This is typically because while several distributions of Linux now provide the driver module, they do not provide the necessary firmware in their download editions, the boxed versions of some of these distros correct this problem. This method also will allow you to upgrade to newer versions of the driver as improvements are made to it. Once you have it up and running, use the search facility if there is one and search on “kernel-source” which seems to be nearly universal as the package name for the kernel sources, once found, install it. Your info regarding the other fields will most likely be different than mine, that’s ok, all we’re looking for here is association. If you are able to search the filenames contained within the packages as opposed to the package names themselves then search on “gcc” to determine what package to install for the compiler. I wil keep coming back for sure.

First, seek help on using the package manager in the documentation that came with your distro, or perhaps a “help” menu item or button on the package manager itself. Successful output looks similar wineows this:. You may be wondering what’s going to happen should you decide to shut down the computer or reboot it.

First, let’s see if a driver is already installed, so type: This is a single, compressed file, called a “tarball”. Use the following link to download the same, recent source version that I’m using and have tested and verified to be functional with my devices which may not necessarily be the absolute ‘latest’ version.

Once you have become the root user, I would caution you to not go outside the bounds of the instructions below, you can and should experiment with commands as your “normal” user, but don’t experiment as root.


Would you use this site again?: If the lspci -n command comes back with something like “command not found” then most likely you have not used the su – command properly to “become” the root wcx100, you may have used only the “su” part of that command without the ” -“, which will not work the way we need it to. Be sure to substitute your “normal” username and the correct filename rc. widnows

Now, see if you have achieved association by typing iwconfig again. You may not have all of them in your Windows’ driver, just copy the ones that you do have.

The “” in that command indicates how many lines at the end of the log you’d like to see and you can adjust it to suit you. If not, look for packages related to “development”, verify which contains the compiler, and install.

On some distributions the command would be: So, when your card comes up and you’re enjoying the wireless freedom, I strongly encourage you to go to the acx project’s forum and thank the developers for all the many hours they’ve freely given to make this driver possible. There are particular operating systems known to have problems with Ti Acx Wlan Adapter: Here we see mine: If it is listed as so click on it and delete windws. Once you have prepared the kernel source, return to acz100 acx top-level source directory, type: Most of the improvements in the windowa are targeted at these devices, winxows far more importantly, WEP for these devices is supported only in this latest version: Unless you’re using Knoppix, I don’t recommend that you solve the missing kernel-source issue by downloading what looks like a match from http: Once you have your wireless and networking settings recorded and the source code and firmware tarballs in hand, if you are not already booted to Linux, go ahead and do so.


If you have achieved association, but your pings to your wireless access point still come back “unreachable”, then possible causes are:.

If, instead you see ” If something here fails see the troubleshooting section for this. Remember, this guide applies only to version 0. Next, verify the presence of the correct version of the kernel source, type: Association between your wireless access point and your wireless card windoqs very similar to having the wire plugged into a regular, wired ethernet card.

I have the same question 6. There is an outside chance that your chosen distro doesn’t use packages at all and therefore there qindows no package manager Linux From Scratch LFS comes to mindif that’s the case, and you’re new to Linux, then I respectfully suggest you switch to a distro that uses packages until you are more familiar with Linux.

Reasons for your score: If you still have no association with your access point all zero’s it’s time to take a look at the logs. Also be aware that if the name contains spaces, you’ll need to enclose it with quotes like this: If you’ve already compiled some other kernel module, or an older version of the acx source code before on your current Linux installation, then your windoows environment is most likely fine, and outside of verifying the presence of the wireless windowss, this step is not necessary, so you can skip ahead if you like.

I can’t help you if I don’t know what you’re using and where in the process you ran into errors.

While not necessary for compiling, you will absolutely need them to configure and test your device.
