    modprobe error, need help


    Hi everyone. I'm trying to get my Netgear WG111v2 USB adapter working but I'm having trouble. The native r8187 driver recongnizes my adapter but doesn't detect any networks. When I blacklist it and use ndiswrapper to load the windows driver, it says, "couldn't load driver net111v2," where net111v2 is the name of the windows driver. Any ideas? I'm running Ubuntu 6.10 and am using the latest version of ndiswrapper.

    Ok, did you use the full path name to the windows driver when you installed it to ndiswrapper? It has to be the full path, and include the.inf at the end of the file name.

    What is the output of ndiswrapper -l ?
