OK, I've modified a driver from Ralink (RT3572USB) to include the ID strings (13b1:002f) for a Linksys AE1000, and support for WPA(2).With your PC connected to your router with an ethernet cable
, run these commands in a terminal:-
To install the packages you'll need to build the driver:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
then to change directory to you Home directory:
then to download the modified driver from my dropbox:
then to unpack the driver archive:
tar -xvf 2011_0427_RT3572_Linux_STA_v184.108.40.206.AE1000.tar.gz
then to change directory to the directory you just unpacked:
then to change to a root prompt (this is IMPORTANT, using sudo alone will not build the driver correctly):
then to build the driver:
then to install the driver
then to exit the root prompt:
then to load the driver:
Now check if your wireless has sprung to life .. and that it survives a reboot.
Can someone with a Linksys AE1000 please provide feedback on whether these instructions work .. So I can modify them if/as necessary .. TIA.
