Driver .inf files

Postby brenny » Tue Jun 10, 2008 1:54 pm


I've just been analysing the 'rt2870.inf' file that comes as part of the Ralink USB Driver for OmniPeek from the drivers download page.

I thought we had a 'D-Link Xtreme N Duo USB Adapter DWA-160' in our inventory but unfortunately we haven't.

I see the 'Xtreme' is indeed supported in the '.inf' file

I've also noticed this:

Taken from rt2870.inf

D-Link_3C09.DeviceDesc = "D-Link DWA-140 RangeBooster N USB Adapter"
D-Link_3C11.DeviceDesc = "D-Link DWA-160 Xtreme N Dual Band USB Adapter"
D-Link_3C13.DeviceDesc = "D-Link DWA-130 Wireless N USB Adapter(rev.B)"

Now the 'D-Link DWA-140' can be had pretty cheaply over here and I was wondering if anybody could confirm that it will indeed work with OmniPeek.

I'm aware that it is a third party driver and is provided as a courtesy, Ralink believe it should be fine.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

We have not tested the 140 model, but if it uses the same chipset as the 160, we would expect it to work fine. Give it a try and let us know how you fare.

I'll get hold of one in the next few days and report back.

Take care
