    I have a problem getting my wirless access going using Wyse S-50 units.
    I am using the recomended D-Link DWL-G132 USB Wireless NIC.

    I have downloaded the WIRELESS-3.17.pak and added it. It simply adds the WPA options.
    The problem is that it seems that the Linux OS does not load the device drivers. It does not even have the lights come on.
    I have tried the device in a windows machine and it work fine!
    I have also setup my wlx.ini file to setup the wireless network!
    Any help would be great!

    Regards Glen

    Hi Glen,

    That card should work without an problems. What firmware are you on? The USB wirless support is on in the newer 6.3.1 code,

    Cheers,

    It is the newest firmware. (wy_sc_6.3.1-21.64m)
    I cannot even get a light to show on the NIC at any point.
    It is like the drivers just dont load at boot!
    I was hoping that someone else had this problem.

    The plot now thickens “read below” an updated Firmware version causes the problem.
    But I have the exact same problem with another recomended card the Netgear WG111T 802.11b/g USB 2.0!
    So what excuse will Wyse come out with for this one also listed on their site as compatable.

    We have now identified the issue with the cards! D-link have updated the firmware on the cards and the Linux driver supplied to Wyse no longer works, here are the details of the cards:

    D-Link Model No. : DWL-G132 H/W Ver. : A2 F/W Ver. : 1.02 – ( Working )

    D-Link Model No. : DWL-G132 H/W Ver. : A2 F/W Ver. : 1.20 – ( Not Working )
    We are awaiting a new driver from D-link to but into our builds and when this happens your card will be good to go. I will let you know when I have an update, I am not sure if the card you have is marked with the firmware however if your could have a look and let me know that would be great,
