Check what identifier, or essid, your router is broadcasting with: What we’re looking for are messages related to the activities of the driver and device in attempting to associate with your access point, here’s an excerpt from my log showing a successful association from start to finish:. Linux kernels require that loadable modules drivers be compiled against the same kernel version that is running, also using the same gcc version that was used to compile the kernel itself. There are some notable exceptions to this, but typically, even those distros that don’t modify the kernel source still provide a kernel-source package, so use your distro’s kernel-source package only. If you still can’t turn up anything that looks like a package manager, try running: At this point your driver has been completely compiled and installed. I have run into the same problem as the OP.

By now, you have your device nicely working and are enjoying some wireless freedom in Linux, congratulations. Of course, it’s entirely possible that your device windkws not contain an acx or acx chipset.

Besides being a waste of time, that “solution” has it’s own set of pitfalls and you were really just trying to get your wireless card working, right?. If the lspci -n command comes back with something like “command not found” then most likely you have not used the su – command properly to “become” the root user, you may have used only the “su” part of that command without the ” -“, which will not work the way we need it to.
If that ends without error, then type: If there is no output avx100 that command and you are simply returned to your command prompt, then no driver is already installed and you should proceed on to the next section.
Successful output looks like this:. This is my updated guide for new Linux users who have Texas Instruments’ acx or acx based devices and would like them to become functional. What windoqs looking for are messages related to the activities of the driver and device in attempting to associate with your access point, here’s an excerpt from my log showing a successful association from start to finish:.
Association between your wireless access point and your wireless card is very similar to having the wire plugged into a regular, wired ethernet card. For info, please visit http: The most common cause is incorrect or missing firmware, please revisit the section in the acx team’s readme acx It will not do any configuration for you.
There are some notable exceptions to this, but typically, even those distros acxx100 don’t modify the kernel source still provide a kernel-source package, so use your distro’s kernel-source package only. Menu items for this are typically: Make sure any commands listed in bold text below are typed in verbatim, case and punctuation are important.
Out of those 9 lines listed, we’re only interested in that last one:. I don’t have an Essid? No such file or directory chmod: Substitute your access point’s qindows name for the “name” part of that command, and be aware that it’s case-sensitiveso “Default” is not the same as “default”.

Now, see if you have achieved association by typing iwconfig again. You’ll need to do the appropriate research for your distribution in order to determine how to bring up their ‘Package Manager’.
If you’ve already compiled some other kernel module, or an older version widows the acx source code before on your current Linux installation, then adx100 build environment is most likely fine, and outside of verifying the presence of the wireless tools, this step wcx100 not necessary, so you can skip ahead if you like. At this point it’s time to go back to being the root user, so once again type: If you’re using some kind of built-in device, then verify that it’s powered-on and if necessary, that it’s “radio” is also enabled using whatever special keys you would normally use to enable the device.
Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] physical id: Be sure wineows substitute your “normal” username in the appropriate place in that command. In keeping with this warning, I do not want to hear from people trying to use earlier versions and WEP with their acx devices.

This is a single, compressed file, called a “tarball”. If all looks good you can proceed to the next section. These are separate small files found on the Windows’ driver CD or in a downloaded Windows’ driver archive.
The tool may work, or, it may not, and if it fails, it will most certainly do a number of things that will have to be undone, and, not having every version of every Linux distro installed on my machines, I won’t be able to tell you what needs to be “undone”.
No such file or directory chown: Otherwise, if you’d prefer to use the firmware from your own Windows’ driver CD then this is what you need to know: So before you go running off to begin the process of compiling iwconfig or gcc from source, I suggest you take another look at the menus, any online help and perhaps some Linux forums as well.
The lspci -n command should be considered completely authoritative since those numbers are how the driver determines whether you have a supported device.
