X3522 cards use the auxiliary bus driver. This is provided by some recent Linux distributions. To determine its presence, type:

# ls -d /sys/bus/auxiliary
  • If there is output listing the directory, the auxiliary bus driver is already present:
    /sys/bus/auxiliary

    You do not need to install the auxiliary bus driver. Go to Download the Network Driver DKMS Debian Package.

  • If there is an error message, the auxiliary bus driver is not present. For example:
    ls: cannot access /sys/bus/auxiliary: No such file or directory

    You must install the auxiliary bus driver yourself. Read the following sections.
