    Re: DWA-131 Ver b Frm/w 2.00

    As you can see, there is nothing significant here. How about:
    Code:
    cat /var/log/syslog | grep -i 330d | tail -n20
    cat /var/log/syslog | grep -i usb | tail -n20
    If we can't identify and correct the crash, we ought to remove ndiswrapper and try another approach. I am rather unclear, at this point, what other approach is even available!

    Is your a 64-bit system?

    So I did some research and it seems that there was a bug in the kernel that caused the crash with the DWA-131 plugged in once the system begin to recognize it. To fix this I upgraded to the newest kernel version (3.7.4). Unfortunately, this only fixed the crashing issue. The device still is working.

    Also to answer your question my processor is 64bit.

    May we see:
    Code:
    modinfo rtl8192cu | grep 330D
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    Thanks.

    Code:
    modinfo rtl8192cu | grep 330D
    returned nothing and
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    returned "FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found."

    Let's try an old trick since we know ndiswrapper is out of the picture for now:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rtl8192cu
    echo "2001 330D" | sudo tee /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rtl8192cu/new_id
    Now let's see if there is any action in the message logs:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep 8192
    And if a wireless interface, ideally wlan0, was created:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    And if it scans and sees networks:
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan

    Re: DWA-131 Ver b Frm/w 2.00

    The next thing I suggest is compiling ndiswrapper against your new kernel version. Then see if ndiswrapper and the Windows XP .inf will finally succeed. Here is an outline: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...1#post12527981 Please see post #122. Since you already have the .inf and .sys files installed, it ought to, if it's going to, start up when you modprobe ndiswrapper.

    Off for the evening. They insist I have food and sleep around here.

    Followed the instructions but the device still didn't start.

    Are there any informative messages here?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep ndis
    I have just about exhausted all my mojo except newegg.com.
