I have an Acer Aspire 3000 with the bcm4318 network card. When I started off with this computer, I was using ndiswrapper in Ubuntu 6.06, and have set up this config using the directions at http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=218
several times without a problem. However, today I decided to to a new install on my system (had nothing better to do) with the shiny new Ubuntu 6.10. Once I had the new version on my box, I used the same set of instructions to get wireless working, but to no avail. When I run the following two lines
modprobe -l | grep bcm43xx
modprobe -l | grep ndiswrapper
I see that both are loaded, though the line I added to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist should of taken care of bcm43xx. The only thing I can think of with this is that 6.10 switched from init to upstart, so perhaps that has someting to do with that. Also, when I tried rmmod on bcm43xx, I got the following
crashsystems@crashsystems:~$ sudo rmmod bcm43xx
ERROR: Module bcm43xx does not exist in /proc/modules
So I am at a complete loss as to how to get this to work. Does anyone have any sugestions on how I can successfully blacklist or remove the bcm43xx module from my system, or any other way to get ndiswrapper to work with 6.10? Your help will be greatly appreciated.
