Wireless N USB Adapter

Postby nptolman on Tue Jan 12, 2010 5:44 pm

I really need to get this wireless adapter to work. Or find an inexpensive one that will work in its place.
I have 2 other computers (running windows XP) with this adapter and they are working fine.
I want to load Linux on a computer form my kids but it will need a wireless connection.
I have tried ndiswrapper and also wine. neither work.
Even installing it in windows is tricky. The only .INF file on the CD is 'autorun.inf' and the download you get from the web page is just an .exe. I tried installing it in wine and it appears to install just fine but when you try to run it nothing happens. Ndiswrapper says autorun.inf is invalid. After much searching the only linux related item is for the "AWLL6077" and not for "AWLL6077v2"
What is my next step here? I am lost. Any advice would be greatly appriciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Do you have the driver cd for this? Make sure to look for "XP" drivers when using ndiswrapper.

Try this: http://www.airlink101.com/support/index ... les&id=149

Download it, extract it or open it, look for the RTL8192U folder and open it, then find the xp folder and open it. I think those are the two files you'll need but read the instructions from the previous link I gave you. :wink:

No go.
I tried all the stuff and it is not going to work. I understand the concepts now, so I did learn stuff. Thank you for that.
What is a good (in-expensive) Wireless USB network adaptor (G or N) that works well in linux?
(Geeks.com has a few inexpensive ones but I do not know if they will work.)
Thank you all for your help.
