View Full Version : [ubuntu] After upgrade to 10 from 9.x Wireless fails

November 21st, 2010, 12:57 AM
Hi, I upgraded from 9.x to 10.10. Under 9.x my wireless usb dongle worked correctly. After upgrade it does not. I checked the dongle on another machine and it works correctly. I inserted a usb memory stick and the system found it as a drive correctly. I assume from this that both the dongle and usb port are ok. The wireless device is a D-Link G122 A2 which is on the supported list (it ran out of the box on 9.x). The link light does not come on so I am assuming that the process to identify it as a wireless device is not running. If this is correct how do I proceed from here? What other steps need be taken?

Thanks in advance

Forgot to note that lsusb does show the wireless device correctly so the system knows it there.

Hi, all

I will try the other form if the following doesn't yield any info.

Even though I didn't need it in ubuntu 8x or 9x, I tried installing ndiswrapper and adding the windows driver for the D-Ling G122 Rev A2. Now I get several wireless locations, so that part is working. However I cannot complete a connection. The passwords and other configurations worked previously and I did reenter them just in case but still no connect.

The logfile shows the following on each insertion of the dongle:

Nov 21 15:28:35 ernie-desktop kernel: [ 3183.428644] ndiswrapper (iw_set_auth:1602): invalid cmd 12

Nov 21 15:28:35 ernie-desktop kernel: [ 3183.428729] ndiswrapper (set_iw_auth_mode:601): setting auth mode to 7 failed (C0010015)

Any clue as to what the error mean?
