I think this question has been asked about ten thousand times, but I could never find a half-descent answer to it.
The question is: IS THERE ANY WAY TO GET DWL-G510 D-Link WIRELESS ETHERNET ADAPTER TO WORK? :?: (sorry for being so loud, but I am veeeery frustrated by my inability to make it work by myself :D )
Does anyone have D-Link g510 wireless adapter running on mandrake?
If so, could you please tell me how did you do it!
I have been trying to make the bloody thing work for two month now. Have to load in Win every time I need e-net. Tried DriverLoader as well as ndiswrapper 7, 8 and 9 with no luck at all. None of them sees my hardware. The Harddrake2 (i'm on Mandrake 10.1) identifies the card as Marvell W9500 < (not sure, have to reboot to verify :wink: ) but has no module for it. So, if not too much trouble, would you please help?
Howdy it-s, I already PMed you, but thought of something else:
To remove ndiswrapper COMPLETELY, then you can follow the instructions here, or you can use these instructions:
1. open a console. update the search database as root (updatedb). Then, use the
(type exactly that in a run box or console as root) to find ANY file with ndiswrapper in it. You can probably remove anything bearing the name, I don't see how that would screw up your system. If you installed ndiswrapper from an rpm, you still need to go through this process. Don't use the KDE search tool because it doesn't seem to work with mandrake 10.
2. look in folders related to the kernel or the kernel-source, such as /etc/modules/(your kernel) and the alias folder for the kernel-source. I can't give you the exact location because I'm not at my linux computer. It shouldn't be that hard to find, regardless.
Thank you asdfjkl; I'll most definitely try that. ...as soon as I get home that is :) ...
If I run into trouble I'll post it here
And jeremy1701 I have been through that post three times already, but without much luck, however thank you a lot for consideration.
Ok, I have done all that you have suggested - deleted all that corresponded with ndiswrapper ( all the dirs and files) reinstalled a fresh ndiswrapper 9 and loaded WinMe drivers. Modprobe gives no result. as before I get this after issuing dmesg command:
ndiswrapper version 0.9 loaded
ndiswrapper: driver mrv8k51.sys added
ndiswrapper (NdisFreeSpinLock:855): incorrect lock c3a34772
ndiswrapper (NdisFreeSpinLock:855): incorrect lock c3a3406f
ndiswrapper (NdisFreeSpinLock:855): incorrect lock c3a34f62
ndiswrapper (ndis_init_one:1299): Windows driver couldn't initialize the device
mrv8k51.sys: probe of 0000:00:09.0 failed with error -22
Any ideas as to what could be the couse of this errors?
Once again - thank you for your help
