Problem with ndiswrapper and DWL-520+
I have a DWL-520+ wifi nic (H/W Ver.: A3 F/W Ver.: 2.03).
I'm trying to make it work under Debian with kernel 188.8.131.52.
I managed to compile ndiswrapper just fine (I'm using ndiswrapper 1.16).
The ndiswrapper suggested to use the driver that came with the CD. I tried doing that and it just won't work.
Installed drivers: gplus invalid driver!
thanks in advance,

I did try to install the G520+* a while ago, so some things may be similar: there are three driver files, I believe, on the CD that comes with the card: gplus.bin plus.inf and gplus.sys (this is from memory, so correct me if I'm wrong). I believe that the file you need is the .inf, but that you need to have the others in the same directory to get ndiswrapper to see it as a valid driver. (and then, if gplus.inf doesn't work, at least they're conveniently placed for you to be able to try each file...).

Giles is correct - complete nightmare so i would double check which chipset you have http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...p/Installation - Install Windows driver section and compare with the pciid on list http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...dex.php/List#D I have the D-Link AirPlus G+ DWL-G520+ with acx111 chipset and it works fine with ndsiwrapper.Elive,kanotix-mini,pclinuxos super gamer,xp, sidux
