Home Learn Linux Linux Answers Internet Don't know how to install Dlink DWA 125 wireless usb to my computer. I have linux ubuntu 11.04. Can someone put a step by step (easy) for me?
  • Quiet easy.
    First of all disable IPV6:
    1.) Open a terminal and type: sudo gedit /etc/sysctl.conf
    2.) Add the following line at the end: net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1
    3.) Save the file and close gedit
    Now blacklist certain drivers which are messing up.
    4.) Again in the terminal: sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    5.) Add these lines: blacklist rt2800lib
    blacklist rt2800usb
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    blacklist rt2x00usb
    6.) Save and close gedit and the terminal
    7.) Maybe reboot and it should work like a charm.

  • OK, first checked if the device was recognized. Open a terminal and type
    iwconfig and post the output here.
    This should give you a list of all network devices. If this does not work you need to install wireless-tools first. (Use the Software Center or Synaptic to do that)
