Well, maybe not so much a disaster
, but nothing is working :P
I've been building Linux From Scratch, and everything has been perfect so far. I'm booted into the system, everything works - except networking. I use a NetGear WG121 USB card, and it's being stubborn!
I know the problem is not hardware; I'm running Ubuntu now with the same card and the same system - could it be the version of ndiswrapper I'm using, or LFS itself?
Here's what I've done:
- Installed the latest ndiswrapper from source, version 1.25, I believe.
- Loaded my .inf driver.
- Checking ndiswrapper -l
, here's what I get:
netwg121 driver installed
hardware present. I looked in lsusb
Bus 1 Device 3: ID 0846:4210 NetGear, Inc. WG121 WiFi (v2)
it is being detected somehow. I took the device id (0845:4210) and put it into ndiswrapper -a. Now, ndiswrapper -l claims the hardware is
netwg121 driver intalled, hardware (0845:4210) present
Okay, so all is fine and dandy. I do the modprobe ndiswrapper
, and get:
But no lights light on the card, as expected
ndiswrapper version 1.25 loaded (preemt=yes;smp=yes)
usbcore: registered new driver ndiswrapper
further worries me:
lo no wireless extensions
Yuck. What could be the problem?
Oh, and one more thing that you might find useful -- when I start or shutdown the computer, I get:
Interface eth0 doesn't exist [WARN]
Could that have anything to do with it?
Thanks, I hope I gave enough information
