    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Okay, that's hopeful, but I must ask, what does one mean when he says "I copied all the files to... the directory and then ran ndiswrapper on that." Just what and how did you run ndiswrapper on to install the drivers?

    Lol; nevermind, got it. Just the normal
    ndiswrapper -i WUSB11v4.inf
    , just making sure you also extracted all the other files into the same directory. Thanx GUstag!

    I've created a howto based on the solution presented in this thread, located here.

    Sorry I wasn't more specific SigmaX, but I see you figure it out anyway .

    I also ran into some issue with wep encryption that were a little wierd.

    When using iwconfig you have to enter the encryption xxxx-xxxx-xx with the dashes otherwise it doesn't work. Also no idea why or how this worked but once I did that then set the essid I had to turn the key on (iwconfig wlan0 key on). If anyone has any more questions I might be able to help.

    I get major stability issues on my systems when the WUSB11v4 is plugged into them. On my hp pavilion xt118 (Which tend to be instable anyway) I can barely get logged into Gnome before the system either hangs or spontaneously and instantly reboots. My AthlonXP based desktop has hung two or three times in the 24 hours I had it plugged in, each time only when user activity was taking place.

    Perhaps it's just a unique issue for me, and I haven't tried hard to troubleshoot, but it would seem from my experience that WUSB11v4 with ndiswrapper is notably unstable, though livable.
