ndiswrapper not working after reboot?
Well a week ago after restarting, I found that my ndiswrapper(wlan0) listing in my 'Create New Connection = > Wireless' wizard was gone and therefore the WiFi card would not work. (Broadcom bcm4318).
Now after posting here and not recieving a response for 2 weeks, I re-installed.
This time I went through all the instructions to install ndiswrapper (I had to add a symlink so it would find the devel) and I installed the 'patch' to upgrade the 4k cache.
ndiswrapper -l shows that the driver is installed and hardware present.
Before I try to activate the card in the Network settings wizard, I run:
depmod -a (nothing)
modprobe ndiswrapper (ok)
I added an alias in modprobe.conf and blacklisted bcm43xx
And I create the connection,but when I try to activate it, it says that it cannot.
Running iwconfig shows that there is no wlan0.
And now, after restarting, I find that ONCE AGAIN, the reference to ndiswrapper(wlan0) is gone AGAIN in the Network box so the WiFi wont work. (Not like it did in the first place).
Im getting desperate on this, I am willing to make a donation in a very-helpful person's name to the Fedora group.
EDIT: And I did update the kernal before installing ndiswrapper
EDIT *2: I just restarted and I see that ndiswrapper command isnt even found in the system, so I guess it is that ndiswrapper is disappearing after a restart.
