Craig’s ACX/ Guide for Linux

To see whether your device has achieved association with your access point you’ll need to type: To discover what IP address is assigned to the interface wlan0, type: Be sure to substitute your “normal” username in the appropriate place in that command. All the other steps appear to be unnecessary, and they are acx1111 difficult to achieve with a fresh install of dapper, since Internet access is likely not available due to this very problem, and a lot of stuff needs to be downloaded, and packages fetched.

I found that it works somewhat better with firmware 1. Once done, linix need to rename the firmware to a name which can be recognized by the driver, so go into the directory containing the file and enter the command: At this point there should be a file named acx I don’t want to statically set up the card because I like to travel and I hate to try and remember what I’ve done and how to fix it!

The time now is It can be either the kernel version your kernel-source version does not match your running kernel’s versionor the target CPU i, PII, PIII, P4, Athlon, i, etcor the version of gcc that was used to compile the acx module does not match the version that was used to compile the running kernel. You’ll need to first create the directory where they need to be installed, type: So, I’d substitute Anyway, back to the task at hand, if you’re not using a USB device and don’t see one of those combinations listed above anywhere in the lspci listing, then sadly, I can’t say with any certainty that the acx open-source driver or this guide will be of any assistance to you, in fact, it will definitely not since you don’t have a supported device.


Now return to the compiling section and continue on. If, instead you see ” I’ll just have to ask you to send libux in my emails back to you.
