Reboot and check that the kernel module is loaded by running: What I will say is that virtually all distros that use packaging have provided packages for the kernel-source, development utilities and the wireless-tools pcmcia-cs also. Most of the improvements in the driver are targeted at these devices, and far more importantly, WEP for these devices is supported only in this latest version: The driver download does not contain license information. Prism3 SSF devices require non-free firmware from userspace.

With Linux Lite an Ubuntu based distribution i wasn’t able to make it work. I’ll just have to ask you to send it in my emails back to you. First, seek help on using the package manager in the documentation that dbian with your distro, or perhaps a “help” menu item or button on the package manager itself.

If you are able to search the filenames contained within the packages as opposed to the package names themselves then search on “gcc” to determine what package to install for the compiler. However, I did find a link which still works.

That’s about the end of my bag-o-tricks for troubleshooting these devices. Besides being a waste of time, that “solution” has it’s own set of pitfalls and you were really just trying to get your wireless card working, right?.


Wifi has always been a problem for free software users. Note that the below configuration methods are not compatible with the “local” method outlined above, so try only one at a time. Next, change to your home directory in your debixn non-root console by typing: Though I can’t always solve every issue, I’m willing to try.

My output looks like this:. Hi, Sorry for being so late, I wasn’t ready with a useful reply.

Next, verify the presence of the correct version of the kernel source, type: Either way, the file can be copied to any directory and unpacked there, but your home directory yours, not root’s is the best choice. So before you go running off to begin the process of compiling iwconfig or gcc from source, I suggest you take another look at the menus, any online help and perhaps some Linux forums as well.


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

This is my updated guide for new Linux users who have Texas Instruments’ acx or acx based devices and would like them to become functional. Wireless, ACX driver installation Do you actually have the firmware, which is included in linux-restricted-modules? This means 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.

I’m going to repeat that again: Toward that end, the first thing is to determine if your device can “see” any access points, so type: Prism3 SSF devices require non-free firmware from userspace. If that file also is not found, then skip to the next paragraph.


The time now is If your card was identified as a c: Mounting and un-mounting media is one of the more fundamental tasks debiaj need to become proficient in, as well as how to find help on a command, so man mount is a good place to begin.

First, change to the acx If you’ve already compiled xcx other kernel module, or an older version of the acx source code before on your current Linux installation, then your build environment is most likely fine, and outside of verifying debiian presence of the wireless tools, this step is not necessary, so you can skip ahead if you like.

Adding this in case anyone else has an old acx wifi card and is having trouble getting it to work on ubuntu. To help you, I need to see what happened. Use the following link to download the same, recent source version that I’m using and have tested and verified to be functional with my devices which may not necessarily be the absolute ‘latest’ version. I can’t help you if I don’t know what you’re using and where in the process you ran into errors.

To see whether your device has debiah association with your access point you’ll need to type: Now, build the driver, type: November 24th, 9.
