Backtrack and WPC54GS
Im trying to get my Linksys WPC54gs(v2) running under backtrack linux (based of slackware) but im having problems, heres what ive done so far:
Started up with wireless card in
Slax utils# ndiswrapper - i lsbcmnds.inf
Slax utils# ndiswrapper -l
lsbcmnds driver present
Slax utils# Modprobe ndiswrapper
Fatal: Module Ndiswrapper not found.
Slax utils# ls
lsbcmnds.cat* makefile bcmwl5.sys* loadndisdriver.c lsbcmnds.inf ndiswrapper* ndiswrapper-buginfo*
Slax utils# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions
sit0 no wireless extensions
When i try to modprobe ndiswrapper it says ndiswrapper isnt there but it is as you can see. Im new to linux, but know a little so help is much appreciated.
that directory shows a makefile.... did you compile the driver first before trying to load it into ndiswrapper?
What version of backtrack are you using?
is this linksys using a ralink chipset?
as far as I remember dlink used another chipset but recently moved to ralink chipset... (note that under backtrack, only the ralink equiped linksys will enable injection)
Post your lsmod output. I suspect that you haven't compiled and installed the kernel module and userspace utilities.
If not, try the following
Then check your lsmod output again.
tar xvfz ndis.tar.gz
Sometimes running slocate programName can tell you where a program installed various files. (Assuming that you run slocate -u first)
Post back here your steps, and we can hopefully narrow down what you did or didn't do.
The above link has an ndis HOWTO. See if that helps you.
