    Installing Wireless Client (WUSB11v4)


    Hello,

    I'm trying to install the Linksys WUSB11v4 Wireless Client with Ndiswrapper.

    When I try to load the driver it says:

    Installing WUSB11v4
    Parse error in inf. Unable to find section @mdusb.out

    What sould I do?

    I'm using the WikiDocs as a tutorial (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WifiDocs/Dri...iswrapperHowto)

    and when I enter the command lspci -n i can't see my client listed!

    Any help would be apreciated!

    Sorry my english.

    If you post the output of lspci and lspci -n we ought to be able help you out. Also, can we get you to post the actual commands you are using along with the results.

    oops, I missed the obvious here. The network device is USB, so it wont appear in lspci.

    It looks like the windows driver is a fault. Can you post a link to where you got the driver so we can take a look at it. If you got the driver from the disk that (should have) came with the device, can we get you to try downloading a different one from the Linksys website.

    Let us know how you get on,

    Card: Linksys #[WUSB11v4], 802.11b, USB 1.1

    * usbid: 13B1:000B
    * Chipset: M4301A, made by Ali
    * Driver: Linksys Windows XP driver from ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/WUSB11v4_08272004.exe (driver is not available through http://www.linksys.com/download/default.asp). Install with WUSB11v4.inf
    * Other: Works with snapshot of 2005-08-21.

    This is the info I've got from the Ndiswrapper List (http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...dex.php/List#L)

    Thanks!

    OK, I took a peek at that driver. Can I get you to remove the wusb11v4 driver and try the netusb driver instead.

    Code:
    ndiswrapper -e wusb11v4
    ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf
    ndiswrapper -l
    And if that looks like it worked can I get you to go through the modprobe, dmesg, iwconfig from the earlier post.

    Let us know how you get on,

    Chris...

    Code:
    root@Desktop:/home/tiago/Desktop/Linksys Driver/WUSB11v4_08272004/Drivers# ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf
    Installing netusb
    root@Desktop:/home/tiago/Desktop/Linksys Driver/WUSB11v4_08272004/Drivers# ndiswrapper -l
    Installed ndis drivers:
    netusb  driver present
    root@Desktop:/home/tiago/Desktop/Linksys Driver/WUSB11v4_08272004/Drivers#
    And now, what should I do?

    It appears the version of ndiswrapper currently supplied with Ubuntu is too old to read some of the entries in the INF file. The driver you have installed just now won't work because it can't see the hardware.

    If you go to the ndiswrapper website you can download the latest release. Follow the instructions to compile it and use it to install the WUSB11v4.inf driver.

    If you run into trouble then post a message here and we can help you out. Let us know how it goes.

    I indentified my Wireless client on the LSUSB list with the ID 13b1:000b! But now, I removed the old ndiswrapper and i can't install the new version. See the code above:

    Code:
    tiago@Desktop:~/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.16$ lsusb
    Bus 005 Device 006: ID 0bda:0103 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
    Bus 005 Device 004: ID 2304:0208 Pinnacle Systems, Inc. [hex]
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 003 Device 003: ID 050d:0084 Belkin Components
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0603:00f2 Novatek Microelectronics Corp.
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 13b1:000b
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    tiago@Desktop:~/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.16$ make distclean
    bash: make: command not found
    What can I do?

    Thank you!

    You need to install make and gcc.

    Code:
    apt-get install make
    apt-get install gcc-3.4
    Then try the make command again. There may be other dependancies, but it will tell you what is missing.

    Let us know how you get on,
