    Ndiswrapper/Modprobe Help


    Hi there, I'm running a dual boot operating system of windows vista and Fedora Linux (2.6.27.12-78.2.8.fc9.i686) and was able to get my internal atheros pci card to work, but could not get my external pcmcia belkin notebook card which runs off a ralink driver to work. I tried using ndiswrapper, but I didn't install it properly, I unzipped it and then ran it from the command prompt which I think was the cause of my trouble now. I got it to install the windows driver (rt2860 : driver installed; device 1814:0781 present) and then did /sbin/depmod, ndiswrapper -m as well as /sbin/modprobe which after I checked /sbin/ifconfig -a it added pan0 to my network list. However my card would still not function (it listed some errors during the installation), so since then I've installed ndiswrapper using make and make install which installed it fine with zero errors and all. I removed old driver and everything and tried redoing it, I got it to read the card and the driver as present, did the depmod, ndiswrapper -mi, ndiswrapper -ma just fine, however when I try the command ndiswrapper -m it gives me the error "module configuration already contains alias directive." Interestingly enough I've never figured out how to remove "pan0" from my network list, so I think this is the cause of my problems. I tried restarting the system to see if it would load the module into the kernel, but when I run /sbin/iwconfig it lists "pan0" as having "no wireless extensions", so this is pretty much where I'm at, any help would be much appreciated.

    Do you really need to use NDISwrapper?

    If you want help, you must provide more detailed information. Read this guide.

    You appear to have two wireless cards, even though you only list one.

    There is the ath5k driver module loading, and it is for Atheros cards not Ralink. There also are many errors for the wlan1 card. So, there must be a wlan0.

    Please give the FULL output of these commands:
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    Code:
    lsusb
    Also, post the output of this command.
    Code:
    iwconfig
    There is a Linux driver available for the Ralink RT2860 wireless. You can download and compile it from the Ralink site:
    Ralink Technology: Linux

    Or you can install it using the rpmfusion repository. I don't see a version for your kernel, so you may need to upgrade to a matching kernel version, also using rpmfusion.
    kmod-rt2860-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686
    RPMFusion configuration
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

    I do have two wireless pci cards, one utilizes the N draft standard and the other uses 54 B and G standard, however I can only have one plugged in at a time so thats why it showing the wlan1 as online and not the wlan0. I used your link to download the linux Ralink RT2860 driver and just unzipped it, did make and make install and tried restarting my computer to get it to read, but no luck. Heres more of the output commands you asked for.

    Is the driver loading? Check for it in the output of lsmod. I think that it is called rt2860sta. If it isn't there, you can try to manually load it. Use su to gain root privileges first.
    Code:
    /sbin/modprobe rt2860sta

    O.K. finally got the card reading. Didn't see the driver with /sbin/lsmod code so I tried /sbin/modprobe rt2860sta and it went through just fine. Checked the /sbin/iwconfig and I now have ra0 as a network device. Thanks for the installation help.

    There is the possibility that it won't load the module again after a reboot. You can try running this command, and see if it fixes it. Actually, you should run it anyway.
    Code:
    /sbin/depmod -A
