Hi folks

I just installed Centos 5.5. I heard about the new changes in wifi support. I tried a USB wifi card from Netgear, and It works fine. It didn't en Centos 5.4, so that's great news.

The problem is I have a Linksys WUSB54GC USB wifi card and I want to make it work.

I get this messages in /var/log/messages as soon as I plug it in.

Oct 14 22:56:21 lila kernel: usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 3

Oct 14 22:56:23 lila kernel: phy1 -> rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request Firmware.

I googled it but nothing really works.

I hope some of you guys can help me out. Thanks in advance.

Try find-out SPEC file and rpm source, recompile it, this is the faster way I think, if you have big issue.  

Fedora they released 4.1, check it.

  No, I hadn't. I'm just a tad surprised - that was rated "important", and
  looked as though it would be released soon. And with 6 coming soon, I was
  thinking, though I haven't gone to look, that they'd have 3.1 or 4.x.

  Thanks, though.
