View Full Version : Dynex wireless g desktop adapter not recognized
Sep 24th 2008, 02:24 AM
So I recently purchased a dynex wireless g network adapter for my desktop, and i'm having a hell of a time getting it to even show up on my device menu, as far what i've done to try to fix it, i've downloaded the drivers and tried to open it with wine from the supplied disk, which ends up in a crash of the application the moment it trys to load, and i've checked in konsole with lspci, and have found no network devices listed besides my ethernet 10/100. Any suggestions?

$ wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode sta
wlanconfig: ioctl: No such device
and also, at the moment im using a usb device to use the internet so my wlan0 is being used, but that shouldn't effect it should it?

Just for kicks you could try the II A6, with 2.6.27 goodness, that comes with the ath9k driver... my atheros was recognized for the first time without hoops... so that way, if you think you will be installing/upgrading next month you can gauge how hard you want to try now...
