Users who are still using 2. You may not have all of them in your Windows’ driver, just copy the ones that you do have. If you’re having trouble unpacking the acx source code tarball, then you’re probably getting an error message returned from the tar command. If not, look for packages related to “development”, verify which contains the compiler, and install. Anyway, back to the task at hand, if you’re not using a USB device and don’t see one of those combinations listed above anywhere in the lspci listing, then sadly, I can’t say with any certainty that the acx open-source driver or this guide will be of any assistance to you, in fact, it will definitely not since you don’t have a supported device. These are separate small files found on the Windows’ driver CD or in a downloaded Windows’ driver archive.

You may now be tempted to bring up whatever GUI tool for configuring network cards came with your distribution, understand that I can’t help you if you use one of these tools to configure this device.

Texas Instruments ACX100/TNETW1100, ACX111/TNETW1130, ACX100USB, TNETW1450 devices

Save the file to some media that will be accessible to you after you boot into Linux. That’s about the end of my bag-o-tricks for troubleshooting these devices. I’m still working on a new page that will apply to this new driver. You may be wondering what’s going to happen should you decide to shut down the computer or reboot it.

To do that, you’ll want to change to the lniux source directory with: Successful output looks similar to this:. If tar is really not installed then there are most likely a lot of other things wrong with your install and I suggest you re-install and decline to use any “expert modes” this time.


Once you have prepared the kernel source, return to the acx top-level source directory, type: If that ends without error, then type: Out of those 9 lines listed, we’re only interested in that last one:. Be sure to substitute your “normal” username and the correct filename rc. The information listed above is usually enough to troubleshoot simple issues, and if not I’ll ask you for any additional info.

So, on that system, the IP address returned for wlan0 was The tool may work, or, it may not, and if it fails, it will most certainly do a number of things that will have to be undone, and, not having every version of every Linux distro installed linuxx my machines, I won’t be able to tell you what needs to be “undone”.

First, let’s see if a driver is already installed, so type: You may now be wondering why this older version of the driver hasn’t rendered your card functional.

At this point your driver has been completely compiled and installed. In the meantime, you can still use these devices and get the most recent possible revisions of the driver by going to: If the scan completed successfully and you see your access point listed, then try to associate again, first, type: Linux kernels require that loadable modules drivers be compiled against the same kernel version that is running, also using the same gcc version that was used to compile the kernel itself.

Then you’ll need to use the actual IP address of wlan0 instead of it’s interface name in the above ping command. To help you, I need to see what happened. At this point there should be a file named acx Also note that removing the usb cable from your machine without first running: Without the wire plugged in, the device can be brought “up”, but obviously, no communication will take place.


If you still do not get a scan, skip down a couple of paragraphs to the discussion about examining the log.

Understand though, that if any ethernet interface in your machine is using DHCP, that the contents of that file will re-written when that interface obtains it’s DHCP ‘lease’.

RPM resource ACX

Of course, you’ll be looking at the sequence of events for where in the process it breaks down and hopefully an explanation of what the problem is. I’m not going to repeat here all of the fine documentation zcx100 been included in your distribution to help you learn to mount and umount various media in Linux.

If you’re using a CardBus card, then it’s also possible that the card is not enabled or powered on. There is an outside chance that your chosen distro doesn’t use packages at all and therefore there is no package manager Linux From Scratch LFS comes to mindif that’s the case, and you’re new to Linux, then I respectfully suggest you switch to a distro that uses packages until you are more familiar with Linux.

You will also need the firmware, so download it here: A very simplified description of the sequence listed above would be:.

You can verify that the old driver was moved by typing: Now return to the compiling section and continue on. This linkx you have another network connection in the same machine that is up and running and also using the default gateway you’ve assigned to your wireless card.
