    Bundled WiFi Module ??

    Re: Knoppix 7.0.3 CD
    Knoppix 5.1.1 CD

    Hi,

    Sourceforge appears to have a linux driver for the RTL 8185L chipset for:

    54M
    Wireless G
    PCI Adapter

    link

    Driver A:

    link2

    Driver B:

    link3

    Q1: How can one verify that an RTL 8185L driver got bundled w/referenced knoppix versions?

    Q2: Since knoppix did not detect/install a driver for the adapter, what's the correct indexing for a sourceforge install?

    Regards,
    luther

    Hi,

    I think the drivers you found are too old to work with current Linux kernels.

    The page rtl818x in the Debian wiki says the 8185L by Realtek should be supported by the kernel module rtl8180. What is the PCI id of your wireless network card?
    Code:
    lspci

    Q1: Is kernel module rtl8180 bundled w/knoppix 7.0.3.LiveCD?

    Q2: How does this package become functional, if it is?

    THX!

    Why do you look for a dead project?
    As of October 12th 2011, the service and website appears to be offline and no longer functional. No warning or feedback was given by the developer.
