FC3 and Linksys wireless WUSB11 ver 2.6

Hello all,

Has anyone been successful in getting Linksys wireless adapter WUSB11 ver 2.6 working on fedora core 3? I have been trying for days but with no luck. FC3 rocks... But without Internet, I am not able to have fair amount of control.

I have tried using the drivers at:

but got like 10000 errors upon compiling.

What more?? commands like 'lsmod', 'iwconfig', 'depmod' doesnt work. I get a "command not found" message at the prompt.

Any ideas/directions would make my life lot easier.

Fedora Core 3 + Win XP Pro dualboot
Intel Pentium 4, 1.6 GHz, 512MB RAM
200 (160 + 40)GB Hard drive

Just got linksys wubs11 v2.8 wireless usb adapter to work with a linux 2.6 kernel.

Here's how I did it.

Downloaded the CVS tarball from http://at76c503a.berlios.de/support.html,
followed the instructions here: http://at76c503a.berlios.de/cvs.html

You should now have a source tree, cd into it, do a ./Configure, then a "make ; make install".

I added a line "alias wlan0 at76c503-rfmd" to both /etc/modules.conf and /etc/modprobe.conf.

cd into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts.
copy ifcfg-eth0 to ifcfg-wlan0

edit the ifcfg-wlan0 file and comment out the hardware MAC address line.

run the command: iwconfig wlan0 essid "WLAN"
(looks like a good candidate to put into the /etc/rc.d/init.d/network script

do a /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart. i

and voila!

you should be up and running.
Only dead fish go with the flow....

Hmmm, what did I miss?
