can't modprobe ndiswrapper with .inf driver installed
I'm trying to get a D-link DWL-G122 wireless adaptor running on Mandrake LE2005, its in the hardware list as approved.
if I modprobe ndiswrapper BEFORE installing the .inf driver (netrtusb) then I can install the adaptor and , network all works via wlan0 (used drakwizard to install). wlan0 is not automatically re-started at boot , the wizard does not enter wlan0 in modprobe.conf and modprobe.preload does not include an ndiswrapper entry BUT this is OK right now because any attempt to reload ndiswrapper after a boot crashes the machine.
if I type modprobe ndiswrapper after installing the netrtusb driver the command does not complete.
if I add ndiswrapper to modprobe.preload.conf the machine hangs at boot.
I tried also a manual install
ndiswrapper -i /(path)/netrtusb.conf
(comes back with netrtusb driver isntalled and hardware present)
(command does not complete )
I also tried the wizard without doing a modprobe ndiswrapper first, this seems to load the inf file before doing a modprobe and hangs.
what am I doing wrong ?
can I fix this ?
