Problem installing Netgear xw311 v2 with ndiswrapper


Hello people!

I am installing a netgear card (wg311 v2 in my Desktop machine, Pentium II 450 MHz and Slackware 10.1 with the default kernel, and it seems to be correctly detected (according to the lspci command result).

So, I installed the ndiswrapper, and I did the default procedure:

-"ndiswrapper -i <path_win_driver=wg311v2.inf> " and the result was ok, i think, because it says that wg311v2 is present, but doing a dmesg, it does not say nothing related with an internet interface....

-"ndiswrapper -l" and the driver seems also to be ok... "wg311v2 present"

-"ndiswrapper -m" to add the module to the "/etc/modules.conf" and its done... "alias wlan0 ndiswrapper"

and after this I did "modprobe ndiswrapper", and it seems to work... but I don't get an network interface at all... What I mean is... that when I try to see, or to edit the wlan0 interface with ifconfig/iwconfig, I always have the same kind of errors... "wlan0 no such device".

I don't know what more I can do... because I tried to see if I need to add some special file under "/ert/rc.d" related with this interface... but this should be done automatically from the result of ifconfig/iwconfig also...

I think I gave the most important information about the problem, but if someone need more details, please just tell me...

thank you

The message you get from ndiswrapper -l does it say both the driver and the hardware are present?

>>The message you get from ndiswrapper -l does it say both the driver and the hardware are present?

no... it just says this:

"
Installed ndis drivers:
wg311v2 present
windows present
"

When I was installing this, I saw in some online tutorials that I should have some message like this :
"
Installed ndis drivers
wg311v2 driver present, hardware present
"

So maybe the problem has started here... any idea?!

I will try to use another windows driver... and then another version of the ndiswrapper.... But I believe that this is not the problem...

So please if you can send me some information, that you think could solve this problem... It will be very good.

Thank you

Edu

Which version are you using. It looks like you're using an old version of ndiswrapper cause I got that message too when I used ndiswrapper0.8. If that's the case try a newer version.

darkleaf...

I am really happy... because the problem was really the ndiswrapper (I instaled the version 0.12)!

Now everything is working perfectly... I just have to configure some stuff... but now it's OK!!

Thank you very much... And continue helping people.. this was my first time here in Linux Questions... And it really worked, quickly and well! So I will continue reading this and also helping other people!

See you around, and thanks one more time!
