    The WL-117 is self installing only for windows, this wlan stick will never work in BT3, i have this one and i have a WL-172 that does work in BT3, RT73 drivers it uses.

    But I can locate the Folder where the drivers are on Windows.
    I think it is c:\programfiles\sitecomUsb...
    there are some dll. inf. ini. files.
    Can I do something with them???
    Thanks

    A quick check of google reveals:
    http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Devices/USB
    you should see your card in the list

    also have a peek at:
    http://www.wirelessdefence.org/Conte...ssCommands.htm
    between these two sites it should give you all the information needed to get your card up and running

    are you saying that the WL-117 does not work in linux??
    because if you check
    http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Devices/USB
    you will see the card in the list clicking the link in the first column labeled drivers will give you:
    http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/zd1211rw
    which says that the card uses the zd1211rw driver for *nix and that
    "zd1211rw has been included in the kernel since Linux 2.6.18."
    Now I have not tested this particular card so I am not sure but the information above seems to differ with your statement.

    I have downloaded the driver now.What should I do with it´?
    I downloaded Compat Wireless from this site too.
    When I type the command "make" I get an error message.

    uhmmm did you also do ./configure before make?
    There was everything okay?

    Have you ever compiled source code under linux?
