    Problems with RTL8185L on Ubuntu 9.04 RC

    Hi,
    I've got a problem with RTL8185L (using a PCI card) on Ubuntu 9.04 RC.
    When it's connected, After booting ubuntu, when you connect (i have enabled auto-connection), it just simply freezes.
    I searched in different threads to install the driver, but it doesn't work.
    Can you help me, please ?
    Thanks, DL21.

    EDIT :

    Here's how I solved my problem (Used "Amarina Wireless PCI CARD 54M 802.11G 54 Mbps" installation cd) :

    - Boot with "Ubuntu 9.04 (recovery mode)" at GRUB screen.
    - Choose "root" when asked for mode

    - Open your CD tray and put the "Amarina Wireless PCI CARD 54M 802.11G 54 Mbps" installation cd

    - Install windows xp drivers with ndiswrapper (remove the $) :
    Code:
    $ mkdir ~/.driver/
    $ mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom0/
    $ cd /media/cdrom0/wl8185\ PCI/Driver_1097_2KXP_0201/WINXP/
    $ cp net8185.inf ~/.driver/
    $ cp rtl8185.sys ~/.driver/
    $ cd ~/.driver/
    $ ndiswrapper -i net8185.inf
    $ ndiswrapper -m
    $ modprobe -r rtl8180
    $ modprobe ndiswrapper
    - Blacklist the default driver (remove the $) :
    Code:
    $ nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    - At the end of the file, add :
    Code:
    blacklist rtl8180
    - Close the file with Ctrl + X.

    - Reboot your computer, it'll be working !

    When you say "freezes" does the whole computer freeze?

    Hrm, never mind, it was just a conflict between drivers...
    I told how I resolved the problem in first post.
