problems with wireless card drivers


Patience, patience, patience. I am a recent refugee from the cult of microsoft, and I will never go back, I don't care how hard things get with Linux.

But this is hard.

I cleared all traces of microsoft from my machine and installed PCLinuxOS. Things have gone without a hitch, except for a few problems that I can't yet solve.

The OS does not acknowledge my wireless card. And I don't know what to tell it, because I have no documentation for this computer (Gateway MT6458), which is relatively new, and I don't know what the card is. I don't know anything about the card other than I suspect that it is made by Marvell.

I tried many ideas from different sites, including messing around with NDIS, but I will confess that this is a bit tricky, although I'm willing to learn.

Here's what happens:

1) I go to Network & Internet in the PCLinuxOS Control Center, and attempt to set up a new network interface, choosing "Wireless."

2) It then asks me to "select the network interface to configure" and gives me only one checked option: "use a windows driver (with nsiswrapper)"

3) I click this and it gives me about 10 choices of drivers, but none of them work.

If you need screen shots for any of these, let me know and I will send them.

So I'm really not sure what to do. I have a lot of patience when it comes to these things, so I'll do what it takes. I'm wondering what to do about the greater issue of not knowing much about the hardware on my computer. For instance, I haven't tried to use s-video with Linux on here yet, but I suspect that will be tough as well. How to make Linux jive with all of the hardware?

any help is appreciated!
Mike

on edit, I would like to add that I believe the card is ‎88E8038 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller by Marvell. I think this because pclos recognizes the ethernet card as such, and I believe they are wrapped into one. I just checked the ndiswrapper list and it doesn't have any marvell products in it. Am I screwed?

first we need you to open a terminal and type su the push enter then type your root password now you have assumed root. then type dmesg and post it then type lspci and post it then type lspci -n and post it. then type uname -a and post it. this will tell use in reverse order the kernel and computer the card chip version the card chip maker the card being loaded and the error of why it is not being loaded. and if it is being loaded according to dmesg then how to configure your card is it going to use a ndiswrapper windows driver or a linux driver so before we configure lets find out what the device and kernel is cool good we'll be waiting

From the output of dmesg i will say our problem is you have not got ndiswrapper loaded. you can confirm that by running lsmod as root. This is easily corrected by running modprobe ndiswrapper. Once you have done that run ndiswrapper -l and it will tell you something like

<driver_name> driver present, hardware present

If you still having problems after you load ndiswrapper paste the output of dmesg | grep ndis.

Also you may want to check out the linux wireless website at linuxwireless.org and ndiswrapper at ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net as they provide support on how to setup wireless for linux

I will check out that website.

Those commands don't work in my terminal. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Hi,

When making changes to the system you must be root. You can 'su' to become root, do a 'man su' to understand the command.

In the future when you post long lists or data, use the vbcode # or quote at the top of the reply window. That way the list will be easier to read.

If you could post the output of 'lspci -vv', the diagnosis would be easier then the 'lspci -n'.

If you go the NDIS way then be sure to use the current M$ windows driver (.inf) for your device.

Is anyone still out there? I've tried the commands listed in the above post and no luck. lsmod and modprobe do not even work in my terminal under root.

Hi,

If you cannot use the 'lsmod' as root from the cli then you have other issues that must be corrected. Where did you get your iso for the distro? If you downloaded did you check the md5sum for the iso and the burnt image?
