View Full Version : [ubuntu] invalid driver ndiswrapper

November 3rd, 2008, 05:42 PM
I've just installed ndiswrapper through synaptic package manager, and went to system>administration>wireless, ndiswrapper then prompted me to search for the .inf file of my driver.

In windows, when I go to device manager>network adapters, there are two listed:

LAN-Express AS IEEE 802.11g PCI-E Adapter
Marvell Yukon 88E8039 PCI-E Fast ethernet controller

The first is my wireless card I think, and I found two .inf driver files for them: netathr.inf, netathrx.inf, but when I put them across to ubuntu, selected them in ndiswrapper, and hit install, it said "Invalid driver" for each.

Can anyone tell me what to do? It's impossible to sort anything out on my ubuntu partition without having the internet.

(I also just went to the properties of the first driver > driver tab> driver details, and it gave some other location in system32>drivers> pointing to some file like atrh.sys, but this isn't an inf file like synaptic asks for but a system file, so I don't know if that helps)
