Revision History
Revision 2.2.42004-06-03Revised by: gea
Cleaning up this HOW-TO. I have since moved on and offer this document for adoption or at least consider it obsolete at this time. Also my (ex) girl friend never did write the documentation to how she got the card working with Suse. Sorry.
Revision 2.2.32003-07-31Revised by: gea
WPC11 CARD DRIVERS HAVE CHANGED. Thanks to Bill Atkins for providing information and solution
Revision 2.2.22003-07-05Revised by: gea
Most likely last update for this manual. The new 2.5 (to be 2.6) kernel appears to work fine with respect to wireless cards and hence you can build wireless support directly into the kernel and not have to go 'outside' it like this.
Revision 2.22003-04-07Revised by: gea
Made a few typo corrections. Publish it on Freshmeat
Revision 2.0.22003-02-24Revised by: gea
Thanks to Justin Stockton for helping me eliminate a confusing bit of reading.
Revision 2.02003-01-15Revised by: gea
I have decided to generalize this document to other distributions then just Debian. The redhat section is due to the generous contribution of Tony Perrie of Involution (.DOT.) com. I also recently got a fast connection again and was able to update kernel and patches info. I also tried out the new wlan-ng module
Revision 1.22003-01-11Revised by: gea
Made clear where to get most up-to-date documents
Revision 1.1.42002-12-22Revised by: gea
I forgot what i did here
Revision 1.1.32002-06-09Revised by: gea
Made clear what version on linux-wlan I actually used.
Revision 1.1.22002-05-26Revised by: gea
In part 2 of the HOWTO, the last item says make-kpkg --revision-custom.1.0 kernel_image when later on you used the correct one make-kpkg --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image . Where there is an equal sign before the word custom and not a dash. This has been corrected. thanks to Raj Prakash, raj@rajeshprakash.com
Revision 1.1.12002-04-27Revised by: gea
some more grammar improvements, and highlighting to make things clearer
Revision 1.12002-04-13Revised by: gea
Correct grammar, made things a little more clearer, made software requirements more explicit.
Revision 1.02002-03-24Revised by: gea
Written because I spent enough figuring this out that I wanted to store "how I did it" somewhere I wouldn't lose it and figure you all might like it too.
Revision 1.1.42002-8-10Revised by: gea
I attempted to follow my own instruction on re-installing on the same laptop and found my how-to a little lacking. Have made things a bit clearer on what I am using. Also made a table to two

This is a Cookbook on how to set up a Wireless Link-Sys WPC11 card using a Link-SYS Wireless Access Point/DSL/Switch on a Debian system. Other systems are addressed.
