    newbie trying to setup wireless with TEW-424UB


    Hello all,

    I am trying to set up wireless on an older IBM PC with FreeSpire as the operating system. I have played with FreeSpire a bit and am looking to make the jump off of Vista. I am quite comfortable that this can replace both of my MS boxes but before I take the final jump I need to get the wireless working on this PC ( and learn how it is done ) for my nephew.

    I have tried to follow other posts on using ndiswrapper with either of my MS driver ( sis163u or rtl8187b ) but the driver never installs properly - I get this : : rtl8187b : invalid driver!

    The output from the commands listed are ;

    erikm@EriksPC:~$ iwlist scan
    lo Interface doesn't support scanning.

    eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

    erikm@EriksPC:~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    It looks like the sis163u driver is the one you want to use. NDISwrapper uses the .inf and .sys files from the driver. If the driver is a .exe or .cab file, they must be extracted first.

    For a list of the NDISwrapper commands, use the --help option:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper --help
    Remember, you must have root privileges to install kernel modules like NDISwrapper.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

    thanx, I have been trying to install the drivers and I have used :

    sudo ndiswrapper -i /home/erikm/windriv/sis163u.inf

    and this is what happens ;

    erikm@EriksPC:~$ sudo ndiswrapper -i /home/erikm/windriv/sis163u.inf
    installing sis163u ...
    couldn't open /home/erikm/windriv/sis163u.inf: No such file or directory at /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper-1.9 line 174.
    erikm@EriksPC:~$ sudo ndiswrapper -i /home/erikm/windriv/sis163u.inf
    driver sis163u is already installed


    but it always comes back looking like this when I do a :

    sudo ndiswrapper -l

    sis163u : invalid driver!

    Can you please let me know what I am doing wrong. I do think I have all of the commands from other posts but don't seem to be getting anywhere.

    Thanx Dave

    Try removing the driver with the -r option, and then re-install it.
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -r sis163u
    Try downloading the driver again, maybe something is wrong with the driver you have. Also try re-installing NDISwrapper, and get the newest version.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

    Thank you very much.

    I had downloaded the latest ndiswrapper and Freespire told me I already had the latest. The drivers I was using were from the original disk ( thought they were good ! ) . As you suggested I removed my bad one, downloaded new drivers, reinstalled them and now it recognizes the card. I will continue on and see if I can't get it working now.

    Thanks for your help - Dave Adamchuk
