The installation instructions at the ndiswrapper wiki are really pretty good. Could you give us an idea of what you've tried and where it has gone wrong? It really is difficult to give a decent suggestion when all we have to go on is "it's not working at all".

since this is on the same theme.. HELP!!

ndiswrapper help

Apple Powerbook G3 Laptop
Fedora Core 4 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4 (-ppc)
Netgear WG511 v2 (made in China Marvell chipset)
Me=(newbie)

What I did:

installed Fedora Core 4 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4-ppc
downloaded ndiswrapper (tar.gz did not install just downloaded)
ran yum update
rebooted into kernel 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4
created:

ln -s /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1833_FC4/build/linux-2.6.15-1.1833_FC4-ppc /usr/src/linux-2.6.15-1.1833_FC4-ppc

installed ndiswrapper as per instructions
went to the ndiswrapper directory and did make distclean then make install

DO I HAVE TO RECOMPILE THE KERNEL????

here is where I believe the trouble begins. . .

On the ndsiwrapper install site, it says to create a symbolic lync to the source code. On Fedora, I have not clue where it is. I have kernel-devel install as well as the source, but I guess I'm not qite sure where it is or how to symlink it. Anyway, when I follow the instructions on the ndiswrapper website, I always get the same errors. A long list that ends like this:

modprobe config already contains alias directive
(i already did all these steps here, i just wanted to show you what i did before)

when i type dmesg...this is what i get:

as you can see no drivers are being loaded or nothing is happening...

adsl-71-152-35-150:/home/carmini/DRIVER# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

eth1 no wireless extensions.

sit0 no wireless extensions.

Maybe i am doing something wrong...
i remember when i installed ndiswrapper to make my old laptop work i had to install some "linux-headers" but i don't remember any of that
I have searchedonline and nobody seems to be doing these...so I don't know what to do??
help:?????

I hate to say this stancliff, but ndiswrapper will not work for you. It is for Windows drivers only and simply doesn't work on Apple gear. For you, the only option is to find a card with a chipset that has native linux support.

@Carspidey

First off, lets move away from the rc versions of ndiswrapper. They tend to be more of a pain than they are worth.

Quote:
ndiswrapper version 1.6rc1 loaded (preempt=yes,smp=no)
ndiswrapper (import:251): unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe:strrchr
ndiswrapper (import:251): unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe:MmFreeContiguousMemorySpecifyCache
ndiswrapper (import:251): unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe:MmAllocateContiguousMemorySpecifyCache

ndiswrapper (load_driver:344): loadndiswrapper failed (65280); check system logfor messages from 'loadndisdriver'
All of these unknown symbol errors suggest that the original compile of ndiswrapper did NOT go well. Here is what I would suggest. First, there are good uninstall directions on the ndiswrapper wiki. Go through and remove everything from /lib/modules and download a copy of the newest stable source (not an rc version). Then go through and install and post any errors you get.

Dell inspiron 2200 wlan 1370 cant connect

I am having some serious issue with this not working. I have been trying to get it to connect all day, updated to core 7 from 6 (6 actually detected it,7 did not) rebuilt a driver with ndiswrapper, I see it in nettools, try to connect and nada. Under hardware, none of the settings are setup, irq etc... how can I figure out these settings?

here is a copy of my dmesg:

ok, Im pretty well tired of this. A laptop that wont connect wirelessly is pretty useless. I even went back and reinstalled fedora6, as it saw the wireless interface on bootup, where 7 did not. I doesnt even look like it is getting any signal from the card, it wont detect my ssid or anything. Serves me right I guess for buying a dell pos.

FC7 uses an experimental Broadcom driver that is probably conflicting with NDISwrapper.

2Gnu is completely right. Fedora slipped a mickey to all Broadcom users with FC7 and the b43 driver. If you do some searching here there are several threads that describe how to blacklist the new driver (there are more than one module that needs to be blacklisted) and get ndiswrapper back to functioning. If you decide to try using b43, you need to install firmware, and it is NOT the same firmware as bcm43xx uses.

Not the bcm43xx firmware huh. Dang. I have tried several different tutorials, and so far none have worked. I appear to have the 4318 chipset, and after I looked at linuxwireless, said had severe power transmissions issues, it said use the b43 driver. Not real helpful there I guess. I will look around and try a few more things and hopefully get it going.
