    Wireless Card Not Working

    I tried to install drivers for my wireless network card, but am not having much prosperity. I have gotten the drivers to install well enough to get the lights to illuminate and it detects the wireless networks nearby, but it keeps asking me for my password, even after I've given the correct one.
    I have a Belkin F5D8010

    A google search shows that I am having a similar issue as the poster at this site:
    http://unix.stackexchange.com/questi...ord-repeatedly

    I have followed the instructions on this site: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...Belkin_F5D8010

    I have tried to do this a number of times with still no complete success. I thought maybe a reboot would help, so I tried that too. But it seems I get a couple errors when shutting down and it never completes shutdown, so I have to hold down the power button to force shutdown.

    Please help.

    Can't help you with the wireless, but for a safe shutdown when the computer locks up, look here

    No, that didn't help with the reboot either. It didn't respond to the SysRq + REISUB. Just kept giving me the same error every 10 sec:

    Code:

    On a laptop you may need Fn:

    • Press Alt, Fn, SysRq
    • Release Fn
    • Press R
    • Release all
    • Continue the same way with EISUB

    Just try it once when your system hasn't frozen yet. You should get a black screen full of reading material.


    Unfortunately I don't know much about wireless drivers either.

    Re: Wireless Card Not Working

    What driver are you using? I did a quick search and found the windows .exe of that driver. If that' the one your using you'll have to see if you can unzip -a that zip file and use the .sys and the .inf files in ndiswrapper. If you have the Linux source code for that device, you'll have to compile it, blacklist any current modules being used by that device, and put that compiled module in your /etc/modules.conf ...sorry I'm away from my computer and going by memory

    Re: Wireless Card Not Working

    audiomick and Impavidus - Adding atl to the sequence did help. I was able to get it to reboot even though it was stuck and that cpu was not responding, according to the error msg.

    I wrote a script based off the link I gave earlier on loading the drivers. Since after the initial tries, all the commands I followed wouldn't stick, the script automated it for me.
    I have it on pastebin at pastebin.com/KiUSefnV

    Us3r Unfriendly - the driver, I believe is NetAni.inf

    Now that I have rebooted, same resolve... Still didn't stick. No flashing lights on the wireless card. Will work if I run my script, but it'll again keep asking for the password.
