ndiswrapper ubuntu amd64


I'm having trouble with ndiswrapper and the linksys wmp54g (Ralink RT2500). I've used the driver from the linksys website, but it was 32 bit and didn't work. Then I tried the 64 bit drivers from Ralink. None of them work.

I'm running dual amd64 chips under kubuntu with kernel 2.6.


ndiswrapper -l shows that the driver is installed and the hardware is present.


I've tried the newest ndiswrapper release and the newest ndiswrapper snapshot.





The output of dmesg includes the following:


ndiswrapper version 1.2 loaded (preempt=no,smp=yes)

Is your card listed as supported on the ndiswrapper website?

Check that page:

http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...index.php/List

and see if your card is supported by ndiswrapper.

The card is listed as supported, but no mention is made of 64 bit / 32 bit, and I would hate to have to assume that the 64 bit won't work without more input.

It might. You would need to look for a Windows XP x64 driver. I'm not sure if ndiswrapper supports x64 Windows drivers yet though.

Hey all, just wanted to let you know that I was able to get teh wmp54g working in Debian Sarge using the drivers from ralinktech dot coms website. The forum won't let me post links yet, sorry. It took me a bit longer than the ndiswrapper option, but mainly because I didnt' have a kernel source to compile against. I had to recompile my kernel. Maybe we can get these submitted to the kernel team for inclusion with the default compile. Thanks. If you have questions, email me at shaun yakk therabbithole dock 0rg
