    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Dontknowwhat: Rutilt won't work with the default drivers in Ubuntu. You would need to follow the instructions in post #535 to compile the legacy driver in order to use Rutilt. I really think this is the best way for you to go, and that the problems you experienced before weren't the result of your connection being "ruined" as much as wicd simply needing to be reconfigured to address the change in interface names.

    That said, if you want to try using ndiswrapper instead of the legacy driver, first go here and download the 2004_0505_IS_RT2460_WPA_Drv2.1.0.1.zip file to your desktop. Then run in a terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    cd ~/Desktop
    unzip 2004_0505_IS_RT2460_WPA_Drv2.1.0.1.zip
    sudo ndiswrapper -i 2004_0505_IS_RT2460_WPA_Drv2.1.0.1/WinXp/rt2400.INF
    echo ndiswrapper | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    echo -e 'blacklist rt2500usb\nblacklist rt2500pci\nblacklist rt61pci\nblacklist rt2x00pci\nblacklist rt2400pci\nblacklist rt2x00lib\nblacklist rt2x00usb' | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    Then reboot. This should make your connection work better, and you should be able to connect using NetworkManager or wicd--no need for Rutilt if you're using ndiswrapper.

    If the wireless connection doesn't work after a reboot, please post the output of:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e ndis -e wlan
    sudo iwlist scan
    ndiswrapper -l

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    chelseaD: thanks for that. What happens if you type:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep ath
    sudo rmmod ath_pci
    sudo rmmod ath5k
    sudo rmmod ath9k
    sudo modprobe ath_pci
    iwconfig
    sudo rmmod ath_pci
    sudo modprobe ath5k
    iwconfig
    sudo rmmod ath5k
    sudo modprobe ath9k
    iwconfig
    dmesg | grep -e ath -e wlan
    I know that's a lot of stuff but it will help figure out what's wrong. Your card should be working out-of-the-box in Ubuntu 9.04, since it's Atheros 242x.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    chelseaD: I think the problem is related to the issue described in this bug report and has to do with the ath_pci driver trying to initialize your card, but failing, and leaving it in a zombie state that prevents ath5k (which should be able to drive the card) from being able to initialize it. So the solution is to prevent ath_pci from touching the card, and only let ath5k try to drive it. (Don't worry if you don't understand what all this means; I just wrote it out for the benefit of anyone who's interested.)

    Please try running these commands, which should take ath_pci out of the picture and make sure ath5k is loaded instead:
    Code:
    echo blacklist ath_pci | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    echo ath5k | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    Then shut off your computer and unplug the power cord for a minute or so (and if this is a laptop, remove the battery as well). This will ensure that the hardware defaults back to a normal state so that ath5k can wake up the wireless card.

    Finally, boot back into Ubuntu and see if things work. If they still don't, please let me know the output of:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e ath -e wlan
    lsmod | grep ath

    I've tried so many things to get my linksys WUSB54GC v3 usb adapter to work. Tried and failed so many times.

    ndiswrapper -l returns okay.
