Has anyone got the Linksys WUSB600N Dual-Band Wireless-N USB Network Adapter
(wireless usb stick) to work on tc? I've tried it with wicd on my dell 640 laptop just as a simple test and it's not recognized as I expected would be the case.

edit: Hmm, from http://linux-wless.passys.nl/query_part.php?brandname=Linksys
it seems yours is v2, unsupported by the kernel drivers.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Your device uses a Ralink chipset.

To determine which one Install usb-utils.tcz.

Then open a terminal and run lsusb to list the device number.

ID 1737:0071 - RT2870USB(RT2870/RT2770)
ID 1737:0079 - RT3572USB

The drivers are available at http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2

Have you compiled these for tc 2.8?

No... I don't own said device, so I have no way to test it.

In your opening post you stated it's not recognized using wicd.

What is the output of lsmod? Do you see the module for your device listed?

If so, then perhaps all you need is the firmware.

Following on this thread....
Noob alert!!

I am new to TCL and I am not a Linux expert by any manner of means as I come from a Windoze world
however....

I have a device which uses a Raltek RT2770. This is not supported by TC. So I downloaded the Linux
drivers from the Raltek site. These need to be compiled so:-
Q1 do the drivers need to be compiled on the target system i.e. the device with TCL installed or can
any Linux based system be used?

Q2 Assuming I manage to compile them and get a driver how would I then get it deployed in TCL on
the target device?

It would be much better to compile the driver on tc, then you would be sure there would be no compatibility issues.

You can make an extension out of the driver - see the extensions section of the wiki
