after 5 hours I give up.

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Dave - Dave.net.nz, Oct 25, 2004.

  1. Anyone want to come to my house and help me get a dlink 520+ running
    with Mandrake 10.

    It detects it, but Im fucked if I can figure this shit out.
    The readme is good, but seems to be far too general, and doesnt cover if
    anything doesnt go right, which it seems to.

    What chipset is it? If it's ralink, abandon all hope. I have a really
    nasty ralink+linux story.

    wow, thanks, got any money I can borrow to buy one?

    you remind me of the story about Dell support charging a guy for making
    a suggestion that fixed his problem, he was out side of his warranty so
    had to pay for support...

    what was the suggestion?
    use another computer.

    google will probably find references to it.

    yep... they used to provide their own drivers and linux support, but
    have moved to pointing people to that url.

    I've followed the help there, and even a how-to for a default install of
    Mandrake 10, although in the how-to they say that they have done some
    kernel updates and blah blah blah, so it 's not for a default install at
    all, and as far as I can tell, doesn't work the same.

    I cant even remember the errors it kicked up, but I have all the right
    things as far as I can tell, but it aint working.

    Im hoping for some community spirited linux geek will offer his help,
    for beer or pizza in return to come and fix my plight.

    Jesus! Microsoft just can't get anything right...
    LOL

    What the hell... blame them anyway like a few others do.
    Sounds like you need a few drinks instead of a dlink, Dave, after going
    through that much frustration.

    But I've never had any problems with external modems of any variety.
    They are worth the extra moolah for that alone.

    after biting my mums head off for interupting me, I went for a drive...
    I feel better now.

    still annoyed I can't get it right, more annoyed at myself than the
    machine as I think Im just simply missing something simple, but no idea
    what it is.

    ironically Im sure that if I had net access on that machine, I could
    have fixed it by now.

    well **** me, about 10 pages of stuff, and no easy way to get it online
    and viewable.

    I saved it to a fat32 partition, but I cant see it from windows, not
    sure what I've done wrong there. any pointers?

    I'll shut down and check I did that right.

    I have an acx100 card working under slackware 10 here (it is a dlink card
    and I think quite possibly the same one that you have although I cannot
    quite recall the exact model). Previously it was working under RedHat 9.0.
    How far through the installation have you managed to get? Whereabouts does
    it stop working? Are you running the start_net program? Also, make sure you
    have the latest drivers - there are some nasty bugs in some of the earlier
    versions. I currently have acx100-0.2.0pre8_plus_fixes_34 installed and this
    has been quite stable to date.

    As a test, after you have run start_net (make sure you edit the start_net
    program to have appropriate settings first) you should be able to do
    something like

    iwconfig wlan0

    as root and get a response. With my card I had to set the mode to "Managed"
    in order to get anything to work at all properly - the default mode of
    "Auto" sort of worked, but the signal strengths were orders of magnitude
    lower than they were when the card was forced into managed mode.

    Also while you are trying to get it working I highly recommend disabling all
    security measures including MAC address restrictions. You can always turn
    them on again once it is going.

    Finally, last time I tried it the dhcp mode would not work with this card -
    I recommend setting the IP address manually - again, you can always try to
    get the dhcp working later on :).

    heh, I dont know... I really have no idea.
    Im like a windows n00b and it just wont work.
    I tried so many things to fix it, but none have... my friendly office
    Linux geek is giving it a go this afternoon, so thats all good.
    All I needed to do was shout lunch and a dozen of his favourite brew. :)

    I havent got to the point about start_net... although I did see that
    somewhere in the readme.

    Havent even got to here, I think Im missing something to do with
    iwconfig as I dont seem to have it installed ("command not found").

    signal strength should't be an issue... the AP is pumping out 250mW with
    a ~1M parabolic 24dB antenna about 50M away from me. :)

    it is an open network anyway... well, mostly.

    I have a real world static.

    Basically to get the acx100 driver working you download the appropriate
    version of the windows 2k firmware and put it in the firmware directory.
    This should consist of RADIO0d.BIN, RADIO11.BIN and WLANGEN.BIN. Then you
    edit scripts/start_net to insert an appropriate IP address, etc and I
    recommend setting the mode to "managed". Then it is just a matter of running
    start_net and everything works. With an earlier version of the driver I had
    to set up the route manually but this seems to be fixed now.

    Ok I am fairly certain that you need the wireless tools for the acx100
    driver to work. I do not have Mandrake 10 installed here, but my guess would
    be that the wireless-tools package will be on the installation DVD. You
    could try running

    locate iwconfig

    or

    whereis iwconfig

    as root first since it may be installed but not in your path.

    Heh. I think it was more of a bug with the software since the auto mode
    worked fine when I tried it in windows. In any case I recommend starting in
    managed mode just in case :p. I had problems with an AP sitting literally
    right next to the card when it was in auto mode. In managed mode it works
    from anywhere within theoretical range of the access point :).
