    Question wi-fi usb sitecom n150 (device 0df6:006b) installation guide needed..

    Hi,


    I am a newbie, who's trying to migrate from windows to ubuntu 13.04.
    However, i cannot get my wireless usb stick (sitecom n150) runs properly.

    I have tried to follow the installation guide, and successfully installed the driver to my desktop (i check via the command "ndiswrapper -l" and get the response "net8192su: driver installed and device (0df6:006b) present".
    However when i typed "iwconfig" the following response appears "eth0 no wireless extensions; lo no wireless extensions"

    I tried also the command dmesg | grep -e ndis -e wlan and there are about more than 20 lines indicate the "unknown symbol" error message, following the
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=885847 suggestion, i re-do the wireless installation file (net8192.inf) several times (using the file from different os folder (e.g. windowsxp64, windows764, windows2k). Additional info, I use the producer's cd as the installation source file (inf) and I am installing ubuntu 13.04 64 bit on my desktop.

    Is there anyone can help me with this problem?


    Thanks,
    mdty

    If you have the package, double-click on it to install it.

    Re: wi-fi usb sitecom n150 (device 0df6:006b) installation guide needed..

    hi i've downloaded the NDISGTK package via http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/am...isgtk/download and installed the package into my desktop.

    folowing the guide (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...er/Ndiswrapper) i then stepped into the guide number 3.1, disable free drivers..
    for this i've also followed the sugestion in the youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBZa17yvl7o and typed
    "sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist"
    then i blacklisted several devices:
    "blacklist bcm43xx"
    "blacklist bcm57xx" (i checked it via lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4)
    "blacklist b43"
    "blacklist 43legacy"
    "blacklist ssb"
    "blacklist rt2500usb"
    then i restarted my machine

    next i follow the guide number 3.3 (installing windows driver via command line), and so on..
    and again when i reached step number 3.4 (load the new driver module) and typed "iwconfig", the screen said "eth0 - no wireless extensions and lo no wireless extensions).

    any idea how can i solve this stuff..?

    Re: wi-fi usb sitecom n150 (device 0df6:006b) installation guide needed..

    ndiswrapper always requires XP files. It also requires that the files match your architecture; either 32- or 64-bit.
    I am installing ubuntu 13.04 64 bit on my desktop.
    Here you are.

    Next, we need to look at the error messages you are getting in dmesg. Can you please copy and paste from the terminal to a text file, transfer it on a USB stick and post it here:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    dmesg | grep ndis

    Re: wi-fi usb sitecom n150 (device 0df6:006b) installation guide needed..

    I am not at all sure this is ever going to work in 64-bit. We have 64-bit inf and sys files and they are clearly marked for XP and include your device; here are some greps:
    chili@Think410:~$ cat sitecom/drivers-and-utility-windows/88_91_92_SU_Driver/WinX64/net8192su.inf | grep XP
    ;; Windows 2000/XP
    ;; Windows 2000/XP parameters
    chili@Think410:~$ cat sitecom/drivers-and-utility-windows/88_91_92_SU_Driver/WinX64/net8192su.inf | grep 006B
    %WL-1100.DeviceDesc% = RTL8192su.ndi, USB\VID_0DF6&PID_006B
    %WL-1100.DeviceDesc% = RTL8192su.ndi, USB\VID_0DF6&PID_006B
    Just on a wild hunch, please try these after removing the older files:
    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -e net8192su
    sudo rm -rf /etc/ndiswrapper/*
    Then extract and install these as before and then give us the same diagnostics.

    #... although the installation seemed successful, when i restart the desktop i cannot get in to ubuntu. Black "error" screen was blocking me in. The error message is like (the typing may be inaccurate):
    [ 73.244972] BUG: unable to handle kernel pagisng request at ffffffffa03e56a8
    [ 73.245014] IP: [<fffffa03d0f13>] object_signaled*0x53/0x90 [ndiswrapper]
    and so on until
    [ 73.258393] drm_kms_helper: panic occured, switching back to text console..

    to get in, i have to unplug my wi-fi usb...
    if i plug the wi-fi usb in the middle of ubuntu session, the error message will appear again and will block everything..

    any suggestion? thanks before..
