I can't find a linux driver for this adapter anywhere. I plan on installing Fedora Core 2, but won't if this driver is not available. Anyone happen to have this driver? Any other suggestions? Different distro's that already works with it?

Thanks

The file it trys to download there is an exe file. I don't believe that is a linux driver as exe's are for windows. It also says

Download Now...

Linksys WUSB54G Wireless-G USB Network Adapter Driver 0.6.0.0 Windows

I tried using ndiswrapper before, but I got some weird errors when running "make install" It could just be that I'm totally new to Linux. Thanks a lot for trying though.

That is a 30-day trial. I would have to install driver loader then load the WUSB54G driver through it. Even if I pulled that off with my limited knowledge of Linux it would most likely only work for 30 days before they wanted me to buy it. Ndiswrapper does the same thing for free. I just didn't have success installing it. I was just looking to see if anyone had happened across an actual linux made driver for it. Don't kill yourself looking for one. Don't make this a priority, there are people out there with bigger problems.

Nope.. No linux drivers available for the WUSB54G, or at least that I know..

The WUSB54G has a prism chipset which has drivers available but the USB stuff to link the chipset to the computer has yet to be written.

You can keep your eyes on http://prism54.org for a release, but till then the NDIS wrapper is the way to go..  Im actually just going to install the 30 day free trial to make my life easy.  And then after that, if the driver is out, ill switch, and if not, ill try to get the NDIS wrapper working..

Good luck!

For some odd reason Cisco/Linksys refuses to release the source code for this specific device.  There is another alternative, you would need to unpack the contents of the archive to a directory on your linux system, presumably root, download the source for ndiswrapper, http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net follew the instructions and viola!  You've got your linksys wusb54g adapter working.

Might want to check dates before you respond to something. This was posted over 6 monthos ago. Since then I have installed Fedora Core 3 on a computer and got the internet working with Ndiswrapper. Linux is great.

Thanks for your intrest though.

I'm having a problem getting the WRT54g workign in linux. I got ndiswrapper installed and the driver in there but when I check on it. It tells me the driver is in stalled but the device isn't. It's plugged ina nd i don't knwo wif here is a way to somehow manually mount it in linux (I'm a long time Windows developer and power user but a real linux nub).

Any ideas?

Some more info:
I'm using a IBM thinkpad i1400
Fedora Core 3
kernal: 2.6.9-1.667

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I was able to set this card with my Linux box (which is Debian, but it's not important).

I used the ndiswrapper and a Windows XP driver to do this. It was helpful to look at the ndiswrapper installation Wiki. Until then I was convinced that my WUSB54g card was using a Prism GT chipset, which it was not! According to the Wiki, Linksys has changed the chipset in version 4 of the card to Realtek.

The second thing was not to use the original Linksys drivers. With them the card would indeed be seen and react to some commands, but it would not be possible to establish any connection with it.

One has to download Ralink 2500 drivers and unpack them with a Windows comp (or using Wine).

It's quite complicated, but it does really work.
