express card and USB wireless adapters

Postby gmit » Wed Jun 04, 2008 3:15 pm

A quick look through the supported driver list didn't discover any adapters that are Express Card or USB. My new laptop has no PC Card slot.

Any suggestions for supported a/b/n chipsets available in Express Card or USB formats?

OmniPeek maintenance customers can download a Ralink driver that will work with the following USB adapters:

Linksys WUSB600N V2
D-Link Xtreme N Duo USB Adapter DWA-160

D-Link DWA

D-Link DWA643 is an expresscard that has an AR5008 in it. It's supposed to work with Wildpackets driver v6. However, I could not find the drivers yet. Drivers should be included within Omnipeek...Inf files do not mention at all AR5008. Do you know where I can find them?

I just bought a D-Link DWA-160 ver 1.1 USB 802.11 device per above.

Upon updating the driver to the Wildpackets version (with some disagreement from Vista) my Ethernet adapter on the Dell Vostro 1310 disappeared! The adapter never showed up in Omni with a Wildpackets driver. It looks like this driver is not ready for prime time; perhaps it has some conflicts with Vista.

Any ideas? I really need this setup for Omni.

Help!

Looking inside the .inf file I see that there is no support for Vista. Do you have an updated Wildpackets compatible driver that works with Vista?

We just ran a test using OmniPeek 5.1, Vista Ultimate SP1, the Linksys WUSB600N V2 using the Ralink 2870 driver and it seems to work fine on the Vista platform. We do not have the D-link adapter with which to test. Make sure in the Adapter section of the Capture Options that when you select the D-Link DWA-160 it says WildPackets API=yes. If not, then the driver has not been properly loaded. You must force a manual update and not let Windows search for the driver, which also means you must disable UAC.

Hope this helps.

I just bought one of the linksys USB adapters. It worked immediately with Vista SP0. Thanks for hilighting it..

Some suggestions:
1. Don't tell users to disable UAC, it's not necessary and is a security risk. 2. Take the D-Link adapter off the approved list. It doesn't work with the Ralink driver
3. Buy my not-compatible D-Link adapter for your testing program.

ra driver failed on installation

Postby Wbrug » Wed Jun 11, 2008 3:28 pm

I am using a WUSB600N wireless card and trying to load the driver for WP on a DELL 610 with an onboard Broadcom wireless NIC. What I am trying to do is be able to connect wirelessly with the Broadcom and capture with the USB. When I load the driver this is what I get.

"There was a problem installing this Hardware:

Linksys WUSB600N Dual-Band Wireless N USB network adapter #2

An error occurred during the installation of the device

A service installation section in thei INF is invalid"

Anyone have a solution?
