You are currently viewing LQ as a guest. I have tried to compile it against the 64bit distrib, but didn’t work either.

The information from the system is: I have installed Ubuntu I did some research on the forums and found that a D-Link DWL-G card was supported and I think the page said “works out of the box” Having purchased the card I read the install guide.

Under Windows this would bring up the “found new hardware” wizard and install the drivers automatically, what happens under Linux? I’ve installed the 32bits version and the network manager works perfectly, out of box.

I need help here. For example, this user installed some sort of realtek firmware: When I inserted the CD nothing happened other than an icon appearing on the desktop no Auto run? I just install ubuntu desktop I’m still pretty novice at compiling stuff, but I did what linud said to do in the readme.

They’ll be helpful in the future.

So, wait — This just hit me. Is this a firmware issue? So after have tried dozen of times to build the linux driver from DLink support site, I gave up and have tried with Ndiswrapper.

I suspect that no distro is really better than any other for wireless drivers. Actual data throughput will vary. I could not find a way to enable auto run in Linux.

Why doesn’t it work? Thanks again for linhx help, if there are any future problems I’ll post again. Ask Ubuntu works best with JavaScript enabled.

The drivers and hardware come out somewhat faster than the distros are updated, so it’s a matter of keeping up with what’s available after installation like with MadWifi or ndiswrapper, or from the hardware maker. If you’d like to contribute content, let us know.


It’s probably different, but you should look for the rev A mark in notes for any driver you try. But this obviously must be handled first.
