I am new and i hope someone can help me.
A few years ago i bought a: Sitecom WL-125 Wireless USB 2.0 adapter 100g+.
I use Linux 11.0 and a Dell Latitude D600 laptop computer.
I have installed Kwifimanager. But it detects no networks.
I have installed Kismet and Wavemon. Nothing helps. Im a doing something wrong?
The green pilot led on the adapter does not light up.
Sitecom mails it should work fine on the newest Linux. But it does not.
Can anyone help?
probably needs the firmware/driver installed. to make sure we give appropriate help,please post the output of
from a console

did you have the device plugged in when you ran the command ?
Yes, the device was plugged in.
And it was luke warm. I must receive power from my pc.
Thanks for your help.
i think your device could have the rt2xx chipset,so you probably need the driver from here Linux driver for rtl818x wlan nic
I am sorry for the delay in my reply.
You suggested to download a Linux driver (rtl818x wlan nic). I will try that. But i am not comfortable of compiling and building program files. I understand this driver is also in a very early development stage.
I will also look for a device that will work under Linux. I found a list of devices on this forum.
Thank you for your help,
if that driver fails to work, you could also try this one Ralink Technology: Linux & if that doesn’t work,there is always ndiswrapper
I would like to let you know that my problem is solved.
I followed the instructions in the thread “My wireless doesn’t work - a primer on shat I should do next”. I found out that my laptop (= second hand) has a built-in Broadcom BCM 4306 wireless radio.
After that I followed the instructions in the thread “additional wireless bits”. I excuted the command “sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm_43xx_firmware”. The software was installed. After that I rebooted my laptop and the driver was loaded and started. Then I only had to create a new connection to my access-point.
Previously I have had Linux Suse 6.0 and Suse 10.1 so I can work from the command line. That is no problem.
I could not never have done it without your help. Your help and your links to information put me in the right direction.
Thank you for your help.
Excellent, glad you got yourself sorted,now,enjoy

Are there any changes to the sticky “My wireless doesn’t work - a
> primer on what I should do next” that you would recommend?
Hi everybody , I hope I will find here a solution for my problem. I have the WL-125 usb network adapter from sitecom but I don’t know why with my computer the internet is never stable as the internet signal never last for half without disconnecting and then I have to change the usb input to catch the signal again ! although I have another computer located at the second floor and never encounter such a problem before ! any clue?
