problem getting Fritz WLAN USB running in Fedora 9 x86_64



Hi all,

I've been doing a lot of searching the net, including this list, for a solution to my problem:

I've got Fedora 9 x86_64 running (nicely) with all current updates up to now, but I just cannot get my Fritz WLAN USB adaptor (drivers) installed. For one thing, since compiling the source code that I got from the AVM company web site does not work, I wanted to resort to installing the ndiswrapper package, but that is not found/available (from Fedora at least).

Does anybody know what I need to either be able to successfully compile the source code under x86_64, or to get this ndiswrapper package installed? Also, if I go with the ndiswrapper solution would I need to use the XP or Vista 64-bit drivers, or the regular 32-bit?

The device monitor recognizes it when plugged in and lsusb gives this:

# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 057c:62ff AVM GmbH WLAN USB v1.1 [no firmware]
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 045e:0734 Microsoft Corp.
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

and compiling the source code gives this:
