I'm trying to setup a Linksys WUSB54G and I get this error message
    from DMESG.

    usb 2-2: firmware: requesting l3886usb

    usb 2-2: (p54usb) cannot find firmware (isl3886usb)

    usb 2-2: firmware: requesting isl3890usb

    p54usb: probe of 2-2:1.0 failed with error -2
    usbcore: registered new interface driver p54usb


I 'm just shooting in the dark here, but something worth a try would
be to put both 'isl3886usb' and 'isl3890usb' in /lib/firmware. After
all in the messages it says the kernel is asking for both the
firmwares. Just a thought.

I did give both firmware names as

'isl3886usb' and 'isl3890usb' as you suggested and I'm kind of convinced that the firmware is not right for this adapter.

The firmware I downloaded was for the 2.6.29 kernel, which is what I.m using.

The output of Dmesg is attached.

Looks like that is the case. In that case you can try one of the alternate options to get the firmware. Were you able to find out which chip your adapter uses as I had suggested earlier? If you have that info, you can try looking for it in here


The other option left for you would be to extract the firmware from the windows binary that came with the product. This page from the Prism54 Project page might be of help.


good luck


Open source is the future. It sets us free.
