Just installed Centos 5.8 with only the Basic package selected, so no GUI. I want to use this for an Asterisk PBX server.
I would like to use a Ralink RT2870 (Linksys WUSB100) wireless USB on it.
When I do a iwconfig, it says it has no wireless, so I am assuming I would install the driver the same way as described here, but using the proper driver for RT2870: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/W ... 2d2ca61fb5
I would want to do the install ofline using a flash drive.
According to the instructions, I have to use NetoworkManager, but since I don't have a GUI installed, I am assuming I can't do that.
May questions are:
Are those the right driver and firmware (the RT2870 ones) to use?
How do I install the drivers offline (is it rpm -Uhv
Do I have to do a modprobe at one point?
How do I connect to my router once the driver is installed?
Or am I totally on the wrong path here?
As an alternative, I also have a Realtek RTL8191S and a Zydas ZD1211 wiereless USB (I only would want to use the ZD1211 as as last resort, as it tends to overheat). Would these be easier to install?
It looks like this could be the driver for the Realtek: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/dow ... Down=false
Thanks in advance for your help.
