Using Linksys Wireless USB in RH 8

Using Linksys Wireless USB in RH 8

Post by Andrew Yat » Sat, 14 Dec 2002 01:50:13

I have the Linksys Wireless USB Version 2.6, and a computer with Red
Hat 8 on it. I downloaded the drivers from I compiled them and followed
all the instructions, but when I start RH up it says something like
"usbvnetr, no such device" and then something about delaying its start
up. (The internet won't work so I can't copy it, i'm using windows
now.) In my /etc/modules.conf I have eth0 (which is my wireless usb)
pointing to usbvnetr, I also tried usbvnet, usbvnet3, usbvnet5 and
vnetusba. None of them worked.
It *seems* like the drivers are correctly installed, but something
isn't set right so that it won't recognize eth0. When I type iwconfig
eth0 <any option> it says that eth0 does not exist.
Does anyone know how to fix this?

1. Linksys Wireless-B USB Network Adapter (FCCID: Q87-WUSB11-V28)

Just picked this up at Best Buy and came home to find out that there
is no information available, on the internet or from the manufacturer,
yet. I called Linksys tech support and was told that the product isn't
officially released until next week, so they have no info on it now
(i.e. chipset, radio...). I did find an FCC listing for this model:

Trying to get it to work with K6-450(i586) running Slackware 9.1-full
install, kernel 2.4.20...
I compiled the open source Atmel drivers v2.1.1 and insmod'ed all
three available


..unplugged/replugged the usb adapter. I can see in `dmesg` that the
device has vendor id 0x1915 and product id 0x2233

bash-2.05b# dmesg
hub.c: new USB device 00:07.2-1, assigned address 5
usb.c: USB device 5 (vend/prod 0x1915/0x2233) is not claimed by any
active driver.

...but no driver is picking up the device. I have two USB ports, one
device plugged in.

bash-2.05b# cat /proc/bus/usb/devices
T:  Bus=01 Lev=00 Prnt=00 Port=00 Cnt=00 Dev#=  1 Spd=12  MxCh= 2

I:  If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 0 Cls=fe(app. ) Sub=01 Prot=00 Driver=(none)

Same vendor id, same product id, looks like some information about the
power used.

How could I get chipset/radio data about this device to know which
driver I should be using???
