    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Hi all-
    I've gone through the steps here and done everything except that I'm running 1.53 instead of 1.54...had trouble updating...

    Here is my lshw output
    *-network

    Does the network DISABLED message mean that my wireless card is physically or by bios turned off? I don't have a physical switch.

    Thanks for the help,

    Mike

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Mike: you should not need to use ndiswrapper for this card. Please post the output of the following commands and I'll give you instructions for getting the card working:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep -i broadcom
    uname -rm
    ls /lib/firmware
    sudo iwlist scan
    I suspect that you just need to install firmware to get this card working under the b43 driver, but if I see the output of the commands above, I'll know for sure what your situation is.

    Angry dmesg errors.

    I have spent the past week working on this to no avail. I can't get my Wi-Fi working no matter what I try. My problem seems to be somehow related to the output of "dmesg | grep -e ndis -e wlan". I'm experienced with computers, but very new to Linux and totally lost. I've tried 2 different PCI cards to no avail and finally went out and purchased a Belkin F5D7050A USB adapter because it's supposed to work right out of the box. It don't! I'm at a total loss at this point!

    Until I get this working I can't get that computer on line. There is no internet connection in the room the computer is installed in. This side of the building relies on Wi-Fi for connection. I've had to copy the output from terminal to a flash stick and take it to another computer just to post this message.

    Below is the outputs of ndiswrapper -l, lsusb, lshw -C Network, and dmesg | grep -e ndis -e wlan. I think this should be everything. If there is any more information needed to help be resolve this please let me know and I'll provide it.

    I'm currently using Intrepid Ibex version of Ubuntu.

    Thanks in advance for any help in getting this resolved.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Mike: that's a bit strange. You do appear to firmware installed for your device, but it doesn't seem to be working. I happen to have the same exact wireless card and have never had problems with it on Ubuntu 8.10 using the b43 driver, so it should definitely work.

    It's possible that the firmware was corrupted. Please run these commands to download a fresh copy:
    Code:
    sudo rm -f /lib/firmware/b43*
    sudo rm -f /lib/firmware/bcm*
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter
    After that, reboot, and hopefully the device will work. If not, please post the output of these commands:

    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e b43
    lshw -C Network
    ls /lib/firmware
    sudo iwlist scan
    We can always resort to ndiswrapper if b43 continues to prove problematic.

    Grumpster: it looks like your card is working well enough to allow you to see networks, but your dmesg output indicates that it's unable to complete the connection. You may have better luck if you try connecting using wicd instead of NetworkManager (wicd is an alternative connection manager that works better in some cases than Ubuntu's default). To install wicd, first download this file and transfer it via a USB stick to the Ubuntu machine. Then double-click on the file to install it. After it's installed, launch wicd from your Applications>Internet menu. Are you able to connect?

    If wicd also fails to connect, then the problem likely lies with the wireless driver, rather than the connection client. In that case,you should run these commands to enable ndiswrapper (currently, you're still using the native Linux driver for your device, rather than ndiswrapper, even though ndiswrapper is installed):
    Code:
    echo -e 'blacklist rt2500usb\nblacklist rt2500pci\nblacklist rt61pci\nblacklist rt2x00pci\nblacklist rt2400pci\nblacklist rt2x00lib\nblacklist rt2x00usb' | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    (Make sure you enter that command exactly as written and all on one line; it's probably best to copy and paste.)

    After running that command, reboot your computer and try connecting again. If it still fails, please post the output of these commands:
    Code:
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep -e ndis -e wlan -e rt73
    uname -rm
    Please also let me know what the name of your network is.

    If possible, you may also want to try disabling security on your router to see if you can connect then. Being able to connect temporarily with security disabled would at least make it easier to fix this problem permanently, since you'd have your Ubuntu machine online.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Thanks for this guide - I now have an almost usable TP-Link TL-WN821N 802.1b/g/n USB stick (using the IOGEAR GWU623 driver).

    Now if I would just manage to get it to connect to a wpa/wpa2 (personal) network.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    excogitation: first, you should try using wicd to connect instead of NetworkManager. In some cases wicd handles WPA better.

    If wicd also fails, you may want to try playing with different security options on your router. It currently looks like it's using both WPA1 and WPA2 at the same time, which may be confusing ndiswrapper. Does it work better if you use only WPA1 or only WPA2?

    Also, I assume you tried connecting with security disabled and it worked?

    Thanks, pytheas22.

    I'm at daggers drawn with wicd (last had it successfully working in Intrepid).
    I still gave it a try, but it won't connect (maybe I'll play with it a bit more later - though it did crash a lot).

    Of course I did try different wlan settings like b/g, g only, b/g/n,
    wpa, wpa2, wpa&wpa2 - but it doesn't seem to make a difference (not connecting anyways).

    Yes, unencrypted does work (so that's a start).

    If you look at the picture - I'm quite happy with network-manager (print screen didn't work with that dialog open).
    The features of the network administration tool should be integrated into gnome-network-manager and usbnet doesn't always work like told with gnm, but it's getting better.

    There are ~20 networks visible in some places of my apartment that's why I'm trying escape to the 5GHz wave band
