    AirLive WL 1600 USB - problem

    Hi everyone,
    I am using a Linux Mint 13 x64 KDE.The drivers which are included in this system does not work properly so I decided to install ndiswrapper. I installed driver, added rtl8187 to black list but when I try to load ndiswrapper nothing happens.

    Code:
    dmesg | grep ndis [   19.313646] ndiswrapper version 1.57 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
    
    [  241.332299]  [<ffffffffa01b2d48>] load_wrap_driver+0x138/0x1f0 [ndiswrapper]

    Could you help me ?

    Let's have a look at some additional diagnostics:
    Code:
    lsusb
    ndiswrapper -l
    ls /etc/ndiswrapper
    Thanks.

    Re: AirLive WL 1600 USB - problem

    Let's make sure rtl8187 is indeed not loaded and therefor properly blacklisted:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep 818
    I assume you do have a 64-bit system:
    Code:
    arch
    Where did the .inf file come from? Is it a Windows XP file?

    Re: AirLive WL 1600 USB - problem

    The *.inf file comes from AirLive page and it's Windows XP file.
    Code:
    arch
    x86_64
    When I wrote in console
    Code:
    lsmod | grep 818
    nothing showed up.

    My favorite kind of problem: everything looks perfect except it doesn't work!

    Let's be sure ndiswrapper loads on boot.
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modules
    If ndiswrapper isn't already in there, add it as a single word at the end. Proofread, save and close gedit. Reboot. Now run:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e 818 -e ndis 
    iwconfig
    Thanks.

    I opened /etc/modules by
    Code:
    nano /etc/modules
    and ndiswrapper was already there.

    Code:
    grep -e 818 -e ndis

    It seems that my card isn't loaded because it's wlan1.

    It seems that my card isn't loaded because it's wlan1.
    What?? If wlan0 is showing up, and you think it's your internal device, then it could only be that rtl8187 is loading and not effectively blacklisted. However, we don't see that in dmesg. Let's dig even deeper in the warp core. Please let us see:
    Code:
    cat /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
    sudo lshw -C network
