Driver for Linksys WRT54G wireless router

Postby dscapuano on Thu Feb 05, 2009 11:44 am

Can someone tell me where to get this? I saw the error come up when I installed from the CD, but did not catch the website stated in the error message. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

What does your wireless router need drivers for?
You surely don't have Mint running on your router. And to your wireless clients the wrt54g should act as a simple wireless access point.
For configuration you'll only need the webinterface.
So you won't need any drivers at all.

Ok, you know more about this than I do. However, when I install Mint it complains about a driver not being present and wants me to download firmware from a website - linux.org I believe.
:?

You're talking about the firmware for your wireless network card?
If it's not possible to install the driver via the restricted drivers tool you need to download the firmware for the chipset used on your network card.
Have a look at the wiki page for friendly wireless cards and compare with your wireless cards name. (Most likely something like linksys W**54G)
