you have no idea how much time I am wasting after this.
I downloaded ndiswrapper 1.31 and followed the instructions, but it does not make it because it can't find the headers

first did 'sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`' (0 upgraded, 0... 0 ...0)
and made sure that there is a link from /lib/modules/VERSION/build to the kernel source

still, it does not work.

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

and then install the headers

I do not have network connectivity on ubuntu if I cant use the wireless card!
can only download via other computer and USB key, or CD's

I really thank you very much for your help, but I am afraid I have to give up on ubuntu :-(

Question About that ndiswrapper....

I try installing my driver for the Network Card and i get an invalid driver error. I am not quite sure that I am using the right driver, but it was the only .inf that I could find. Here are my specs....

Gateway Laptop
AMD turion 64
Broadcom 802.11g network adapter
and the driver I am trying to load is bcmwl5.inf

I can't find what to do. I am using ndiswrapper 1.8 utils also.




Kubuntu 6.10 edgy release

dig in to find what wifi chipset does your wifi card has.
we'll take it from there.

two questions...

are you using 64 bit Edgy, and if so, are you using a 64 bit driver?

The 8335 64 bit driver

Did anybody get the Marvell 8335 work in amd64 kernel?

You need to install an 64 bit driver with ndiswrapper and the only one I found so far is this: SKD Driver

I formatted and now I have 32 bit because of that but I would like to go to 64. I might be biased but I think the system was smother with 64.

Before I spend hours with the format and updates I would like to know for sure that the card would work.
