    HOWTO: Use Linksys WUSB54Gv2 in 10.04

    I just wanted to document the process of installing/using the linksys usb wifi adapter WUSB54Gv2 here, so anyone out there with this adapter will have an easy time installing:

    1. Download this firmware file for the p54usb driver:

    2. Rename the file to:
    3. Copy the isl3887usb file to /lib/firmware

    4. Unplug/plug in the adapter and you should be able to successfully connect to the internet.

    I have only tested this with unprotected networks - YMMV with WPA and WEP.

    Thank you for the tutorial i was going crazy trying to figure out why the network adapter refused to work in 10.04 while it worked fine in 9.10.

    Install linux-firmware-nonfree and it works:

    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree

    The problem I'm having now is that the connection will disconnect frequently and then I have to reboot in order for it to work again. This is with a WPA connection.

    Thanks parm289! This worked perfectly and got me over a huge hurdle with little to no effort I'm running Bodhi Linux (which is based on 10.04 LTS) on an old Dell PC and really didn't want to buy a new USB adapter. This is connecting to a WPA2 Personal network so it works fine with protections.
