USB Adapter Help?

Postby Kdmjr94 on Fri Mar 08, 2013 7:42 pm

Hey everyone, I'm a newbie to Linux and have been looking for an answer to my question, which I've had for about 2 years, but no one can answer. :/ I am running Linux Mint 14 XFCE, and have a DYNEX Enhanced Wireless G USB Network Adapter... I am trying to get this to work with my Linux so I can connect to my in-home WiFi, but can't really figure it out. If anyone can help me, and keep it a little simple, I would much appreciate it. :)

Thank you in advance.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Looks like it uses the Broadcom chipset

Chip 1: Broadcom BCM4326U
Linux driver
none

But search forum or Ubuntu forum on installing Broadcom drivers. May or May not succeed.
Personally would research and spend $30 on a more compatible with linux one.

I was hoping to be able to get it to work with NDISwrapper, but it seems to be broken. :( Is there any way to fix NDISwrapper?

I found this that may help me:

Translated to English of course, but it wants to me download things through terminal, and I literally have no Internet when I boot into my LInux. :/ Any suggestions besides buying a new adapter?
