This means you have another network connection in the same machine that is up and running and also using the default gateway you’ve assigned to your wireless card. You may not have all of them in your Windows’ driver, just copy the ones that you do have. If you’re using a recent release Mandrake and SuSE users take notice! 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. Otherwise, if you’d prefer to use the firmware from your own Windows’ driver CD then this is what you need to know:

If lspci returns pinux you think is your acx device with a lot of f’s on it’s line, and you’re using a CardBus PCMCIA card, then see the troubleshooting section for this.

You may now be wondering why this older version of the driver hasn’t rendered your card functional. Finally, once you’ve installed or verified the presence of your kernel-source package, you’ll want to make sure that a file named.

Sign up using Facebook. What I will say is that virtually all distros that use packaging have provided packages for the kernel-source, development utilities and the wireless-tools pcmcia-cs also. While there may indeed be a newer version, this guide is based entirely and only on the version and link listed above, and only that version remember, this driver is still considered ‘experimental’ and incremental versions can have their problems and are intended for acx1111 purposes.


If you don’t see your distribution listed, then you can assume that I tried and was not successful using their tools. To add that line you can type: 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.

RPM resource acx111-firmware

If so, you can return acs111 the ping section and continue. It may take some time to download completely to your browser. On most distributions you can examine the log by typing: So, on that system, the IP address returned for wlan0 was One of the reasons that you don’t see a particular Linux distribution, such as SlackwareDebian, Mandrake, Redhat, Fedora, or SuSE as part of this guide’s title is that by using the console CLI or command line interface to compile, install, and test this driver, we can be nearly distribution-neutral and allow this document to apply to as many people as possible.

The PW should be of 10 or 13 characters lenght. Sign up using Email and Password.

I found that it works somewhat better with firmware 1. If that ends without error, then type: It appears that a version of the acx driver is already included with Dapper Drake, oinux it appears to be buggy. You’ll need to first create the directory where they need to be installed, type: Does the wifi work? Chad de Lange 21 1 2. If you need assistance with any of this, feel free to email me: In keeping with this warning, I do not want to hear from people trying to use earlier versions and WEP with their acx devices.


Now move the firmware into this directory, possibly overwriting the existing, buggy firmware: It can also be saved to a USB pendrive, linnux flash card in a pcmcia adapter card, memory stick, burned on a cdrom or saved on a floppy disk.

All times are GMT While there are a number of ways to accomplish this goal, I’m going to outline one that I consider to be the safest for new linux users and the simplest to implement. November 23rd, 8.

Next, you’ll need to take care of installing the firmware. As such, my instructions on how to use your distribution’s package management to install any missing ‘packages’ are intentionally quite generic. Floppy drives are typically: So before you go running off to begin the process of compiling iwconfig or gcc from source, I suggest you take another look at the menus, any online help and perhaps liux Linux liux as well. Note that I did not compile the driver myself like the guide tells you; I simply changed what firmware is loaded.
