    PCI Wireless card added, Marvell 88w8335 [Libertas]

    I added a PCI network card to my PC recently but cannot get it to work

    I have installed the drivers with ndiswrapper but no joy

    I have a USB wireless card that worked out of the box aswell (wlan0).

    Here is the info

    $ lspci | grep Marvell

    For starters it seems to be complaining that /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper needs to be renamed to ndiswrapper.conf.

    Honestly ndiswrapper has always been hit or miss for me. Are you using the right Windows driver in ndiswrapper? It should be for XP and if you run 64-bit you need the one for XP 64-bit. I don't think Vista/7 drivers work at all.

    What problem specifically are you having? Does ifconfig give you an interface for it? Are you having trouble connecting unencrypted and encrypted networks?

    It doesn't show up at all in ifconfig/iwconfig

    I renamed ndiswrapper to ndiswrapper.conf, that got rid of that warning, thanks

    Im not sure if i used x64 drivers! I'll re-install them to be sure and let you know
