Is this for the Linksys WPC11 V3? I think it has Prism 2.5 chipset.
Should be atleast for the netgear ma 401, same one as I have. Dunno about others.

Is it me or WEP no longer works with this version? (installation only asks for WPA key. I tried setting it manually)

Those files look pretty old to me, so any card that's been sold the last few years should already have the latest version on them. Or not ?!?


Mine didn't.

I suspect no new Prism-II cards were manufactured after that time (2003). I haven't heard of anyone finding a Prism-II card with WPA-capable firmware already installed.

WEP should still work (but in most cases you'd be better off using the old version of the driver). Did you follow the example of setting a WEP key in the manual?

These were awesome news indeed!

I was wondering if PCI adapters like:
- 3COM --> 3CRDW696
- D-Link --> DWL-520 (Hardware revision B2 or earlier)
- Netgear --> MA301, MA311

...could be used in a Mediator/GREX system as they can on Pegasos, or there are the issues with the driver assuming that the card BIOS has been executed  (it is executed by the openfirmware x86 emulation on Pegasos and Efika). Is this the same case as the Radeon PCI driver for example on GREX?

Also, afaik there is no support for USB Prism2 adapters on Poseidon right to be able to use these on a Deneb?

How does WPA2 pan out on 68k , does it crawl ?

@mfilos

Unlike graphics cards, wireless network cards don't have a BIOS, so that isn't an issue. If the card is hardware compatible with the PCI busboard, the driver should work under OS4.

There will probably never be support for Prism-II USB adapters, but I might port my Realtek 8187B 802.11g driver from AROS to OS3.x.

Well the netgear ma401 [rev. D V2.5], which i bought in 2008, should atleast have a newer version than the one you advise:

http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-prism/firmware/1.7.4
pk010101.hex 02-Jul-2003 01:38 16K
sf010704.hex 02-Jul-2003 01:38 171K

Or am i wrong here ? Can't see which version is on the card, as i don't have a pcmcia slot in the pc.

:afro:

Ooooh... so close.  I have an 8188 (802.11n) lying around which might be quite useful on OS4.

Does the card or its packaging say that it was manufactured in 2008 too? If not, I still think it left the factory about 5 years before you bought it. :)

That was more or less the question. What was made earlier, the card or the sw package (from 2003) ?! :confused:

If you are trying this with Allied Telesyn AT-WCL452; I couldn't get Winupdate to update the firmware in my card. I was in contact with Neil about this so I think he thought I got it working (as it says it works in the Guide). I'm presuming I'm the only person trying with this card - if I got it working I would have paid for it at the time (Amiga developers need all the help they can get). Still on WEP with the old driver but it works fine that way.

How do you actually set it up for running on a WPA2 network, i've gone through the manual and can't seem to find what i need to enter in to the Wireless prefs file.

I found this topic again while searching..

I'm having problems setting the wireless card using prism2v2.

To test if the card I got from Amigakit had problems with with wpa and wpa2 (maybe old firmware), I tried wep and it's still not working.

The funny thing is that as far as I remember I once did make it work 2 years ago but it was slower than the wired card (which no longer works) using Amiga Explorer and I needed to quickly transfer many files over a long period of time and I continued using the wired card.

Now I can not set it up.

My router is a Linksys.

The options for security are WPA-Personal, WPA2-Personal, WPA2-Mixed, WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Enterprise and RADIS.

I tried WEP, WPA-Personal, WPA2-Personal and WPA2-Mixed (I think this one accepts both wpa1 and wpa2).

Used the config files suggested inside the prism2v2 manual. Tried Easynet's updated program to make it set things up. Nothing. :)

The old prism2.device works for wep.
