Angry not able to configure wg111v3 in Debain Lenny :(

Hey buddies,

I have recently installed Debain Lenny 5.0.4 in my desktop and the installation was smooth and successful. After that to configure the netgear WG111V3 I followed the following steps.

1.Installed ndiswrapper
2.Installed wg111v3.tar

Now the command "ndiswrapper -l" yields me the following output

wg111v3 : driver installed
device (0846:4260) present

the blue light in my wifi dongle is also ON.

AFter doing the above Steps in Control Cente > Netwrok Settings I am able to get the wlan0n interface.

In the network settings tool I clicked on the wireless connection > properties and given the following configuration.

1.Disabled the enable roaming mode check box
2.Network Name : Selected my network name(ESSID) from the drop down
3. Password Type: Selected the WPA Personal option (as i have configured for WPA under security in my wifi router).
4.Configuration : Automatic Configuration(DHCP)

Afer doing all the steps I just clicked on the close button and a message appeared saying configuring the network settings.

I was hoping that internet should be available for me now, but bad luck! nothing worked out. I checked with the scan networks option in KWiFiManager and it easily identifies my wifi netwrok.

I really dont know why I am not able to connect to my WIFI when the wifi interface can able to read my WIFI network!

I am newbie for linux and following are the configuration that my system is running.

Debian Lenny 5.0.4
Kernel 2.6.26
WiFi Dongle : Netgear WG111v3

It has been a month since I used wifi in mydesktop, so please help me with this and many thanks in advance.

Hey folks,

Similar problem here. I have ndiswrapper set up and the driver installed, but the driver I've got doesn't seem to work. checking the system log, I found :

kernel is 64-bit, but Windows driver is not 64-bit;bad magic: 010B
Tried the Vista drivers too, but that was even less productive; all I get are a slew of "unknown symbol" messages.

Is there another driver for Lenny 2.6.26-2-amd64? Or another strategy I could use?

ndiswrapper uses the driver for XP. Since Netgear never released a driver for XP64, it's simply not going to work with a 64 bit kernel.
