My first step on the web

A set of useful(less) guides, that I decided to write in order to remember how I solved some problems. I hope they can be helpful for you.

Acx100/111 driver in Linux


This guide shows how to install manually the driver for wireless cards with Acx chipset. You need to use a kernel version >= 2.6.10.
wget http://www.cmartin.tk/acx/acx-20070101.tar.bz2
tar -xjf acx-20070101.tar.bz2
cd acx-20070101
If your kernel version is >=2.6.21:
wget http://leonardoprosperi.com/files/acx100_new_kernels.patch 
patch -Np1 -i acx100_new_kernels.patch
If you need to send raw packets:
wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/acx-20070101.patch
patch -Np1 -i acx-20070101.patch
Compile and install:
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/ M=`pwd` modules
make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/ M=`pwd` modules_install
Download the right firmware from: http://195.66.192.167/linux/acx_patches/fw/
Acx100 is for 11/22Mbs devices and Acx111 is for 54Mbs devices.
Place the firmware in /lib/firmware
Test it with:
modprobe acx
