    Wireless card not working


    Hey im new to linux so pls be patient. I have a d-link wua2340 usb adapter and iv tried using ndiswrapper and its windows driver. Iv successfully installed the driver (at least i think i did) as it says driver installed and device ready when i run the command ndiswrapper -l. So after i modprobe ndiswrapper and then iwconfig i get eth0 and lo no wireless extensions. Can anyon suggest anything that would resolve my dillema. Thanks

    sometimes "ifconfig" can help. e.g.

    "ifconfig"

    shows a list of network interfaces, say wlan0 is one of them: then try

    "ifconfig wlan0 up"

    when i run ifconfig i only see eth0 and lo. I have a feeling i should be seeing wlan0 because everyone who has this thing working does so. I tried using ifconfig eth0 up but does nothing.

    From the directory you installed the driver w/ ndiswrapper:

    depmod -a
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    su
    ifconfig

    Let us know how it goes.

    You should be seeing wlan0 (or something equivalent)

    What happens if you type in:

    ifconfig wlan0 up

    Also post the output of

    lsmod -l

    and

    ifconfig -a

    to this thread

    Same problem with other adapter

    Hi, crazydude!
    Dou you resolve problem with your wifi adapter?

    I have a similar problem with other d-link usb wifi adapter - DWA-120 on debian 4.0r6 for i386.
    I saw in dmesg output same error mesage:
    ndiswrapper (import:242): unkown symbol: ntoskrnl.exe: 'KeNumberProcessors'
    ndiswrapper (load_sys_files :206): couldnt prepare driver 'neta5agu'
    ndiswrapper (load_wrap_driver : 10: Couldn't load driver nea5agu; check system log fo messages for 'loadndisdriver'
    There are two driver versions(1.10 and 1.20) for my adapter on dlink site(thre are 5 ones for your D-Link WUA-2340 RangeBooster G USB Adapter)
    I've installed an older driver in my case and now all works fine. Try other versions of drivers for your adapter!

    I hope this information helps you and others!
    Good luck!!!
