I'm trying to install the EW-7128g from Edimax in Ubuntu 8.04
The procedure of driver installation on the disk doesn't same to be correct.
So I downloaded the driver from http//web.ralinktech.com/ralink/Home/S ... Linux.html
(also tried http//www.edimax.com/en/support_detail ... D1&pd_id=1)

During the 'make all' I get error


henkoegema@ubuntu-desktop~/RT61_Linux_STA_Drv1.1.0.0/Module$ make all
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/henkoegema/RT61_Linux_STA_Drv1.1.0.0/Module modules

That doesn't sound like a driver downloaded from _this_ website.
We only provide support for drivers downloaded from this site, if you want to use the drivers from the Ralink website, then ask support there or your hardware manufacturer.

If the Ubuntu driver installation instructions are not correct, then raise that support question there so the Ubuntu people can fix it.

Thanks for answering.

Please ignore my previous mail.

To my big surprise, I opened System -> Network -> Network Setting -> Wireless Connection.
Then I filled in the network SSID and.......voila. [btjjzmxro]THAT WAS ALL[/btjjzmxro]. o

(b.t.w. I'm using Xubuntu 8.04) on an old Compaq 450 MZ)
