I've got the same Belkin card (version 3000), and I'm just downloading the latest ndiswrapper now on my Windows box to transfer to a fresh 2004.3 install. I'm hoping to not have this issue pop up for me as well... consider this a courtesy bump! :)

How are you accessing PCMCIA slots on your machine, and with what kernel? For instance, I'm using the included kernel-2.4.26-gentoo-r9 (gentoo-sources), and hand-configured it to NOT include PCMCIA support but INCLUDE wireless support (built-in, not module).

The Belkin card is a PCI device, so, it will show up in lspci command even if you do not the pcmcia package compiled.

I have a centrino and using w70n51.inf (along with the .sys and .dll file). I am using vanillia 2.6.10-r1 and I had emerged ndiswrapper .12 r3 I believe it was (might have the wrong r, but definately .12). I originally had a problem with 4STACKS but fixed it. Now everything works fine UNTIL i modprobe ndiswrapper. When I do this the kernel hangs. I can't type anything (kernel is unresponsive) into any terminal or end X. I have tried to uninstall and reinstalling, but it is always the same end result. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.[/u]

I had this problem as well. It seems that *whilst* it has hung, you can still change virtual terms, and I found that if I press the hardware button to turn on the wireless device it works.

Alright, I'm relatively new to Linux (read: n00b) and I can't get ndiswrapper to work.

I get the error:

Code:
# modprobe ndiswrapper
FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.10-gentoo-r6/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid module format


and dmesg says:

Code:
ndiswrapper: version magic '2.6.10-gentoo-r6 SMP preempt PENTIUM4 gcc-3.3' should be '2.6.10-gentoo-r6 SMP preempt PENTIUM4 4KSTACKS gcc-3.3'


I've tried running "update-modules", but it doesn't solve any of the problems. Same thing happens afterwards. Any help would be much appreciated.

I also got this error when I'd compiled ndiswrapper on a different kernel then I was running.. For example if I compiled the kernel, then upgraded the kernel.. Then I would get that error..
Just re-compile ndiswrapper
Code:
 emerge ndiswrapper

PostPosted: Mon Mar 14, 2005 8:21 am    Post subject: Ndiswrapper and network bridge Reply with quote

I've succesfully made ndiswrapper work..
I get ip via dhcp from the wireless router and i get a good ping time..
But I need to set up a network bridge with a ordinary ethernet card and a wireless card.
I made a bridge and added eth0 and wlan0..
I "upped" the devices
Code:
ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig wlan0 up

And finally I upped the bridge and started dhcpcd
Code:
ifconfig br0 up
dhcpcd br0

I recieved a IP-adress from the router, but I could not ping for example www.google.com or the router (10.0.0.1).
I got ping response from computers on the network connected to eth0, but none connected to the wlan..
What could be wrong? It works fine when I'm not bridging it... Has anyone successfully made a wlan>eth bridge? Please help.. I have to use windows XP to make a wlan to ethernet bridge and that blows.. Its the only windows machine I've got left, and I can't wait to throw it away.

How do you do step 2 of this ndiswrapper howto:


2. Kernel Setup
DISABLE support for SMP in kernel. (This is very important, many headaches will be spared by doing so)



I guess my specific question is about how to disable support for SMP in the kernel?

in the menuconfig for your kernel, go to Processor type and features --->
and then its listed as "Symetric multi-processing support" disable that

there ya go!

good luck!

oh yeah, you're also gonna have to recompile and install your kernel as well.

When i boot up, and my computer is loading ndiswrapper, I get the following error:
Code:

error calling: "unlink" in "Global"


It lists this error twice and then continues loading modules and finishes booting. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

I have my pcmcia/wireless card setup working with an Orinoco silver card. But I also have a Linksys wpc54g V2 and I cannot get the card to load properly. I downloaded wpc54gv2_driver_utility_v2.02.zip from the ndiswrapper list. There were a few .inf's and .sys's, the first I tried didnt work which was lsbcmnds.inf, it would load but not find the hardware. Then I tried LSTINDS.INF, it found the hardware so I attempted to load ndiswrapper. When loaded in dmesg it gave me some error about the windows driver not intializing, I have been unable to find anything on how to fix it. Here is all the useful info, if anyone can help me I would much rather have my G card work than my B card.

