    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ktz84: sorry for not responding sooner, but glad to hear you've got it working now. Let me know if you have any more issues.

    elhorla: that's strange that it thinks you have no ndiswrapper module on your system. What is the output of:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    sudo updatedb
    locate ndiswrapper
    If necessary, you can install ndiswrapper from source, but it really should be there already.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ndiswrapper 1.9 is installed but when I try to mount the module I keep getting this.

    $sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release.
    FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.
    i'm having the exact same problem. ndiswrapper is installed. it recognizes my drivers. even with ndisgtk the driver pops up and says it sees my device... but yet still.. i cannot use my wireless.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    No worries phytheas22 but I will take you up on the offer. Connection was solid and no system hangs. Actually all running very, very well. Was getting 90% most of the time. Anyway turned the computer of last night and now this morning I can't get it to connect at all.

    It keeps asking me for my WPA2 key which I input correctly. Checked it numerous times however it keeps coming back asking me to input it. I check the error log in the router and I can't see any attempts to connect.

    It will connect unencrypted fine, or at least I can to next doors and that was by accident when I chose the wrong router to connect to.

    Any ideas where to go from here.

    Thanks

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ktz84: you might have better luck if you used wicd to connect. To install wicd, type:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wicd
    Then launch it from the Applications>Internet menu. It may do better with WPA connections (if not and you want NetworkManager back, just type "sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome").

    If this doesn't help, let me know.

    : please post the output of:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    sudo updatedb
    locate ndiswrapper

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    OK,

    wicd seems to throw up it's own problems.

    If I don't specify a static ip address then it basically hangs trying to obtain and ip address. The log shows this:

    I note that it says:

    failed to ping: 192.168.1.254

    however this is definitely the router gateway as confirmed by my windows 7 ipconfig output:

    Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection 4:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : lan
    Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::dda6:5019:45f:3622%22

    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.254

    Appreciate your thoughts on what I should try next.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ktz84: sorry for not replying faster. I'm wondering which driver you're actually using right now. There should be a native driver for your card built into Ubuntu, and it's possible that that's claiming your card now instead of ndiswrapper, or vice-versa, and that this is the reverse of the situation from a few days ago where things were working.

    If you could please post the output of these commands, it would be helpful:
    Code:
    lshw -C Network
    ndiswrapper -l
    lsmod | grep rt
    dmesg | grep -e rt -e wlan
    You could also try switching between ndiswrapper and the native driver to see if that allows you to connect. To switch to the native driver, you would type:

    Code:
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo rmmod rt2870sta
    sudo modprobe rt2870sta
    And to go from the native driver to ndiswrapper:
    Code:
    sudo rmmod rt2870sta
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    I believe you are right about the Belkin and indeed I had read the RT2870 thread however it just doesn't show any lights whether I use ndiswrapper or not.

    In any case I think I am sorted now as the speedtouch dongle is now working, including reboots. I am no longer using any ndiswrapper drivers therefore the speedtouch must be being supported natively though I can't see anything out there that says it is.

    In any case if I do ndiswrapper -l - there is no output so I guess that no drivers are installed so it must be getting them from the system.

    I believe it worked initially and then failed was because initially I plugged the speedtouch in before putting in the ndiswrapper drivers. It was only when I rebooted that the ndisrwapper took over and that's why I was unable to connect as I had previously done so.

    If it fails I will certainly head back to your last post and provide the info.

    As a matter of interest my lsusb output is:

    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 06b9:0121 Alcatel Telecom SpeedTouch 121g Wireless Dongle

    Thanks again for you time. It was very much appreciated.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    I have tried various things but haven't been successful with making wireless work on my laptop.. I am posting the output of lshw -c network

    *-network DISABLED
    description: Wireless interface

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    ezamit: if you have a switch for turning the wireless card on (either a physical switch or a software software, like Fn+F2), make sure that's on. This is probably the problem.

    If that doesn't help, please post the output of these commands (in this order):
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e ath -e wlan -ie radio
    lspci -v
    sudo iwlist scan
    iwconfig
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode 11g
    iwconfig

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Thanks a lot for the quick response Pytheas. I kept trying and it finally worked. I had installed wicd to troubleshoot and for some reason it was causing the issue.

    I reinstalled network manager using Synaptic and i was able to see the wireless networks. i am not sure why wicd wasn't working but i am just happy thatit is finally working. Atheros is a nightmare chipset..

    Thx again for your response..
