    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    thank you for quick reply i have this from those commands

    Code:
    andrew@storage:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    andrew@storage:~$ dmesg | grep ndis
    [  812.909662] ndiswrapper version 1.57 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
    [  813.254367] ndiswrapper: driver bcmn43xx64 (,08/26/2009, 5.10.79.30) loaded
    [  813.803107] usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper
    woo it now pops up, so i presume it was the ndiswrapper was not loaded?

    And now do you have a wireless interface?
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Since you are running Server Edition, are you running Network Manager or are you going to set up /etc/network/interfaces?

    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    Let's make sure ndiswrapper loads automatically:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules
    exit
    So you are saying you do have an interface wlan0? And it scans and sees your network? I am not completely familiar with Server Edition but I think it does not include Network Manager. I doubt you need it in a server.

    If you are connecting to an insecure network, which I don't recommend, it should be as easy as:
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid mynetwork
    sudo dhclient wlan0
    If you connect, I'd then set up /etc/network/interfaces. So you can find your server on the network, I assume with ssh, I recommend you use a static IP address; be sure it is outside the range used for DHCP in your router. Here is a suggested setup:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
    Leave the lo and loopback lines untouched. Add lines as suggested here:
    Code:
    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet static
    address 192.168.1.101
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway 192.168.1.1
    wireless-essid mynetwork
    Proofread, save and close gedit. Get the system to read and use the changes:
    Code:
    sudo ifdown wlan0 && sudo ifup wlan0
    Check to see if the address is being used:
    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0
    Of course, substitute your details here.

    Post back any questions.

    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    sorry about the delay in replying internet died completly last night but i continued playing around

    i did what you said with
    sudo su
    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules
    exit

    and check the file using

    sudo nano /etc/modules

    and it is present there but i did notice that i haft to pull out and re plug in the USB on reboot or it wont pick it up

    sadly my internet is a public connection, i have managed to single out an ip for static but it requires login to connect to the internet so i have just noticed w3m which alows me to do this so i shall give this ago and report back

    EDIT

    yes it worked i followed this website to share the internet a very good in my eyes
    http://www.somewhereville.com/?p=1196

    the problem was, that ever time i rebooted my server it had to un plug and re plug in my USB stick strange but it works

    i did have another problem in with my old setup using my Windows 7 computer as my shared connection i was able to put its ethernet port as the DNS for example 192.168.2.7 as it was at the time my server ip address is 192.168.2.1 putting that as dns on my laptop did not work but putting my actualy ISP dns worked, i probably missing something from the setup there.

    also i noticed when i edited the /etc/resolv.conf file it screwed up my whole system, so i did not want to change that file as it says to on the website, i am using static for both, but i may make an image now and play around with dhcp

    thank you for your help chili555, but i am sure il be on here again soon

    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    Thanks all - and chili555 - finally got Netgear adaptor working on Fedora Linux using the Windows XP 64 bit bcmn43xx64.inf driver...

    The problem I had was trying to install Win7 driver bcmwlhigh6 which does not work on linux. Only the XP driver works.

    To install ndiswrapper I got the following packages:

    kmod-ndiswrapper-1.57-2.fc17.11.x86_64.rpm
    ndiswrapper-1.57-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm
    kmod-ndiswrapper-3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64-1.57-2.fc17.11.x86_64.rpm

    and stuck them all into a subdirectory. Then ran:

    su -c 'rpm -ivh *.rpm --nodeps'

    This got ndiswrapper going fine. Then after installing the correct .inf then running iwconfig I get:

    $ iwconfig
    em1 no wireless extensions.

    lo no wireless extensions.

    This is a not-well-known fact with NDISwrapper. I wonder what's going to happen when XP is no longer supported in 2014? Presumably there is work in progress to get Win 7 drivers to work. I haven't heard anything though.

    It is, however, mentioned in the man page:
    DESCRIPTION
    ndiswrapper is two parts: user space tool that is used to install Windows XP drivers and kernel module to load the Windows XP drivers. Both are called ndiswrapper.

    Re: Netgear WNDA 3100 v2 wireless adapter -- How to install?

    Hello Chilli555,

    I'm running ubuntu 12.04 32 bit on my beagle board without the gui version. I I have your driver files Broadcom_bcm43xx_USB_32 and tried installing them through ndiswrapper, it said that ndiswrapper command not found.

    Then I tried installing the ndiswrapper, by typing

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper
    it said
    unable to locate package ndiswrapper
    then I tried installing the ndiswrapper-common, which got installed, (thinking that would have ndiswrapper within it with no luck)

    Then I tried installing ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 it said

    ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 is not available, but is referred by another package .... has no installation candidate
    then I installed ndiswrapper-dkms which again got installed but doesn't have ndiswrapper executable within as well...

    What should I try next? Though netgear WNDA 3100 v2 seems to be working fine with windows 7, I'm stuck at this point on ubuntu...

    It would be really great if you could help me in installing the drivers from here!

    Thank you
