Here, I will tell you how to configure D-Link DWA-120 wireless USB adapter to work under Linux. I did this in Ubuntu 9.10. As I've seen this should work for D-Link DWA-110 adapter as well.
- Plug the device
- Enter following commands in the terminal.
sudo su-Perform following in root.
apt-get update-In it you can find ndiswrapper-common, ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 packages. Install them by,
apt-cache search ndiswrapper
apt-get install ndiswrapper-common-Change the folder to where the windows XP drivers for your network device is.
apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
ndiswrapper -i filename.inf-Give the name of .inf file for the driver. For DWA-120 it is netA5AGU.inf
ndiswrapper -mAdd the line "ndiswrapper" (without quotes) at the end of the file /etc/modules using command "sudo gedit /etc/modules" to load the driver every time the system loads. If you do not want to load the driver automatically, do not edit this file. Instead, enter following command at terminal to turn on the adapter.
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper3. reboot the machine
All done. You can check whether your device working by typing "iwconfig".
This is how I enabled my wi-fi adapter to connect to wi-fi network. Does this helped you to as well? Any particular issues you encountered? Let us know in the comments.
