    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    haha, here I am! Thanks for the suggestion above, wildmanne39, which would have been my first try as well.

    Since modifying /etc/modules doesn't seem to do the trick, why don't you try writing a boot script that will run the command "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper" automatically whenever your computer turns on? Hopefully this will achieve the same effect as entering it manually in a terminal.

    You can set up a boot script to run that command by first typing:

    cd /etc/init.d
    sudo gedit ndiswrapper.sh

    A blank file will open. Add these lines to it:
    Code:
    #/bin/bash
    
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    Then save and close the file, and run these commands:
    Code:
    sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/ndiswrapper.sh
    sudo update-rc.d ndiswrapper.sh defaults
    This should do it. Reboot and let us know if your wireless connection comes up automatically.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    It's working! Amazing! Now I witness the full power of linux and scripts.

    Thank you very much sir, I'll bookmark that thread just in case

    If that's not too much, could you explain a bit what the script you just had me write did? I mean, precisely, what the commands do etc.?

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Hi,
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    unloads the ndiswrapper driver.
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    reloads the driver.
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    brings your wireless back online.

    The script does the same thing that you were doing manually after you logged on but it now is doing it automatically when you log in.
    Thanks

    Drumclem: glad it worked. wildmanne39's explanation of what those commands do is pretty thorough.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Is there a new ndiswrapper version out there by now which works with Linux Kernels 3.2 +? I am atm at the Kernel 3.0 because the ndiswrapper version that I have does not work anymore in 3.2.(says version is too old but the latest version also seemed to be to old according to a friend who tested that.)

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    mojo risin: the Ubuntu 12.04 repositories contain packages for ndiswrapper which should presumably work with the 3.2 kernel, since that is the one Ubuntu 12.04 uses. Have you tried simply installing them with:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    If you are trying to compiling ndiswrapper from source on the 3.2 kernel and running into problems, you probably need a patch. But unless you have a reason not to, you should probably just use the packages.
