I have an USB Wi-Fi dongle US Robotics USR5422.

I followed the procedure described here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper

The adapter works for a few seconds, then the system completely freezes and I have to hard reset.

I tried to compile myself the ndiswrapper-1.56.tar.gz but I get the error:

Unknown field 'ioctl' specified in initializer


I tried also to install/compile ndiswrapper dpkg.

I wire-connected the laptop and updated the system.

No luck in any cases.

Note that I ran a live Puppy Linux on an USB stick and the adapter was recognised automatically out of the box.

Can you help?


I have an AMD Athlon XP m 2600 laptop, 512 Mega RAM DDR,
with Lubuntu 11

Thanks in advance
Antonio
