modprobe ndiswrapper STILL freezing system, after 16k stack kernel


Trying to get a wireless driver to work WUSB11 v. 2.6, using ndiswrapper

AFter super human effort (since I am new to Linux), I finally figured out how to change the kernel stack size with the two .stk16 files from linuxant.

but it still freezes, exactly the same way it did before installing the 16k stack Kernel.

So, what gives? And please, a step by step answer a newb can follow.

Thanks

I had this problem when I used the wrong windows driver. When I looked my driver had 3 .inf files, like driver.inf drivera.inf and drivert.inf. Couldn't find out what the diff was but I tried them one by one until it stopped crashing.

Thanks for the advice. I only have one inf file. But I am thinking that I have to come up with a driver based on the chipset of the actual device rather than the one that came on the cd. So now its a whole research project.
