Cannot get Intel 3945 to work with ndiswrapper on Debian 3.1r1
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 running on Debian 3.1r1
It has an Intell PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network card. I installed ndiswrapper and got it to work with no hassle.
To install the driver I do:
deb:~# ndiswrapper -i /root/driver/w39n51.inf
So no problems so far. Now, if I check installed drivers I get:
deb:~# ndiswrapper -l
Installed ndis drivers:
w39n51 driver present, hardware present
Again, no problems so far. Then, if I try to install the module I get the following:
deb:~# modprobe ndiswrapper
deb:~# dmesg | grep ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper version 1.1 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)
ndiswrapper (import:238): unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe:strncat
ndiswrapper (import:238): unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe:KeQueryTickCount
ndiswrapper (import:238): unknown symbol: NDIS.SYS:NdisIMCopySendPerPacketInfo
ndiswrapper (load_sys_files:456): unable to prepare driver 'w39n51'
ndiswrapper (ndiswrapper_load_driver:114): couldn't load driver 'w39n51'
Looks like the driver needs a Windows executable. Anybody familiar with this issue?
Has anybody been successful installing the driver for Intel 3945ABG?
