    Re: Atheros Wireless Woes

    Ok so I ran:

    Code:
    sudo -s
    sed 's/ndiswrapper//' /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    echo 'ndiswrapper' >> /etc/modules
    echo 'blacklist ath_pci' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    echo 'blacklist ath_rate_sample' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    echo 'blacklist ath_hal' >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    and it went great rebooted and in network tools I see that I have a new interface: eth0:avahi, but when I go to configure it it says that the interface doesn't exist! haha. So, I decided to continue on with what you posted thinking it may help so I ran

    Code:
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo rmmod ath_pci
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    and I got some nice error messages after I ran anything with ndiswrapper or wireless in it:

    Code:
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$ sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    ERROR: Module ndiswrapper does not exist in /proc/modules
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$ sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$
    What I'm wondering is if all those installations of madwifi are messing up the ndiswrapper because a total of three different versions have been installed over the course of a few days non of which I could get to work. Finally the output of dmesg | grep -e wlan

    Code:
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$ dmesg | grep -e wlan
    [   43.025187] wlan: 0.9.4
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$
    I guess I'll also post the fresh output of dmesg so that you can see if madwifi is still going crazy lol:

    And now after running these scripts in network tools eth0:avahi is gone. All I really have to say is just wow, I'm thinking about just formatting this partition again and starting fresh with ndiswrapper and seeing what happens now that I think I know what driver to use for it. What do you think?

    (and yes I finally realized how to wrap the code lol)

    post the output of:
    Code:
    cat /etc/modprob.d/blacklist | grep ndiswrapper
    if it returns positive results, please edit /etc/modprob.d/blacklist and remove the blacklist line referring to ndiswrapper. reboot, and post the output of this command:
    Code:
    lshw -C network

    ndiswrapper was not blacklisted or at least not in /etc/modprob.d/blacklist and the outputs of each of the codes you listed are here:

    The other one ran, but when I ran this one I got a fatal error once again:
    Code:
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    [sudo] password for melissa: 
    FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$
    So, where do we go from here? oh yeah, by the way I'm cursed...whenever I have a computer issue of my own it turns out to be this massive production to get it to work, just as this is turning out to be lol.

    Re: Atheros Wireless Woes

    what version of ndiswrapper do you have?
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -v
    did you install ndiswrapper from source by chance?

    also, post the output of:
    Code:
    ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ubuntu/misc/ndiswrapper

    Re: Atheros Wireless Woes

    I installed via add/remove under applications. Apparently my module version is too old? lol.
    Code:
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$ ndiswrapper -v
    modinfo: could not find module ndiswrapper
    module version is too old!
    utils version: '1.9', utils version needed by module: '0'
    module details:
    modinfo: could not find module ndiswrapper
    
    You may need to upgrade driver and/or utils to latest versions available at
    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$
    and

    Code:
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$ ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ubuntu/misc/ndiswrapper
    ls: cannot access /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-386/ubuntu/misc/ndiswrapper: No such file or directory
    melissa@melissa-laptop:~$
    maybe this can shed some light.

    Re: Atheros Wireless Woes

    Okay, try this:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install ndiswrapper-common
    then:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    edit:
    Sorry, I had to update the first command.

    I still get the exact same error about the module not being found.

    Re: Atheros Wireless Woes

    Okay, let's start over from scratch.

    Remove the driver from the ndiswrapper module:
    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -r net5416
    Uninstall ndiswrapper:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude purge ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    Reboot, and post the output of:
    Code:
    lsmod
    ndiswrapper -v
