  • Chipset : Atheros 5523
  • usbid: 129b:160b 129b:160c
  • Drivers: athfmwdl + net5523 (both needed) from CD provided with device


129b:160b has been tested with ndiswrapper 1.8; WEP restricted mode 802.11g (54 MB/S) works; WPA don’t work; 108 MB/s don’t work

Also for 129b:160b, this work indicates good performance of the SIEMENS GIGASET 108 USB ADAPTER in combination with the driver which comes with the NETGEAR WG111T USB adapter. This work did not use the driver which comes with the CDROM. Good signal strength with 54 Mb/s. Present work cannot test 108 Mb/s due to net limitations.

Download this driver from ftp://ftp.netgear.de/download/WG111T/WG111T_GRV1.2.zip. This driver comes with two sets of .inf and .sys files: athfmwdl and netwg111t. Both of these must be installed with their *.inf files. After that, ndiswrapper-1.7 can be used as in the case of other drivers

Encryption: WPA-PSK (TKIP) works for this driver installation with the version wpa_supplicant-0.4.7.

129b:160c has been tested with ndiswrapper 1.10; WPA works; 108 MB/s seems to work, too.

there is also a newer driver version here: http://kbserver.netgear.com/de-support/wg111t.html ftp://ftp.netgear.de/download/files/wg111t_2_1_setup.exe

I tested WG111T_GRV1.2.zip and they don't work on Siemens 108 usb adapter under Fedora 14.

I found original Siemens drivers and they work like a charm.

Here they are located: http://gigaset.com/hq/en/product/GIGASETUSBADAPTER108.html?tab=downloads

to install Siemens driver just do this:

wget http://gigaset.com/medias/sys_master/usb_adapter_108_V2025_eng.exe
