Thank you for taking time to read this post from a newbie and thanks again if you have a step by step way of helping me. I've read some of the suggested readings and links but have wound up with good information but nothing that addressees what I am attempting.
I have a FILEMATE Wireless-N PCI Adapter, Model # 3FMPCIMWN-R, System requirements Win7, Vista, XP, 2K, Linux/Unix that I've inserted into a PCI slot. The disc with the instructions directs mostly to WIN.
There is some Linux files on the accompanying disc but no instructions of what to do with them.
Main Folder on disc: Linux Driver
Next Folder: Firmware
Inside this folder: RTL8190P
Inside this folder;
Nex Folder: HAL
Inside this folder: rtl8192
Inside this folder a lot of documents that say; C source code and C header
Next Folder: ieee80211
Inside this folder a lot of documents that say; C source code and C header and shell script (s)
then the following documents:
ifcfg-wlan0-----plain text document
wpa1.conf-----plain text document
wpa_supplicant-0.5.10.tar.gz----Tar archive (gzip-compressed)
Have called the company out in California, got someone on the line. They e-mailed me an .rar file but without any instructions also.
I am using this same card with its dual antenna in the WIN machine that has given a steady performance of 48Mbps from a basement location of about 250 ft. from a wireless router.
Did see a folder; RTL819xP_Driver
In this folder were folders for VistaX64, X86, Win2k,WinX64, WinXP
So like Larry the cable dude, "I'm tryin to git 'er done" Kin ya help me?
Appreciate yo help,
