    Default DWA-110 Half Working

    Ive been fiddling around with my friends Dlink DWA-110 which uses the rt73 chip set to my surprise. I couldn't believe it actually showed up in BT.

    Only problem is, there is no information about this dongle.

    Tried this

    ]root@BT4PF:~# ifconfig wlan0 up
    SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
    Has anyone gotten anywere with this dongle? Or can anyone help me to get this thing working and keep it documented for future references.

    Got this so far-

    [COLOR="LightBlue"]root@BT4PF:~# iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    wmaster0 no wireless extensions.

    I know the option for cool color effects are available but pretend they are not. If you can't help yourself then at least choose colors that are easy for others to see your text, or else those said others might not even bother to make a reply. It's in your best interest.

    I was tempted to not help, because of that colouring and lack of sleep

    It's an issue with the firmware. When it says no such file or directory it means that the driver is actually looking for firmware which contains all the necessary codes to make the dongle work.

    If you checked dmesg at the time of trying to ifconfig the interface up you will see what I mean.

    Also lines of iwconfig/ifconfig to list the interface in requiring assistance isn't particularly helpful. Things like lspci (or lsusb if its usb device) and dmesg are far more precise.

    Sorry bout the colors, they looked fine on my screen and very easy to read, ill stick to default from now on.

    root@BT4PF:~# lsusb
