Rosewill RNX-G300LX how to install??
  • ubuntuubuntu December 2009
    I have a Rosewill RNX-G300LX wireless card, I tried to install the windows driver and the linux driver through the wireless manager to no avail. Can someone point me in the right direction.

    Bump....Anyone? I was going to try to reinstall SliTaz and see if I have an easier time installing it. The strange thing is the driver disk comes with the linux driver. I really enjoy SliTaz, but I need to get this card working, I have 2 more PIII 500 Mhz boxes with 384 MB of RAM I want to install SliTaz on and they will all use this card.

    Open Xterm terminal, type lspci then enter.
    From the long list of hardware the computer generates look for any lines containing the word wireless and post the ENTIRE line.

    Copy the following 3 bin files which are in the Module subfolder to /lib/firmware
