    Default Ubiquity SRC Driver

    Please somebody help im pulling my hair out.

    I have a Ubiquity SRC 300mw pcmcia card and im trying to install their driver for it. Ive searched everywhere for a "how to" on installing the Ubiquity Radio driver from ubnt.com/support/radiodriver.php but cant find anything on how to install it.

    I've have BT2 final installed to hdd. I've downloaded the driver from the link above and now have a folder in my root directory named ubnt-hal-0.7.379

    Do i need to run the make command first and foremost ?
    Then do i need to run make install to install the drivers ?

    BT already has drivers that support that card built-in. If you install the ubiquiti drivers, it will may overwrite the modules already included.
    To build and install the ubiquiti drivers run make in the ubnt directory, then cd into src/madwifi-dfs-* and run make install.

    I haven't tried these. The SRC isn't listed as a supported card and I haven't bought any ubiquiti mini-pci cards yet.

    Driver Compatibility: SR2, SR5, SR4, SR9, XR2, XR3, XR4, XR5, XR7, XR9
    I'd be interested in how they work for you. Injection, monitor mode, reported txpower, stuff like that if the drivers recognize your card.

    Good Luck

    Many thanks ghaze,


    as you advised, I did try this yesterday (running make from the ubnt directory) and got an error.

    Maybe it's due to the version of the madwifi drivers im running as when i did a modinfo ath_pci it showed the version of the madwifi drivers being SVN ??

    Perhaps i should upate the madwifi drivers first then try to run the make command again.

    when I run make it got so far then complained about a directory not existing. Ill give it another go and post the output shortly.

    A you can see towards the bottom of the output it states that it cannot find a member named dev.


    Any ideas ??
