[Mint 6.0] D-Link DWL 120+ network problem

Post by kvaju »

Hello again

I have D-Link DWL 120+. I can't set drivers to work. I've tried with ndiswrapper to install Win drivers, but it won't work.
Please help, I am a begginer, and I need a detail howto.

Hi,

Apparently it's recognized but it doesn't manage to get an IP. Try the following:

- make sure your wireless router doesn't use any encryption or any kind of security (try that first, and once that works, then you can add encryption)
- bring down eth0 (sudo ifconfig eth0 down)
- give an IP to wlan0 which is on the same network as your router (sudo ifconfig wlan0 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx up)
- try to ping your router

If the ping succeeds then there is hope. If it doesn't then we need to look for another driver or something...

Clem.
