and if the line reads:
bcmwl5 present,fuzzy
try anyway as this is what mine says and it works fine.

Markfl

ps. swapping it for a prism54 mini-pci card soon anyway. Native support for chipset including monitor mode, hostap, repeater and secondary mode (whatever the hell that is)

Ok I'm now have the right reply messages to
#ndiswrapper -l
Installed ndis drivers:
bcmwl5 present Check I got that!

next dmesg has this

ndiswrapper version 0.8 loaded
ndiswrapper adding bcmwl5.sys
wlan0: ndiswrapper ethernet device 00:90:4b:44:5b:cb using driver bcmwl5.sys

Check I got that!

now when i try to bring up my wlan0 it fails

iwconfig wlan0 essid <my essid> everthing ok
ifconfig wlan0 up ifconfig then returns

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:3F:68:BF:81

What does 'iwconfig wlan0' produce? If it says ESSID:"" its not connected to an access point. I'd also try the CVS version, the Howto is on the top of page 2. In v0.8 I couldn't switch essids and was stuck using a default "".

I've maked the .config the way asked with the wireless extencions and i supused it is working because i have the /proc/net/wireless file. But there is no wlan0 device for my ASUS WL-100G.

When i execute iwconfig i get:
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

sit0 no wireless extensions.

ip6tnl0 no wireless extensions.

The ndiswrapper module is loaded and running
Module Size Used by
ndiswrapper 72292 0

But the dmesg output does not have any wlan0 mencion:
ndiswrapper version 0.8 loaded

the /etc/modules.d/ndiswrapper is like this:

alias wlan0 ndiswrapper

loadndisdriver 14e4 4320 /lib/windrivers/bcmwl5.inf /lib/windrivers/bcwml5.sys

ndiswrapper -i /usr/lib/hotplug/drivers/bcmwl5.inf

install ndiswrapper /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install ndiswrapper && { loadndisdriver /lib/windrivers/ ; }
I've using the asus main drivers from the latest driver on the oficial URL.

I've googled much but didn't find none with the same caracteristics than me. I'me using kernel 2.6.7-gentoo-r11 and ndiswrapper 0.8 (emerged)

(If there is any english error, sorry i'm kind of rusty)

now when i try to bring up my wlan0 it fails

iwconfig wlan0 essid <my essid>


OK Mike, let's walk though some things....

  1. What speed is your AP? NDIS doesn't allow you to change speeds once initiated.
  2. WEP/WPA ?
  3. After setting the essid, did you check to see if it took?

I found I needed to modify the .inf file to get mine (broadcom 54G) working correctly.

I finally got my MA521 working correctly. Here are some tips:

I am using ndiswrapper 0.8 from the sourceforge repository.
Kernel version 2.6.5-mm on a Dell Latitude D600.

Enable PCMCIA support and wireless networking support in the kernel.
If you have the kernel configured correctly, the Pwr led will be active after you boot, and there will be an entry in /proc/net/wireless.

After trying the Realtek drivers (as suggested in some forums), and then downloading the latest drivers from Netgear, I finally installed the older version of the Netgear driver from the installation CD that came with the card. Using the Realtek drivers, nothing worked. Using the newer Netgear drivers, I could get a Link LED, but never connect to the network (dhcpcd timed out). Using the drivers from the CD, I could get Link LED and connect with DHCP.

Commands to configure the card once the drivers are installed in ndiswrapper and the kernel configured are :

[list]
/sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper
/usr/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 channel 11
/usr/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 key 73xxxxxxxxxxxxxxfd6
/usr/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 essid "yournetid"
/sbin/dhcpcd wlan0
[/list]

Insert your channel, WEP key, and essid according to local settings.

When the commands are in a script, it does not always work. I think a small delay is needed between the iwconfig lines. Issuing them manually works every time.

I hope this is of help for others.

Hi,

I just wanted to say thank you again to scootersmk. I've had ndiswrapper working with my IPW2200 for a month now and have had absolutely NO problems. I mean it works beautifully. It starts quickly and reliably at boot time with several networks that I use and I've been using the wireless card CONSTANTLY (surfing on the couch, at work, at the bagel shop, at the school library).

I have an interesting question.

I've got ndiswrapper and an Intel Pro 2200 chipset [shoot me now].

EDIT: For clarity, I shall point out that my internal card is the same as the above poster's, the IPW2200. If you're looking for something humorous, go download the 0.1 version of the official driver and read the installation instructions.

EDIT 2: No, I don't have 4k stacks, before someone asks.

I've tried several different versions of ndiswrapper, from .7 through .9, and thought I should post. [Damn the ThinkPad R51.]

The device WORKS for me, technically...but with a few problems.

Initially, I had random lockups which I traced [via the oops it always output] to SMP in my kernel, which I promptly disabled [whoops ^_^].

Now, I just have random lockups after loading the module, lockups that SysRq doesn't reboot from. I've tried loading the module and staring at the messages output until it hung...nothing at all output.

Any advice would be helpful...I really dislike having to run CAT-5 across my room, not to mention having to take bets on how long wireless is stable when I leave my room.

Hello,

I just got my Dell 5150 with a truemoble 1350 in it and i got ndiswrapper to see it but i cant get the iwconfig to set a key to it. the is the error message i get.
Code:

> iwconfig wlan0 key "s:xxxxx"
   Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
   SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.

I also noticed that in the dmesg this.

Code:

ndiswrapper device wlan0 supports WPA with AES/CCMP and TKIP ciphers


does them mean that it doesn't support WEP?


can some one please help. i hate running an open wap.



Thanks.

PMT: Are you sure it's not just a problem with your network? Just after I posted yesterday, my access point quit on me. My router does 4 wired connections plus the wireless access point. The wired stuff still worked, I restarted the router and everything was fine. I still don't know what happened but it wasn't the computer...

