have it (like microsoft), things dont get done. you can try looking for a hardware compatibility list (HCL) for ubuntu and see if that model wireless card will work with your linux. if not, you might just have to wait until someone develops the drivers for it.

let me know if this helps.

Wireless card

I had the same problem, the thing is that due to some legal issues, there isn't any compatibility with that card in linux, so, what i did was to sell my old card and bought a new one compatible with linux and windows.

Linux Connection to WGA54G

first, check your cable. loose cable connection often lead the cause of that error. second. check the lan card of your linux pc. If your pc is a desktop type pc, try to replace the lan card and . Make sure that the lan card is detected by your system. try to connect on the internet again.

A Simple Thanks is Good Enough
