    Unhappy Re: HOWTO: WLan via Ndiswrapper

    I tried it with several different .inf files and got "no ndiswrapper utils found!" for each one. Am I doing something wrong?

    Re: HOWTO: WLan via Ndiswrapper

    Well, I found the solution to my last problem. The utilities weren't installed, only ndiswrapper. My card (Encore ENWLI-W) has several drivers and I think I installed the wrong one first. How do I uninstall it?

    From my dmesg:

    Re: HOWTO: WLan via Ndiswrapper

    Well, figured that one out as well. I've got what I think is the correct driver installed, but it doesn't appear to be finding the wireless card. iwconfig yields:
    lo no wireless extensions.
    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    And dmesg now shows:
    [ 1313.680301] ndiswrapper version 1.45 loaded (smp=yes)
    [ 1313.789396] ndiswrapper: driver mrv8000c (Marvell,02/22/2005,3.1.1.7) loaded

    [ 1314.705968] usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper

    I think I'm going to try a different slot for the card. Any other ideas?

    Re: HOWTO: WLan via Ndiswrapper

    Hi, thanks for writing this up, but I need some help.

    When I type "sudo make install" after sudo make, etc, I get this:

    josh@josh-laptop:~/internet2/ndiswrapper-1.2$ sudo make
    make -C driver
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/josh/internet2/ndiswrapper-1.2/driver'
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/josh/internet2/ndiswrapper-1.2/driver \
    NDISWRAPPER_VERSION=1.2 \
    EXTRA_VERSION= modules
    make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.24-16-generic'
    scripts/Makefile.build:46: *** CFLAGS was changed in "/home/josh/internet2/ndiswrapper-1.2/driver/Makefile". Fix it to use EXTRA_CFLAGS. Stop.
    make[2]: *** [_module_/home/josh/internet2/ndiswrapper-1.2/driver] Error 2

    make[1]: *** [default] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/josh/internet2/ndiswrapper-1.2/driver'
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    What can I do? Thanks.

    Re: HOWTO: WLan via Ndiswrapper

    Just wanted to post a thanks. I have been working on an old old laptop, stuck in the command line for several hours because the actual adm8211 drivers are broken, or least don't seem work with WEP. Using this guide, and the windows driver disk the card came with. BOOM... working. Yay I can finally install fluxbox/icewm and mess with them.

    HP Pavilion zv5133ea
    AMD64 3000+ met 512 Mb intern
    Nvidia GeForce4 440 Go 64M
    Broadcom 802.11b Wlan
    Realtek RTL8139 NIC
    Ubuntu Hoary Hedgedog 5.04 64Bit / WinXp dual boot

    HOWTO:
    The first problem I have encountered was that the ndiswrapper-1.1 version didn't work. My drivers were installed however the command iwlist did't show any APs, the solution I found was to install the newest version of ndiswrapper: Ndiswrapper-1.2-RC1 .

    The next step is to get drivers, I'm working with 64 Bit Ubuntu so I need 64 Bit drivers, here is a link to get windows wlan drivers for most Wlan cards: Wlan drivers . This link provides also 64 bit drivers for all broadcom cards.

    Ok, on to the installation:

    Step 1: Remove the old ndiswrapper and all links to it's driver.
    Code:
     			  
    sudo modprobe -r bcmwl5 
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper 
    sudo apt-get remove ndiswrapper-utils 
    sudo rm -r /etc/ndiswrapper/ 
    sudo rm -r /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper
    Step 2: Install Linux-headers.

    Code:
     		     
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.10 (enter your version of linux headers or usr the synaptic package manager)
    Step 3: Install Ndiswrapper.

    Code:
         
    cd /home/username/ 
    sudo tar xvzf ndiswrapper-1.2-rc1 
    cd /home/username/ndiswrapper-1.2-rc1/ 
    sudo make 
    sudo make install
    Step 4: Load drivers with ndiswrapper.

    Code:
    cd /the_dir_you_put_the_wlan_drivers_into/ 
    sudo ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf (fill out your own drivers for bcmwl5.inf) 
    sudo ndiswrapper -l (shows if the driver is installed)
    Step 5: Load ndiswrapper and check if it worked.

    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper 
    sudo dmesg (shows that the card is installed (hopefully)) 
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan (shows all APs surrounding you)
    Step 6: Make sure Ndiswrapper is loaded during bootup.

    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -m
    Step 7: Configure your Wlan card.

    Code:
         
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid name_of_AP (the name you found by using iwlist wlan0 scan) 
    iwconfig wlan0 enc <key> (fill out your WEP key (if you have one)) 
    sudo dhclient wlan0 (gets a dynamic IP adress) 
    sudo ping -c 3 www.ubuntu-linux.nl (tests the connection)
    Step 8: If you are using WPA encryprion check this thread WPA encryption voor Ndiswrapper .

    I hope this will help some people. If there are comments or extra info you have please add it to this thread, it could help somebody.

    All worked well and I pinged, it replied: 10 packets transmitted 10 received 0% packet loss. When i pinged my ISP www.talktalk.net I got the following: 461 packets transmitted 0 received 100% loss.
    I can ping yahoo, google and the BBC but not ebay.
    I right clicked on the connection icon at top right hand of screen. It says Speed 11% and all the other settings look right.
    I have followed Kevdogs instructions and also installed ndiswrapper 1.53
    Any help appreciated.

    Re: HOWTO: WLan via Ndiswrapper

    There is no way in hell that the average person, including me cn type all these lines without typos. I don't know why a a simple himan interactive batch like file isn't whipped up for these occasions. In dos this can be done easily , asking for user input to variables. Like 5 hours of time could save endusers millions of collective hours. I cannot even read the solution without my eyes rolling back in my head long enough to see what appears to me little more meaningful than a combination to a very complex combination lock. aGAIN, this should be scripted or programmed.

    At very least is there not some simple scripting language a user that find this can post into some bat file, enter input dialog and distrubute in forum. Like a bat file posting.

    Hieronymus YOU ARE THE MAN!!
    I had it going a long time ago.
    Tried the same exact same procedure... no luck!
    The whole purge startover bit probably did the trick, I just wasnt sure of the procedure!

    THANKS SOOO MUCH!!

    Re: HOWTO: WLan via Ndiswrapper

    enter the flamebait - don't use ndiswrapper...use native drivers

    sorry, i know it isn't very constructive, but i despise ndiswrapper and wireless cards are cheap
