    ndiswrapper (iw_set_auth:1602): invalid cmd 12

    I cannot connect using ndiswrapper and WPA security. dmesg gives me the message in the title. There is a bug here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/459716 but googling does not come up with much info. Has anyone experienced this problem before?

    I have Zenwalk installed on a separate partition and there ndiswrapper works perfectly with the very same driver.

    Ugh. Just hit this exact problem upgrading from 9.04. All worked fine before upgrade, but now get this invalid cmd 12. Wife is not at all happy as it's the front end for my mythtv dvr, so no watching recorded TV until it's fixed. heeeeelp

    I've got this problem after I had upgraded from Dapper....

    Not sure if this will help anyone else, but for me there are now native drivers for the WNDA3100 (my wireless devices) in 9.10, so I removed ndiswrapper and am using ar9170usb instead. Seems a little flakey on startup - haven't figure out why yet - but at least it's got me going again.

    Unfortunately the native driver gives me only 10% of the speed I can get with ndiswrapper...

    I have tried Linux Mint and Sabayon on the same laptop. As I thought I could not connect in Mint because it is based on Ubuntu. However, I had no problem in Sabayon, which is based on Gentoo. So it is definitely Ubuntu or Debian problem.

    Re: ndiswrapper (iw_set_auth:1602): invalid cmd 12

    Yup, the native driver is - how can I put this politey - not very fast and highly flakey as foxy pointed out. Since I'm trying to use the same basic Windows driver with ndiswrapper, I can only guess it must be some change in ndiswrapper or wpa_supplicant that has caused the issue. I might try downgrading them a couple of versions before taking the drastic step of rolling back to 9.04 (i.e. re-installing). Anyone had any luck with this (or other) approaches?

    I have the same problem with Ubuntu 9.10 and ndiswrapper with AVM Fritz WLAN stick. If the WLAN is unsecured the connection works without any problems but when using WPA, nothing works.
    With DHCP I don't get an IP. With static addresses, the connection works sometimes but most of the time it doesn't.
    I also get that "invalid cmd 12" in dmesg.
