Unhappy 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?

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.
