    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    mojo risin: you don't have any ndiswrapper module installed for the 3.2 kernel. I'm not sure why that is, but hopefully reinstalling the ndiswrapper packages would fix the problem. Please try:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    Then run "sudo updatedb" and after that finishes, again run:

    Code:
    locate ndiswrapper.ko
    This time, with any luck, it will show an ndiswrapper module installed under the 3.2 kernel.

    Of course, all of the above assumes that you are using the normal Ubuntu kernel that ships with Ubuntu 12.04 (or is provided by Ubuntu updates). You didn't compile the kernel yourself or install it from another source, did you?

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    no I didnt compile the Kernel myself-- I am not as sophisticated as that yet-- Am I right in having to do that under the 3.0 Kernel and then it would install it for the 3.2 one as well? since I won't have internet available for the 3.2 Kernel.

    Code:
    morri@schrabbelkiste:~$ locate ndiswrapper.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.38-10-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.38-11-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.38-8-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko
    /lib/modules/3.0.0-17-generic/kernel/ubuntu/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko
    did this under the 3.0 Kernel and I still don't get it for the 3.2 Kernel.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    mojo risin: if you install the ndiswrapper-common and ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 packages they should install the ndiswrapper module on your system for all kernels. But apparently that is not happening in your case and I'm not sure why.

    It may work to build the module manually from source using Ubuntu's version of the source code, which should compile without issue. To do that, first boot into a kernel where you have Internet access and install the packages you will need:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-source ndiswrapper-dkms
    Then boot into the 3.2 kernel and try compiling ndiswrapper there using the dkms service:

    Code:
    sudo dkms build -m ndiswrapper -v 1.57
    sudo dkms install -m ndiswrapper -v 1.57
    If you run into errors from any of these commands, please post all output. Otherwise, when they are done, try loading the ndiswrapper module with:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    I did the first step rebooted and it had a connection.

    morri@schrabbelkiste:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    morri@schrabbelkiste:~$
    It still doesn't list it above as a module in the 3.2 Kernel .
    So it works now, it must have done the last three steps by itself . Thanks for you help.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    mojo risin: it must have built the module when you installed the ndiswrapper-dkms package, so it wasn't necessary to build it yourself as I had suggested. In any case, I'm glad it works now, and thanks for your patience sorting through the issue.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Ndiswrapper keeps hanging on $sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    pcid is 14e4:4329

    drivers I'm attempting to install are bcmwl5

    Everything goes smoothly until it comes time to load the driver module.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Laize: you should not need to use ndiswrapper for your device, as it is supported by the Broadcom STA driver. To install that driver, type these commands in a terminal (you will need an Internet connection for these commands to work; if you have no way of getting a temporary wired connection, let me know and we can work around it):

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install broadcom-sta-source broadcom-sta-common
    After that, reboot and your device should work. If it still does not, please let me know the output of:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e sta -e b43
    lshw -C Network
    sudo iwlist scan
    cat /etc/lsb-release
