  4. Card: D-Link DWL-G120 REV B1
    • Chipset: Prism GT USB
    • usbid: 2001:3701
    • Driver: Driver available online . Driver version 04/2004, 1.00.15 (branded as a Conexant driver; D-Link’s drivers are older and less stable).
    • Other: Works with WEP. Linux 2.6.10 ndiswrapper-1.5 has made this card extremely stable.
    • Other: I had major stability problems with all drivers available on the US D-Link site. The drivers available there are “10/04/2003, 0.10.0.2” (labeled as v1.10) and “11/11/2003, 1.00.5.0” (labeled as v1.12). I discovered that there are several other drivers available on D-Link’s other regional sites, with conflicting version labels. I located the “04/06/2004, 1.00.15.0” driver on the Australian site labeled as v2.00. (The driver labeled v1.15 there was actually the 1.00.5.0 driver). The most recent driver that I could find was on the Taiwan site, which is “08/05/2004, 3.00.22.0” and labeled as v3.00 for rev C1 hardware. The 3.00.22.0 driver seems to be backward compatible with my rev B1 hardware and is working ok, but I have not been using it long enough yet to determine how stable it is.

(Ivo van Doorn (aka IvD) should be working on the RT2500USB which is needed. http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Developers is the place to look)
    • Driver: 03/11/2004 1.00.13.0 on the CD (also latest found on dlink’s ftp site) works with ndiswrapper-0.12. (No idea what revision the dongle is.)
    • Other: Works with WEP. Linux 2.6.7 and 2.6.9 with ndiswrapper-0.11. Woks with WPA-PSK using wpasupplicant (see the WPA Wiki).
    • Driver: 07/15/2004 1.02.00.0000 on the www.dlink.de website works with ndiswrapper-1.1. P/N EDWLG122..B1, FCC ID:KA2DWLG122B1
    • Driver: 04/01/2004 1.00.00.0000 from the CD works with ndiswrapper-1.1 The older(?) driver from binbash.de made problems after insmodding ndiswrapper in the kernel (see below). I am running Gentoo Linux with kernel 2.6.11-r6. The driver works with WPA-PKS (TKIP)
    • Other: Using kernel 2.6.10-1.770_14.rhfc3.at, can hang initial modprobe if the dongle is plugged in, unplug it to get past problem. This version of the dongle is rt2500 based and NOT prism based (USA dlink site has wrong drivers!)

    • Other: Tested with SUSE 10 and Ndiswrapper 1.5. Works perfect, remember just to install a 32 bit system. ( Attention: Installs by default from DVD a 64 bit version assuming that your PC support 64 bit). Better to install from CDs (than it asks) that’s 32 bit for sure.

    • pciid: 104c:9066
    • Other: SUSE 9.2 Ndiswrapper 0.10-3. Works fine also with 128 bit WEP. Installed Ndiswrapper that ships with SUSE 9.2. Add Dlink Driver with “ndiswrapper -i GPLUS.inf” Add “alias wlan0 ndiswrapper” to /etc/modprobe.conf.local. Load driver for the first time with “modprobe ndiswrapper.” Plug in the card. Configure it with YAST. Be sure that in YAST networkcard setup at Advanced→Hardware Details the module is set to ndiswrapper. Since SUSE 9.2 ships with native linux acx-111 driver you might get the wrong driver loaded. The linux acx-111 driver lacks support for WEP. Have to replug the card after a suspend to disk. Thanks for ndiswrapper. Other:Also works with SUSE 9.3. See the readme file /usr/share/doc/packages/ndiswrapper/README.SUSE. No more replug after suspend to disk required. Also got WPA working. Only problem was that there is a typo in the script /etc/sysconfig/network/scripts/ifup-wireless-wpa ! Correct the typo in line 188 “WPA_DRIVER=ndiswrapper” !
    • Troubleshooting: I used the new driver version 3.10 from www.dlink.de. After ‘unshield data1.cab’ and ‘ndiswrapper -i GPLUS.inf’ I had an invalid driver message on ‘ndiswrapper -l’. But then I ‘cp GPLUS.sys GPLUS_XP.sys /etc/ndiswrapper/gplus’, it works fine.

  44. Card: D-Link WUA-1340(USB)
    • Chipset: Ralink RT73 (RT2571W)
    • usbid: 07d1:3c04
    • Windows Driver: The newest driver, 3.0, for the DWL-G122 rev C1 can be used since the definition for both is in there.
    • Other: H/W Ver A1, F/W Ver 1.00 Used drivers on CD, extracted with wine by running setup.exe in driver directory. Works with ndiswrapper 1.47
  45. Card: D-Link WUA-2340(USB)
    • Chipset: Unknown (Atheros?)
    • usbid: 07d1:3a07
    • Driver: Driver available on accompanying CD and on www.dlink.com. Installed on WinXP machine to get access to drivers in windows/inf folder, and program files/D-Link folder. (I added both oem47.inf, athfmwdl.sys, ar5523.bin, and oem48.inf, a5agu.sys, ar5523.bin) EDIT: Worked only when: Used with ndiswrapper version 1.30; Used D-link driver version 101 with NetA5AGU.inf, this .inf file is the only driver file needed.
    • Other: Able to recognize hardware (ndiswrapper -l showed hardware pressent) using same procedure as for the DWL-1340, but on loading the kernal module, wlan0 appeared but was not configurable and did not respond to ifdown/ifup, so I couldn’t get this device to work with ndiswrapper. EDIT: This device was able to work with ndiswapper version 1.30 and NetA5AGU.inf from D-link website
    • Success: Though others above have had success with ndiswrapper version 1.30, I was unable to compile this old version against my kernel sources (2.6.22-suspend2-r2) due to a change in some kernel macro specs. Later versions of ndiswrapper would compile, install drivers, modprobe properly, but... nothing happened. No dmesg errors, but no dmesg output about loading drivers either, even though ndiswrapper -l showed the drivers there, and the hardware present. This has been fixed in ndiswrapper 1.49, which works perfectly with the neta5agu.inf driver (version 1.20). The wlan0 interface is initialized on my laptop, and by issuing a “ln -s /etc/init.d/net.lo /etc/init.d/net.wlan” followed by a “/etc/init.d/net.wlan start” my already-installed wpa_supplicant sprang into action and connected me to my WPA-PSK protected router. Can’t ask for more.

This driver has a bug: When many stations are available in scan, it gives wrong data which may crash kernel. Use alternate (more recent) driver: Use driver for Netgear MA111v1 from ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/ma111_CD_v2.0.zip and create alias for 2001:3700 to netma111 with ‘ndiswrapper -d 2001:3700 netma111’). netma111 doesn’t have issues with scanning.
