Do we need a new ISO that does include it? I would rather get this 2013 ndiswrapper issue resolved. If so, I'll add that in, but I'm not sure whether it's necessary, and I wanted to keep this guide as short as possible (it's bloated enough already) so as to Vamp Jr. http://amazonfonts.com/unable-to/unable-to-find-the-ndiswrapper-interface.html

To determine for sure whether a conflicting driver is the problem, you need to look at the output of lshw -C Network; see check #3 below for details.) 'invalid driver!' message Try our mobile theme. thanks, BabaG Last edited by babag; 06-14-2011 at 04:53 PM.
If it is a BCM4318 or any Broadcom chipset, you can try the ndiswrapper drivers in Synaptic, bcmwl5 is one and bcmwl5a is the other, one of them should work, just second: i see a message: windows driver can´t initializate device sharing IRQ is a problem ?? ...

Wireless & Network Tools For a Wireless only network my favorite is KWiFiManager which shows a signal strength applet in the taskbar.
Have you run into that problem or can you think of an example? In control center, I get the error "unable to find the ndiswrapper interface". The time now is 09:29 PM. No hardware change.
I have done some extensive research here on the forums, but nothing helped...I start by trying to add my wireless connection, So, I select my Windows wireless driver (mrv8335), which returns: http://mandrivausers.org/index.php?/topic/30319-little-problem-with-ndiswrapper/ If this happens, you can force ndiswrapper to try to use a certain driver for a given device with the command sudo ndiswrapper -a device-id driver, e.g.: Code: sudo ndiswrapper -a The most reliable way to locate the appropriate Windows drivers for your wireless device is to search the ndiswrapper site for your wireless card's device ID and chipset model. Switch off network completely Code: service network stop 2.
Blacklist Then, after setting up ndiswrapper you need to add "blacklist bcm43xx" or whatever the default driver was that wasn't working to etc/modprobe.d/blacklist to prevent this module being loaded every time Check This Out Again, if your error message is not listed above, remember: Google (and, failing that, the Ubuntu forums) is your friend. 6. Unmount (eject) the memory stick properly. I had never heard of that causing problems, so it's definitely good to know.
For me, it makes my wireless unusable in PCLinuxOS, for others it doesn't. AR2413 802.11bg NIC [168c:001a] (rev 01) Actually the relevant info I think is the "AR2413" and not the PCI ID "168c:001a", because the AR2413 is the chipset of the card. tell me something i don't know, something i can use as i struggle to reason with the world around me .. Source Please uninstall the current driver and install the .inf from that link, and see if it makes a difference.
You cannot use a wired and wireless connection at the same time. The time now is 08:29 PM. You can run the command: Code: ndiswrapper -l (that's a lowercase L, not a 1) to find out whether it recognizes your card properly (make sure your wireless card is plugged
Thereafter, the system will not load ath_pci until you remove it from the blacklist, and ndiswrapper should be free to claim the wireless card. If so, I'll add that in, but I'm not sure whether it's necessary, and I wanted to keep this guide as short as possible (it's bloated enough already) so as to Thanks. Ultimately, ndiswrapper cares only about the wireless chipset used, because that determines which Windows driver should be used with ndiswrapper.
I realised my wired ethernet stopped working, so I installed a windows driver for my wired ethernet card, under ndiswrapper. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak......... Why doesn't the module exist if I can use ndiswrapper on the command line? have a peek here Just as an example, "ndiswrapper -l" and "lsmod" may both show that the "prism54pci" module is being used for a particular PCI wireless card, and yet blacklisting "prism54pci" does no good

Sometimes it's the case that a certain release of the Windows driver doesn't agree with ndiswrapper, even though it should. i use the console to install the drivers ( ndiswrapper -i ) and then: when i type ndiswrapper -l says ... This article is a tribute to the helpful nature of the PCLinuxOS Community. Wherever drivers are mentioned, I am referring to Windows XP drivers.

As seen above, prism54pci is just an alias for p54pci. Then i do ndiswrapper -m && depmod -a && modprobe ndiswrapper The problem comes in the modprobe phase.

If you've run through all of the checks above but lshw -C Network still reports your wireless card as unclaimed, the most likely cause is that the ndiswrapper module is not PCLinuxOS List: http://pclinuxoshwdb.com/index.php?option=com_jreviews& task=listcategory§ion=4&cat=20&dir=1&Itemid=63 The most complete wireless hardware list I have seen so far is: http://linux-wless.passys.nl/ I can't speak for it's accuracy, I looked up my card and the results If ndiswrapper -l reports "device present" but you still can't get your wireless card to work, this is the likely culprit--ndiswrapper will still report "device present" even if the Windows drivers If you're still at a total loss, start a new thread in the Networking and Wireless subforum of this site, or post below.
You're almost finished. Thanks again for the support, and let me know if you ever think of anything else! Then log off and exit windows, hibernating out of your windows session could make your windows partition inaccessible to PCLinuxOS until you go back in and exit normally.
