    Linksys WMP300N in Ubuntu 12.10

    Hi

    I have been searching all over the internet for a while now and I'm unable to find a solution to my problem.

    I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my stationary computer with an old Linksys WMP300N V.2 wireless network adapter which doesn't seem to work. When ubuntu is installed I can see a list of all available wireless networks, but when I try to connect to my network (hosted by an Apple Airport Extreme) it tries to connect for a few minutes and then it asks for the password again. This is repeated till I cancel. I have the same problem when trying to connect to other wireless networks.

    After reading various forums I tried installing the original drivers via ndiswrapper, which gives me a "FATAL: module ndiswrapper not found." error. If I install the driver using the terminal I am not getting the error. After trying to install the driver with ndiswrapper (either in the GUI or in the terminal) I am unable to see any wireless networks and it seems that the adapter is "disabled".

    Can anyone help me solve this problem?

    Btw. the linksys WMP300N Works fine in windows 7 and I have never had any trouble with it before I installed ubuntu.

    Hi,

    imho its an Atheros device. Uninstall ndiswrapper via:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv ndiswrapper
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndiswrapper* ndisgtk
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper.conf
    sudo rm -r /etc/ndiswrapper/*
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    After that, deactivate the hardware encryption of the driver via:
    Code:
    echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf
    Reboot and check:
    Code:
    lspci -nnk
    lsmod
    iwconfig
    BTW: I recommend pure WPA2-AES (CCMP) encryption, if possible.

    Thanks, although when I do that I am back where I started. It just tries to connect to the network for a few minutes and then it asks for password, which is repeated.. It never actually connects to the network. I am using WPA2 Personal encryption (can't remember if it is AEK or TKIP - pretty sure it is AEK though).

    Do you want me to copy-paste all the information it returns? Because it is quite a lot.. Or do is there anything specific I should look for?

    wlan0     13 channels in total; available frequencies :
              Channel 01 : 2.412 GHz
              Channel 02 : 2.417 GHz
