1 Hi there,
2 this thing is a wireless-usb-key and it apparently comes in 3 versions; the
3 1st and the 3rd have linux drivers (3rd is RTL8187) while the 2nd requires
4 ndiswrapper.
6 Well, I have tried pretty much everything here and the best results I get are
7 with ndiswrapper (I just get a little more info). When I just do a ndiswrapper
8 -l, it gives:
9 net8187b : driver installed
11 Which is good, if I plug the device and try that again, I get:
12 net8187b : driver installed
13 device (0BDA:8189) present
15 And /var/log/messages shows only those two lines:
16 usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3
17 sb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
19 After which, in ifconfig -a, I still only have my two eth{0,1} and lo.
21 My goal is to get the interface, after that, I'll be good to go, but this here
22 is really bugging me. I'm including attachments containing my dmesg, lsusb -v,
23 and lspci -v (just in case).
25 Thanks in advance for any help!
