WG111v2 Netgear wireless usb network adapter and ndiswrapper issues on Arch w/ xfce4


I'm really new at this (just installed Arch 3 days ago), so if something I say sounds stupid, please try to understand.

Okay so I spent the whole day trying to get my wireless working. Couldn't.

So far I was able to install ndiswrapper, and the driver needed.

[root@SuperSai ~]# ndiswrapper -l
net111v2 : driver installed
device (0846:6A00) present
[root@SuperSai ~]# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSIDff/any
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate:54 Mb/s Tx-Power:20 dBm Sensitivity=0/3
RTS thrff Fragment thrff
Encryption key:5303-4524-68 Security mode:restricted
Power Managementff
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0


So I went to my RC config file and try to fiddle with it a little bit, commenting the eth0 interface and adding wlan0 interface.

MODULES=(ndiswrapper e100 eepro100 mii)
USELVM="no"
HOSTNAME="SuperSai"
lo="lo 127.0.0.1"
eth0="dhcp"
wlan0="dhcp"
WLAN_INTERAFCES=(wlan0)
INTERFACES=(lo !eth0 wlan0)
gateway="default gw 192.168.0.1"

So ...

[root@SuperSai ~]# /etc/rc.d/network restart

and fail. No lights are blinking on the adapter, but its hot. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. What do you think could be the problem? Help ASAP because I'm gonna loose my wired connection very soon and then I'll be in big trouble. X_X thanks

Can't help you with the config file entries, as I don't know Arch, but some of those don't look like proper syntax to me. Google for some examples to confirm.

As for making the adapter work, you're almost there.

iwconfig wlan0 essid your_ssid (make sure the SSID is being broadcast)
Then, dhcpcd wlan0

That should get you going.
