Belkin RTL8185L chipset PCI wifi Install


I have a belkin wifi card with a rtl8185 chipset. I have tried to use ndiswrapper with BCM drivers and windoze native drivers....no luck. I have linux-restricted-modules installed but still no wifi. I have succesfully installed other wifi cards (d-link atheros and belkin with broadcom chipset) using linux-restricted-modules and ndiswrapper respectively. I've have this thread posted in Ubuntu Forums; earlier attempts received no response. I have posted another thread in Ubuntu Forums, about two hrs old at the time of this post. If anyone can help please do so.

lspci gives me this:

Code:
01:08.0 Ethernet controller: Belkin Unknown device 700f (rev 20
I did search and found the driver for this card on sourceforge (rtl818x-1.0.1-b.tar.gz) After extracting the contents and running make, I get the following:

Code:

I'm not sure what all of this means, if anyone could point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

Is that the newest version of the Belkin F5D7000? I know if just bought a new card for my sister in the law to put in this system I just built for her. I noticed the IC on the card was the RTL8185 or 8180. Either way, it's all part of the RTL818x family. The drivers they have for the card can be a bit tricky.

First off, what kernel image are you using as far as CPU architecture? Is the the x86 Ubuntu image, or the x64 (amd64) image? That depends on what .inf file you need to use.

They claim they don't support 64 bit, but the driver is right there on the disk! They just hid it in a seperate folder.

I didn't try ndiswrapper, but DriverLoader (http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader) and entered in the 64 bit .inf and the .sys file associated w/ it, and it worked like a charm.

It should work the same in ndiswrapper though - "ndiswrapper -i blkwldcard.inf" or something like that. I don't have the disk in front of me, so I don't remember the exact file names, but it's along those lines.

I have an RTL8185L and I just wrapped this inf file, and it worked. Though I don't know about the difference, I'm using an RTL8185L which I think is being used in my zebra100 card. Hope that helps.

and when you try to insert module:
Code:
insmod r8180.ko
insmod: error inserting 'r8180.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module

dmesg -c
r8180: disagrees about version of symbol ieee80211_wake_queue
r8180: Unknown symbol ieee80211_wake_queue
r8180: disagrees about version of symbol ieee80211_stop_queue
r8180: Unknown symbol ieee80211_stop_queue
just make symbols from ieee80211 available when compiling rtl818x-newstack.

Code:
rm rtl818x-newstack/Module.symvers
ln -s ../ieee80211/Module.symvers rtl818x-newstack/Module.symvers
