    Linksys WUSB54GSC v2 Problem

    I've been trying to install this adapter for the past few days, but had no luck. I have the Original CD that came with it but dunno how to install it on Ubuntu. I tried to go here but I don't understand how to do those methods. Can someone walk me through them so I can possibly get the adapter to work?

    Thank You.

    Depending on what Ubuntu version you've installed, the driver may be already installed. Please insert the device, open a terminal and run:
    Code:
    lsusb
    Is the device ID 13b1:0014? If so, the driver rndis_wlan is already in Ubuntu 12.04. What version do you have?
    Code:
    lsb_release -d
    For reference:
    chili@LAPTOP60:~$ modinfo rndis_wlan

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    When I ran the first command this came up:

    Bus 001 Device 016: ID 1737:0075 Linksys WUSB54GSC V2 802.11g Adapter

    We are going to have to use ndiswrapper as suggested in the link you gave. Do you have an internet connection on the computer now? Can you install niswrapper?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndisgtk
    We will also need to see what you have on the install CD. What are the files? Specifically, we are looking for the Windows XP .inf and .sys files appropriate to your architecture, either 32- or 64-bit. Find out with:
    Code:
    arch
    i686 is 32-bit and x86_64 is 64-bit.

    EDIT: I have them. Please download the attached to your desktop. Right-click and select Extract Here. Then, in a terminal, do:
    Code:
    sudo ndisgtk
    When the box opens, point to Desktop > XP_2K > ndiswdm.inf. The system should install the driver automatically.

    No I don't internet connection on the computer. I have the ndiswrapper file on my computer called ndiswrapper-1.58rc1.tar.gz . I put it there with my USB Stick.

    I have 32-bit.

    In the CD:

    In the Driver File, there were two other files named, Xp_2k and Vista

    Under XP_2k
    -bcm43xx.cat
    -bcm43xx64.cat
    -ndiswdm.inf
    -ndiswdm.sys


    and there was a AUTORUN.INF file

    Re: Linksys WUSB54GSC v2 Problem

    Do you still have the Ubuntu install CD? The ndiswrapper .deb files are on it in /pool/main/n/ndiswrapper/. Drag and drop both to your desktop. Right-click them and select Install with Package Manager, or similar.

    The problem with extracting and installing the tar.gz you have is that many complex prerequisites are needed.

    If you drag and drop the XP_2K folder from the Linksys CD, you can follow much the same process. ndisgtk is not on the Ubuntu CD, so do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    ndiswrapper -i Desktop/XP_2K/ndiswdm.inf
    ndiswrapper -m
    Check to see if the install went well:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    That's a lower-case L for 'list.' If everything is well, it ought to report the file is installed and the device is present. See if a wireless interface, ideally wlan0, is created:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    exit
    Click the Network Manager icon and connect!

    The device is present and driver is installed.

    But the last code wlan0 was not present.

    Only

    lo

    etho

    and both of them say no wireless extensions.

    Let's see what the logs say is going on behind the scenes:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep ndis
    You can copy and paste the result from the terminal to a text document and transfer it on a USB key to post it here.

    The terminal doesn't do anything when I type that in.

    Re: Linksys WUSB54GSC v2 Problem

    Please try a slight variation:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    dmesg | grep ndis
    Any errors or warnings are helpful, please post them if any.
