driverswireless

Does anyone know how exactly to get the driver installed for this and give a step by step guide? Everything I've tried so far goes to a dead end.

• The device only works with ndiswrapper. With a temporary working interet connection by ethernet or any other means, open a terminal and do:

sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9


Find out if you need the 32- or 64-bit files:

arch


64-bit returns x86_64. If yours is a 64-bit system, you will need to make an edit to the driver file. Open "bcmwlhigh5.inf" in gedit or any text editor and add this line, around line 170:

[Linksys_AE2500.files.NTamd64]
AE2500xp64.sys,,,6


Proofread carefully, save and close the text editor. Now do:

cd ~/Desktop/xp
sudo ndiswrapper -i bcmwlhigh5.inf
sudo ndiswrapper -ma
sudo depmod -a


Reboot. If the wireless is not working, see if you can see any problems:

ndiswrapper -l


That's a lower-case L for 'list,' not the number 1. Also:

dmesg | grep ndis
