please consider this case closed. I'm waiting for the rt73 driver to become ppc compatible.

Go Enrico!!!

Hello Dave,

I did try it that way.

I am on a ppc

Which ralink driver should work for my device?
Which ralink driver works on ppc?
Is there anything else I need to change to add the device?

I'm more confused now than I was before subscribing to the list... :/


I put the questions on top as I have the impression they tend to get lost down there where i would put them


downloaded the usb-driver branch of kismac using svn

added to Sources/Driver/USBJack/USBJack.mm
{0x0b05, 0x1723},   /* ASUS WL-167G RALINK RT2500 */
#define dRalinkDeviceCount 29      // changed from 28


no dice

The little info I found on the stick did say it was an RT2500 (even the supplied drivers are RT2500). Let's give this rt73 a shot. So I changed the position on the IDs in the list (to the rt73 group) and modified

#define dRalinkDeviceCount 28   // original value
#define dRT73DeviceCount 4              // changed from 3

This is false. the ralink drivers work fine on ppc. Infact the drivers were written using a powerbook g4 =] If kismac just hangs for you then your device is either not supported or broken. It could alost be a bug with kismac. Please try using the latest ralink build (not the main trunk build)
