    ndiswrapper oddities


    Hey, I just switched from slackware to ubuntu because my sound card refused to work with slack. So far the sound is working on ubuntu, but ndiswrapper is not.

    I installed the old and new ndiswrapper, neither worked, (although both installed at same time). The ndiswrapper-1.9 couldn't find the module. and when i entered ndiswrapper -l it came up with this

    net8185: driver installed

    nothing else!! I thought there was supposed to be something about the hardware being there.
    Also, when i checked ndiswrapper -v i got
    utils Error: wrong version etc.

    I just reinstalled ubuntu, and I'm waiting to see what I can do about this.

    thanks in advance

    Hiya vfronda ,
    When you saw this msg "net8185: driver installed" it should been ready to go. You might have to configure it though(WEP, SSID, Channel). Do you remember how you got it to do that?

    When i set this up in slackware, all i did was install ndiswrapper and then use

    ndiswrapper -i drivername.inf

    than ndiswrapper -m

    than it magically worked on the next boot up

    it also showed when i put in ndiswrapper -l: (in slackware)
    net8185 : driver installed, hardware present

    where can i go to configure this.

    Well, you could use the command line, of course and I'm sure Slackware has a GUI network tool but I wouldn't know the name of it.
