Zotac ZBOX-AD04-U Wireless (NB087) Install help

Postby Wall86 on Mon Feb 11, 2013 2:46 am

Howdy everyone,

Hoping someone around here might be able to help me. Trying to figure out how to install the wireless driver for my Zotac AD04-U. There are Linux drivers available (For Ubuntu, but they should work)

Hoping someone might be able to assist me with these instructions.

The included Readme has these for instructions, I get some of it, but some of it is beyond me.
Code: Select all
Build Instructions: 

1> $tar -xvzf DPB_RT2860_Linux_STA_x.x.x.x.tgz
    go to "./DPB_RT2860_Linux_STA_x.x.x.x" directory.
2> In Makefile
    set the "MODE = STA" in Makefile and chose the TARGET to Linux by set "TARGET = LINUX"
    define the linux kernel source include file path LINUX_SRC
    modify to meet your need.

3> In os/linux/config.mk
   define the GCC and LD of the target machine
   define the compiler flags CFLAGS
   modify to meet your need.
   ** Build for being controlled by NetworkManager or wpa_supplicant wext functions
      => #>cd wpa_supplicant-x.x
      => #>./wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ira0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf -d
   ** Build for being controlled by WpaSupplicant with Ralink Driver
      => #>cd wpa_supplicant-0.5.7
      => #>./wpa_supplicant -Dralink -ira0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf -d

4> $make         
   # compile driver source code
   # To fix "error: too few arguments to function ¡¥iwe_stream_add_event"
     => $patch -i os/linux/sta_ioctl.c.patch os/linux/sta_ioctl.c

5> $cp RT2860STA.dat  /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/RT2860STA.dat       
6> load driver
    #[kernel 2.4]
    #    $/sbin/insmod rt2860sta.o
    #    $/sbin/ifconfig ra0 inet YOUR_IP up
    #[kernel 2.6]
    #    $/sbin/insmod rt2860sta.ko
    #    $/sbin/ifconfig ra0 inet YOUR_IP up

7> unload driver   
    $/sbin/ifconfig ra0 down
   $/sbin/rmmod rt2860sta

Hoping someone could break it down a bit for me, still relatively new to compiling and installing drivers myself (Had a hard enough time with the non-free drivers)

Any help is appreciated!
