    Default D-Link DWL-520+ help installing driver.

    hello guys.
    this is what i did.
    i found this module in this wich is a driver for my D-Link DWL-520+.

    h t t p: / / slax.hosting4p.com/modules.php?category=drivers&id=1388&name=acx100_2 0060521

    i rename it it to .lmz file and put in the /BT3/Modules folder.

    i did that with magic iso editor and burned it to a live cd.

    when i came into backtack i started a comand window.

    i wrote the command "iwconfig"

    i saw this.
    Code:
    ah0  no wireless interface found 
    wln0 no wireless interfage found
    i just want to know what i am doing wrong what should i do to get my pci wireless card working.

    and how do i surf internett with backtrack?

    For a start you cannot just rename it, you have to convert it from a mo to a lzm file, the command you need is mo2lzm.
    Secondly it still may not work as it will be compiled for the wrong kernel.

    But try it and see.

    The acx100 driver is installed on BT3

    I think your problem may be that the required firmware is not on BT3 or is not named correctly. Check this site for your card's firmware:

    http://acx100.sourceforge.net/wiki/Firmware

    Copy tiacx100 to /lib/firmware

    You'll have to do this each time you use a live cd, unless you recreate the iso file.

    modprobe acx

    I don't have a pci card so you may have to do other steps after the modprobe
    command. Check lsmod to see if the driver loaded.

    Hey people.
    finaly i got my nic working.

    what i did is downloaded the firmware for my nic.
    i put those two files in /lib/firmware folder.

    then i executed the command
    1) "modprobe -r acx"
    2) " modprobe acx"


    this is what i did. it's working fine..
    i am happy.


    you will have to do it ervy time you boot your live cd.

    links to the fimware will be provided later when i get 15 posts..

    injection works fine as well.

    ask for more help.

    Hi,

    I have a G520+ too and I want to make it work with BT3 live CD (or live USB).

    @ruban
    The two files I have to put in /lib/firmware are RADIO0d.BIN and WLANGEN.BIN_1.9.8.b , aren't they ?

    Then I use the two commands you give them and it'll work ...

    Can you please confirm me that ?

    Thank you

    I signed up just to tell you how to do this. I'm a complete newb to Linux, so I will try to take it step by step without insulting your intelligence too much. It took me maybe 6 to 8 hours to figure this out the first time and after a few months, I tried again and it took me about an hour. Hopefully this will save everyone a bunch of time.

    First you need to go to Level's link h t t p : / / acx100.sourceforge.net/wiki/Firmware

    and go to the part where it says:

    "For ACX100 things get a little tricky. There is one master firmware image, but 2 separate radio firmware images (note: for some cards they must be omitted so the driver loads correctly). Your best bet is to go to this page(down, archived page) to find the firmware images you need.

    Update : the acx-firmware-20060207.tar.bz2 file can be downloaded here or here(down). "

    the link you need is h t t p : / / w w w . kazer.org/acx-firmware-20060207.tar.bz2

    dowload this file, extract it. you need everything from the folder:
    fw\acx100_1.9.8.b
    there are 4 files in there:
    tiacx100
    tiacx100r0D
    tiacx100r11
    tiacx100r15

    i dont know if you need them all but copy all of them anyway. you need to get these files onto your cpu. you can use backtrack3 with usb support and use a usbdrive or have it on your hard drive. get bt3 running. open up konqueror. go to storage media which would be media:/ browse to those 4 files. copy them, paste them into /lib/firmware

    open up shell, run commands
    modprobe -r acx
    modprobe acx

    then go to applications, internet, wireless assistant. if you get past an error message and see normal wireless stuff, then you're golden. if you can't get past that first error, i dunno what to tell you other than repeat the above steps. if that doesn't work you may have a dif card so you may need dif drivers.

    i know that we can avoid doing this every time by putting those 4 files into the .iso by using an .iso editor. i tried but, i dont know enough on how to do this. i opened it up and saw the BT3/base/lib.lzm but i dont know what to do with it. if anyone wants to chime in or help, that would be appreciated.
