    Unhappy Ubuntu 10.10, WLAN, Ndiswrapper

    Hey,

    I've been using Ubuntu 10.10 32bit for about a week now. I'm running it on a Sony Vaio CW (VPCCW290x). I've been working out the kinks and this is the last major hardware problem.

    Sony Support Driver Download Page
    As the title says, I'm having problems with my WLAN connections. Speeds are limited dramatically. I'm getting download speeds of about 700-800b/s. Through Google and the forums, I learned about ndiswrapper which requires Windows XP WLAN drivers. I went to Sony's support website and located the driver. As expected, the driver is an .exe install, NOT the convenient .inf file.

    After more research, I've learned to use cabextract and 7zip to extract the .inf file. Cabextract gives me an error, while 7zip on WINE gives me a few files: .rsrc_1, CERTIFICATE, .data, .rdata, .text, and a .rsrc folder. The .inf wasn't in that folder either. I installed the driver through WINE to find the extract .inf file in the Windows C:/ drive but had no success.

    Finally, I found a website called Atheros.cz which had the .inf available for download. I downloaded the file and pointed ndiswrapper to it. Ndiswrapper seems to install it alright. I opened ndiswrapper again and received a pop-up telling me that ndiswrapper was "unable to see if hardware is present." Once I click Ok, it has my driver under the currently installed list with the message "Hardware Present: Yes" After all of this, my internet speeds are still atrocious on wireless internet. I'm beginning to give up on this project.. I'm assuming I have the right driver but I'm just missing something. I haven't blacklisted Ubuntu's driver or anything else so maybe that would be where the problem lies. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to do that. Please let me know if there is anything more I can do...

    Thanks!

    Re: Ubuntu 10.10, WLAN, Ndiswrapper

    Hi,

    You are certain that is an Atheros AR928x wireless interface? Can you post the results of these terminal commands (Applications > Accessories > Terminal):

    Code:
    lspci
    sudo lshw -C network
    lsmod
    lsbusb
    ifconfig
    iwconfig
    ndiswrapper -l
    The reason I ask is that this thread claims that Ubuntu 10.10 Meerkat works "out of the box" for that Atheros interface:

    According to post #127 on another thread, your Atheros AR9285 wireless is just supposed to work "out of the box" with ubuntu 10.04 Beta (and I would expect the newer ver. 10.10 as well).
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9146138&postcount=127

    Let's try getting rid of that ndiswrapper module and trying the Linux "native" Atheros wireless module instead:

    Code:
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo modprobe ath9k
    ifconfig
    iwconfig
    If you get any error messages, could you post those here also?

    Re: Ubuntu 10.10, WLAN, Ndiswrapper

    Update: I edited my /etc/modprobe.d/bad_list and deleted the line that contained my driver. Now, when I open ndiswrapper, I don't receive the pop up that tells me my hardware is not detected. It also says hardware is detected under my driver. Unfortunately, my speeds are still really, really low.

    What does lsmod tell you now, after modifying the /etc/modprobe.d file?

    My internet speeds seem faster.. I tried downloading a file and it stayed around 10 kbps and then dropped back to below 1kbps. I typed in the commands you told me to as well to get that result.

    EDIT: My speeds are still really low. It seems like my download speeds jumped to 10 kbps and now they're back where they were.

    That looks to be the collection of Atheros modules. I did a search for "slow connection Atheros AR928x" and found a few threads that talked about installing kernel backports to fix slow connections (but most of this was at least 2 versions of Ubuntu old, so the fix methods aren't correct for your 10.10 Meerkat install).

    The instructions for Maverick Meerkat backports is here:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports

    I've gotta run for a while, but this is what came up in my search for slow connections on that Atheros WiFi family (but some of it was quite old):

    Do you have a means to create a live CD or USB of 10.04? I have that WiFi chip in an ASUS netbook and it has supported the Atheros 9xxx PCIe WiFi natively since 9.04, I think. I've read where some have had wireless issues with 10.10. Just a thought......

    I'm having similar problems... although my system actually freezes entirely!

    It's similar to this guy's problem:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/inde...t-1063435.html

    I've tried installing backports but it didn't help...

    I'm desparate!
