Hi kuknoppix,

The following guide should help you with your Linksys card:
http://www.linuxvoodoo.com/resources/howtos/linksysv4/

... and this guide for your DLink card:

Hope that helps!

Hi kuknoppix,

Try restarting your pcmcia services by issuing service pcmcia restart.

NOTE: I deleted your duplicate thread.

Thansk again

I actually tried several different things and I got really desperate so I did a reinstall of Fedora and now it is working..

I am wondering that the How To Link that you mentioned for Linksys WPC11 v4, is that going to conflict , since it uses the same drivers.

And before I start following those steps, Do I plug the card in, then start doing those things in the link...

Help me again please..

Thanks

Hi kuknoppix,

The Linksys card and DLink cards do not use the same drivers nor have the same chipset, not sure what you meant above. By the way, he's a shorter explanation of what to do for your Linksys card:

http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2003-November/msg03337.html

If you need hand-holding, I guess I can make up a guide... up to driver initialization then I'll stop, as I don't have card in front of me.

It woul dbe great if you could make up a guide.

Because I tried the instructions for the Linksys Card and when I did the make file, it gave me a whole host of errors and still did not work.

I am a newb, I hope you undertsand, that would be great if I could get a guide...

Guess hand holding is the right way to describe it..

Thanks again

Hi kuknoppix,

While I do this, can you paste the output of "uname -r" and "uname -a" please. Thanks.

[root@dhcp1710715176 /]# uname -r
2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
[root@dhcp1710715176 /]# uname -a
Linux dhcp1710715176.corp.apple.com 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl #1 Wed Oct 29 15:42:51 ES T 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


Also, could you tell me if I need to recompile the Kernel.

I guess you will mention that in the guide.

Thanks a lot again.

Install Realtek 8180 chipset driver for PCMCIA cards (eg. Linksys WPC11 v4)
Quick and dirty guide, Rev. 4 - Rafael Rivera Jr.

- Login as user. Change directory to /tmp
- Issue wget http://s89455473.onlinehome.us/rtl8180_24x_SuSE.zip
- Make directory /tmp/rtltemp
- After completion, issue unzip rtl8180*.zip -d rtltemp/
- Change directory to /tmp/rtltemp
- Issue gcc -v. Make sure gcc version is in the 3.3.x range.
- Issue cd /tmp/rtltemp
- Issue make clean
- Issue uname -r and ensure a directory with this name exists in /usr/src (hint: ls /usr/src so you don't have to leave your current directory)
- Edit Makefile...

Replace...
[code:1]KERNELRELEASE=$(VERSION).$(PATCHLEVEL).$(SUBLEVEL) $(EXTRAVERSION)
[/code:1]
... with ...
[code:1]KERNELRELEASE=2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
[/code:1]

Also change...
[code:1]INCLUDEPATH=-I /usr/src/linux/include/
[/code:1]
... to read ...
[code:1]INCLUDEPATH=-I /usr/src/linux-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/include
[/code:1]

- Edit r8180_type.h (line 128)

Change...
[code:1]//typedef struct timer_list timer_t;
[/code:1]
... to read ...
[code:1]typedef struct timer_list timer_t;
[/code:1]

- Issue make
- Issue su - and enter root password (don't forget the hypen!)
- Issue make install
- Issue insmod -f rtl8180_24x or if that doesn't work issue insmod -f rtl8180

NOTE: Does not compile correctly with 2.6.x source (hint hint).

Revision History
Revision 4
- Removed RH driver link and replaced with working SuSE link (damn RH drivers are broken)
- Added SuSE source mod. instructions.

Revision 3
- Added note about not forgetting the hyphen when using su (forces reinit of profile/paths)

Revision 2
- Mirrored driver to ensure link stays valid for a while
- Bumped up 'su -' routine to fix make install errors (perm. denied).

Revision 1
- Initial post

Don't I have to put the Kernel version in the MakeFile...

I put that in my post...

[root@dhcp1710715176 /]# uname -r
2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
[root@dhcp1710715176 /]# uname -a
Linux dhcp1710715176.corp.apple.com 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl #1 Wed Oct 29 15:42:51 ES T 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Here it is again....

Where exactly do I put that?

Hi kuknoppix,

I was merely checking to see if you were using a custom made kernel. As you are not, you can safely ignore that. The latest Realtek drivers from the URL in the guide includes $(uname -r) which executes then returns/stores the results (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl in your case) into the KERNELRELEASE variable, saving you the extra step of editing the Makefile. Had you been running a custom made kernel, **** would've hit the fan (although it would be a simple fix as well).
