88w8335 [Libertas] ndiswrapper or native in 2008?
 
This is not another ndiswrapper thread :)

Please, does anybody know how to make said 88W8335 work with the native linux driver?

The driver name is libertas.ko and it autolads the
ieee80211_crypt.ko
ieee80211.ko

Code:

the kernel is 2.6.24.5-smp of Slackware 12.1
and the wireless tree is
Code:

git-1.1.13
in the modinfo

the dmesg is:
Code:

...
ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, git-1.1.13
ieee80211: Copyright (C) 2004-2005 Intel Corporation <jketreno@linux.intel.com>

and lspci shows:
Code:

...
00:0a.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03)
...

any clues?

aparently there is hope:
http://www.saillard.org/linux/mrv8k/
this seems to be about or already included in the kernel git tree?
(besides ath7k? )
::in hope a knowledgable takes over from here::

Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless

Jvaldivia, I've got a wireless card that uses the Marvell 88w8335 chipset, and my Windows drivers are working great with ndiswrapper. I've uploaded the drivers to:

http://drop.io/88w8335

Let me know if they work OK for you too.

I have the wireless card working with ndiswrapper, Im trying to set the card on Monitor mode and ndiswrapper does not allow that.

That's why I'm searching for a native driver like Intel cards have.

My wirless card is TrendNET brand.
