I just got this HWDN2 Hawking 150-n Dish USB Adapter yesterday and I have been trying to install it on Jaunty. This is my output of lsusb

The one in bold is what I am interested on.
I have tried using Ndiswrapper with the Windows XP and Windows Vista drivers included on the installation CD but they didn't work. Ndiswrapper recognizes that the device is present but it doesn't show on the network manager or in iwlist scan.
Any ideas of how to install this USB adapter?
Thank you in advance

I got mines working just fine.

I used the windows XP drivers. To acquire them, I went to the Hawking's setup CD (NOT RALINK!), right-clicked on the drivers/setup.exe and selected/set "compatibility" to run as Windows XP sp2 (from a windows 7 machine). Ran the setup and snatched the drivers on Program Files\Hawking\HWDN2 Wireless LAN Card\Driver... (uninstalled from windows) copied said drivers to a thumb drive.

I followed the instructions found here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper

Note I use "Wicd" as the wireless applet since it makes this easier. At least to set "supplicant" driver and the wireless interface. The above doc link also suggest using ndisgtk, that dint hurt either.

So follow the steps in the above doc link. By the time you get to section 3.5 (most important) the interface will come up. In my case I tailed /var/log/ messages and syslog to check it and it loaded fine. It did bring it up as "wlan1" instead of wlan0, but a quick click on Wicd Preferences will let you set change that setting. While youre in the Wicd Preferences make sure the WPA supplicant driver is set to ndiswrapper.

I will attach the drivers file to this post and send to ndiswrapper site in sourceforge.

Buena Suerte!

I had similar problem as original post. I have a HWDN2 rev E model, solved it with different driver (net8192su.inf).

I'm using ndiswrapper to install the net8192su.inf driver. It installs properly it seems.

ndiswrapper -l
net8192su : driver installed
device (0E66:0015) present (alternate driver: r8192s_usb)


but iwconfig gives me this
wlan0 802.11b/g ESSID:"p\xE9>\xA1A\xE1\xFCg>\x01~\x97\xEA\xDCk\x96\x8F8\*\xEC\xB0;\xFB2\xAF<T\xEC\x18\xDB\"
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate:0 kb/s
Retry min limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Power Management:off
Link Quality=0/100 Signal level=0 dBm Noise level=0 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0

.... and I obviously don't see any networks

and ....
sudo ifdown wlan0
ifdown: interface wlan0 not configured

sudo ifup wlan0
Ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0.


Anyone got any ideas? Please need help ... I have very little idea what to do.
I have the HWDN2 rev E

Maybe this is too late but when using the Ndiswrapper module you need to "blacklist" the alternate driver(module) "r8192s_usb."
To do this just go to the terminal and type
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

And add the following to the file :
blacklist r8192s_usb
This will disable the alternate driver and let you use the Ndiswrapper module.
Hope this helps!
