I just installed ubuntu 12.04 and I have a Texas Instruments ACX 111 wifi card.

I have looked at a few topics about how to get the drivers for it, though, all the download links don't work...

Does anyone here know where I can get these drivers.

Here is a link to the one of the first topics I read

The driver's link and firmware link doesn't work.

Ubuntu tries its best to include drivers. Does the wifi work? What error messages do you get? – Flimm Dec 6 '12 at 19:43

Adding this in case anyone else has an old acx wifi card and is having trouble getting it to work on ubuntu. (14.10)

After driving myself nearly insane trying to get ndiswrapper to work the instructions here did the trick for me.

Although your answer is 100% correct, it might also become 100% useless if that link is moved, changed, merged into another one or the main site just disappears... :-( Therefore, please edit your answer, and copy the relevant steps from the link into your answer, thereby guaranteeing your answer for 100% of the lifetime of this site! ;-) You can always leave the link in at the bottom of your answer as a source for your material.. – Ravan Sep 7 at 1:38

I just had in my hands n°two D-Link AirPlusG+ (chipset ACX111) after my office changed the computers. I installed both under linux with no problems: the 1st one is working with ubuntu 12.04, the 2nd one with Puppy 5.x. In both cases the driver is the original one, from the installation CD, installed with ndiswrapper given from the ubuntu distribution (for Puppy i used Puppy's SMS) taking care to choose the XP driver (the others don't work). With Linux Lite (an Ubuntu based distribution) i wasn't able to make it work. The adapter works with lan WEP and WPA, not with wpa2. The test with WPA was done with the original AP from Dlink and an AP from Alice (Italian adsl company) the test with WPA was unsuccesfull with AP USR462. The PW should be of 10 or 13 characters lenght. Kind regards