I'm certain. I've tried this on multiple networks, and they all cause the same thing.

Oh, and when I say hang, I don't mean the wireless stalls. I mean it causes a kernel panic. =P

Last night, I was playing with it, using wireless to SSH into my server then use naim and nirc. Unfortunately, when it [amazingly] tried to display the error, it forced it all into the line ncurses allowed me to type in [>_<!] and I have yet to be able to reproduce the error.

And yes, once again, I'm certain it's not my network.

EDIT: And yes, I'm certain it's ndiswrapper causing this...I've had my laptop run stably for over two weeks straight without a single crash, and it hangs within 20 minutes of modprobing ndiswrapper.

EDIT 2: For clarity, when booting into [blech] XP Pro on this laptop, I have no problems receiving signal anywhere. Again, no, it's not my router.

To all those having problems with setting the SSID on the "Broadcom Corporation BCM94306 802.11g", here is how I was able to do it:

Originally I was using the e-machines drivers, but I downloaded the dell drivers (kinda makes sense, since my machine is a dell ;) ) and used the bcmwl5a.inf file (and the bcmwl5.sys file) with ndiswrapper. After doing this my wireless card automatically associated itself with my AP! I haven't tried the bcmwl5.inf file, so I'm not sure whether that works, but give this a try if you've been having problems and let me know if it fixed them.

Well, PMT, I have a very similar set-up working but I am using the gentoo kernel version 2.6.7-r8. Maybe try a gentoo patched kernel? That's all I can suggest since I have a very similar set up and that's the first difference that I notice. If you are interested I will send you my .config file via PM. I don't like when people post really long files.... Oh, and where did you get the driver, from the website? I copied my drivers over from my windows partition...

EDIT: Yeah, btw, I did initially try the linux driver at that site. Took me an hour to figure out that it's not even MEANT to work at all. :x They shouldn't be posting on the web in that case, or the warning should be more strongly worded and at the very top of the README.

EDIT2: Oh, I just went back to the site and apparantly, as of yesterday, the ipw2200 linux driver can actually transmit and receive.... Doesn't make me want to switch over thought....

Well, you can add my laptrot to the list of success stories :D

It's a Sony VAIO A115S. A Centrino 1.6 with Intel 2200BG wireless. I used the drivers from the link on the supported devices page; they work fine. In fact, they're the exact same as the ones that came with my laptop for windows.
One note however: in ndiswrapper 0.8 when I did a "modprobe ndiswrapper", all I saw in dmesg was "ndiswrapper v0.8 loaded", but the actual driver for the card wasn't loaded. However, ndiswrapper 0.9 works like a charm, and I have a working 54Mb connection :D

I haven't looked into WEP and such yet though.

So THANK YOU for this topic :)

I've got problems with my card now :( Did have it working (thanks to someone sshding in for me) on kernel 2.6.7 - but had to format because of a dodgy hard drive. So installed kernel 2.6.8

Installed ndiswrapper fine using bcmwl5.inf/sys from the CD (as before) - everything works as it apparently should do , including dmesg.

But everything I do from then on just doesn't work at all. trying to set keys and essids give back

> iwconfig wlan0 key "s:xxxxx"
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.

I've ploughed through this entre thread and tried everything anyone has suggested - no luck.

Any suggestions? :/

^^^^ I just compiled gentoo kernel 2.6.8 and it doesn't load ndiswrapper at boot up. It may just be a problem with the kernel for you as well. Lots of people are having problems with 2.6.8

I have a Sony Vaio V505DP Centrino with the IPW2200 card.

I had everything working with ndiswrapper 0.7 and 0.8 (from the ndiswrapper website) using the Intel supplied Windows XP drivers, apart from occasional trouble with setting the encryption key (kept getting "invalid argument" errors).

I've now installed the ndiswrapper 0.9 ebuild and gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.8-r1 and I can no longer set the ESSID, whih prevents me from connecting, although I have no problems setting the key. Using iwgetid wlan0 returns a string of garbage. If I do an iwlist scanning when I first boot, the card finds someone else's unsecured AP, and iwgetid returns "linksys?@&" (not the correct garbage at the end there). If I then set the ESSID, it changes to garbage, and I can't change it without a reboot.

I think I'm going to have to revert back to ndiswrapper 0.7, unless someone knows of a fix for this

Everything is working correctly in windows XP, and with my housemates gentoo laptop (using a pcmcia wireless card), so the network isn't the problem

Did it work with 0.7 or 0.8 and the 2.6.8 kernel??? It could be the kernel causing problems rather than the new version of ndiswrapper (see my earlier post). Maybe try 0.9 but boot from a 2.6.7 kernel to eliminate the kernel as a cause of trouble...

Im running a 2.6.8-r2 kernel on a Centrino Laptop using the IPW2200. I downloaded ndiswrapper .10 from http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net and it worked perfectly with my system.

For me, it turns out that I just had to do "make install" again with the ndiswrapper. :oops: Now it works fine with 2.6.8 so I take it back...

Hi all, I'm having a bit of trouble with ndiswrapper-0.10

I've installed ndiswrapper and my drivers directly off the Linksys CD.

All files seem to be in /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmwl5.

and when i run ndiswrapper -l i receive the following message:
Code:
bcmwl5 hardware present


I run modprobe ndiswrapper with no errors. But, when I run iwconfig 'wlan0' does not show up. I only recieve this:
Code:
lo no wireless extensions.

ppp0 no wireless extensions.



in dmesg, ndiswrapper shows up, but it doesn't report an interface;
Code:
ndiswrapper version 0.10 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)


my System Specs:
gentoo 2004.2
kernel 2.6.7
wmp54gs wireless network card
