Newbie seeks in setting up D-Link wireless usb wua 1340 with ndiswrapper

wireless set-up ndiswrapper D-Link wua1340


Wireless set-up help requested – Ndiswrapper

I am a Newbee have been struggling last few weeks to set up my wi-fi on my desktop Damn Small Linux

I have been assisted on the DSL forum to a point and have read, tried many tutorials, HOWTOs but now I am truly stuck

In summary, I located the windows drivers for the D-Link Wua 1340 and ran the ndiswrapper with it – received message “driver installed, hardware present” :-)

ndiswrapper –m yielded “modeprobe config already contains alias directive”

But modprobe ndiswrapper yielded

ndiswrapper (import: 241): unknown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe : ‘ZwWriteFile’
ndiswrapper (load_sys_files: 213) : couldn’t prepare driver ‘dr71wu’
ndiswrapper (load_wrap_driver: 132) : couldn’t load driver ‘dr71wu’

This may well be due to my earlier attempts to install

Beyond this I am unable to proceed :-(

Can anyone throw some light on how I should proceed, short of reinstalling DSL

I think it uses ralinks rt73 linux driver. To compile in dsl with 2.4.31 need kernel source from testing, gnu utilites and gcc+libs from system installed from mydsl.

A happy penguinista here :-)

After weeks of struggling to set up my WUA 1340 D-Link on DSL Linux, (Ndiswrapper, wua_supplicant, tarballs and gunzips), today I downloaded Puppy and connected to the internet with absolutely no hastles - straight out of the box. Indeed this is coming from my Puppy L

With my struggle to set up my wi-fi I gathered a lot of information from LQ which will no doubt come in helpful in the future when I experiment with other distros.

Thanks to all of you in the Linux community for selflessly helping others to come on board and share the freedom of being set loose from the bondage of Bill G and co. I pledge to follow your example and do likewise when I am able to walk and run (I am still crawling as a Newbie)




dlink, ndiswrapper
