Linksys wusb11v4 driver (wireless adapter)

Postby brian_va » Thu Jul 30, 2009 9:54 am

Ok, first post here by another Linux noob. Gotta say, I like Mint a lot!

My 1st problem is no Linux driver for a Linksys wusb11v4 wireless adapter. No doubt Linksys has been anything but good to me. And they offer no support on this anyway. Is there a lnx driver available you know of, or should I just go get new compatible adapter?

I would first of all go Menu, Administration, Windows Wireless Drivers, Install New Driver, insert the Linksys CD, find the linksys.inf file (or whatever .inf file you find in the drivers directory. Then go to Menu, Preferences, Network Connections, Wireless and set up the wireless there.

If that does not work you might have to do this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiD ... diswrapper)

Yep, got it. Thanks. However it works about as good as it did with windows. I'm gonna buy a new one.
