View Full Version : [ubuntu] Creating a script to remove and re install windows driver

November 28th, 2010, 11:47 AM
Hi guys, I am looking for a little help. I am running 10.10 on a Samsung n130. Occasionally my wifi adapter locks up, everything looks like it is connected but I cannot connect to the web. I have worked out that removing and re-installing the windows driver brings it back to life (a restart also works). What I was wondering is could it be possible to create a script that would carry out the removal and installation of the driver with one click of a button.

Many thanks

Have you tried reloading ndiswrapper instead?

sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper && sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

If you really need to reinstall the driver, then a script is just a text file with commands and the executable bit.

Thanks for that. I have created an executable file for enabling and disabling the ndiswrapper. I will see if that works next time I get the problem. Is there a way to work out the commands used for removing and re installing the driver?

'To workout the commands?' They are the same commands you use to do it, no magic here, that is, unless someone else does it for you.
