    WiFi troubles: D-Link DWA-130 on Ubuntu 11.1

    Hello,
    I have a D-Link DWA-130 (rev C1) USB Wireless Adapter, and I'm trying to work with Ubuntu 11.1 on a AMD quad-core desktop.
    Here is my lsusb for more adapter info:
    Code:
    tyler@Tyler:/$ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 2001:3301 D-Link Corp. DWA-130 802.11n Wireless N Adapter(rev.C1) [Realtek RTL8192U]
    Bus 004 Device 002: ID 045e:00b0 Microsoft Corp. Digital Media Pro Keyboard
    Bus 005 Device 002: ID 046d:c518 Logitech, Inc. MX610 Laser Cordless Mouse
    I have downloaded (ethernet works fine) and installed Ndiswapper and my device's driver from the D-Link webpage. I am using the dnet130c1.inf file in the WINXPx64 folder that D-Link provided as my driver. Ndiswapper says "dnet130c1 Hardware present: Yes", so I went to "Configure Network" and under Wireless I add a profile for my SSID and WPA passphrase. Reboot. Adapter is not lighting up and Wi-Fi is greyed out on the systray saying "Wireless Network wireless is disabled". I did iwconfig and ifconfig:
    Code:
    tyler@Tyler:/$ iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.

    I noticed on iwconfig it says Access Point: not associated. So I'm thinking that the driver is fine but somehow the adapter isn't "turned on", aka not looking for network for some reason. This is the same whether or not I unplug the ethernet and I don't have a radio tower key on my keyboard. What is my next step here? I'm stuck

    Re: WiFi troubles: D-Link DWA-130 on Ubuntu 11.1

    Hi, welcome to the forum! You should not need ndiswrapper because ubuntu comes with the driver you need.

    Copy and paste all commands for accuracy.

    Please run these commands one at a time:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rf ndiswrapper
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 ndisgtk
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper.conf
    sudo rm -r /etc/ndiswrapper/* 
    sudo depmod -a
    Then unplug your wired connection and run:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe r8192u_usb
    Thanks

    Hey wildmanne,
    Thanks for your help. I did exactly what you posted to do. Ndiswrapper was successfully removed, but I have not gotten any further with the problem. Systray still says "Wireless Networks: device not ready" and the light is off on the adapter. I tried rebooting and unplugging/plugging the adapter. No change.

    Re: WiFi troubles: D-Link DWA-130 on Ubuntu 11.1

    Doesn't the DWA-130 use the ar9170 chipset, necessitating the use of the (comes with the 2.6 kernel and beyond) carl9170 driver with carl9170-1.fw? Or does the C1 version use another chipset?
    I was just working through this on someone else's machine. May not have been the same revision.

    Dang! OK. Forget the old man. It was in his original post.

    I'll go drool somewhere in my boxers and black socks with garters.

    Carry on!

    Re: WiFi troubles: D-Link DWA-130 on Ubuntu 11.1

    Hi QIII
    Chocolate-Covered Ubuntu, there are probably some that do but each wireless card comes with many chips and that is what you have to go by that is why I ask him to run commands and post information because of so many different chips even in the same card, I will show you how to tell which chip later if you would like.

    SpiritBear I have to get off for tonight, I will start on this tomorrow we have made progress you are using the right driver now that is a big start.
    Thanks

    No thanks. I saw the chipset when I bothered to tip my bifocals and look back at his original post.

    I've been doing this computer gig since the days of punch cards and acoustic couplers. Just the eyes going bad.