BTW I emerged ndiswrapper from portage rather than building the latest from their site, would grabbing the latest from their site fix this?


Code:

5150 windrivers # lspci |grep Network
0000:03:00.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments ACX 111 54Mbps Wireless Interface

Code:
5150 windrivers # ndiswrapper -l
Installed ndis drivers:
lsbcmnds        driver present
lstinds driver present, hardware present

Code:

5150 windrivers # dmesg |grep ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper version 1.1 loaded (preempt=yes,smp=no)
ndiswrapper: driver lstinds (Linksys,03/10/2004,6.0.0.18) loaded

ndiswrapper: probe of 0000:03:00.0 failed with error -22


I have seen the above error in few other places but no solution.

I am having an issue with my Linksys WPC54G wireless pcmcia card. I emerged ndiswrapper, and set it up according to the first post. The card appears to be working fine, as the power LED on the card lights up, and there are no errors on bootup. However, when I go to set the ssid using iwconfig wlan0 essid <essid> my system goes berserk, spitting out messages so fast I cant even read them. they go along the lines of this:

<c023402523> awfasjngijgnapwioejgnawipejgnawegnaewg [ndiswrapper]

Where the numbers are a repeating pattern of hex numbers and the random letters are illegible messages (they are scrolling too fast to read on my LCD panel). It appears to be caught in an endless error-loop. I cant break, switch terminals, nothing. The only thing I can do is hard reset.

The howto is good and very detailed so I hoped on getting my wireless card up and running but I got some errors when I do
#modprobe ndiswrapper
/lib/modules/2.4.22-gentoo-r3/misc/ndiswrapper.o: unresolved symbol pci_set_consistent_dma_mask
/lib/modules/2.4.22-gentoo-r3/misc/ndiswrapper.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-gentoo-r3/misc/ndiswrapper.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.22-gentoo-r3/misc/ndiswrapper.o: insmod ndiswrapper failed

I get thoose errors. I'm running, 2.4.22-gentoo-r3 the card is a D-Link DWL-510 and should work since it's listed.
If anyone could take the time to help a noobie I would be a happy boy :)

I am also having some problems with modprobe. I have been trying to get my Linksys WMP54GS card working and everything went well up to the modprobe stage however once there and I execute
Code:

modprobe ndiswrapper

It totally locks up and I have to reboot.

Also for some stupid reason I executed this
Code:

echo "ndiswrapper" >> /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-<version>

even though modprobe didn't work (big mistake) so now gentoo hangs when I boot it. How do I unload the module from the boot process and what do I need to do to succesfully execute modprobe ndiswrapper?

Remove the entry from /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel, if you've got hotplug installed then that'll load ndiswrapper for you when needed. What driver are you using with ndiswrapper ?

Edit - If you can't access your install, then you'll need a live CD handy.

hi everyone

Just wanted to say that I managed to get it running on a zv5000 HP labtop, with amd64.
My card is a "Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)" (from lspci), and I used the 64b drivers from linuxant and wireless-tools.
The install was straightforward, and once I figured out what I needed to do, I didn't meet any problem on the path to a world without f******g wires.
The connection seems to be quite stable.

Since ndiswrapper is masked by ~amd64 in portage, I wonder if there is some kind of mail/form/forum where I can tell the gentoo guys "hey it's working with my computer's hardware" ?

PCI: Using ACPI for IRQ routing
** PCI interrupts are no longer routed automatically.  If this
** causes a device to stop working, it is probably because the
** driver failed to call pci_enable_device().  As a temporary
** workaround, the "pci=routeirq" argument restores the old
** behavior.  If this argument makes the device work again,
** please email the output of "lspci" to bjorn.helgaas@hp.com
** so I can fix the driver.

Your time source seems to be instable or some driver is hogging interupts

Code:

oadndiswrapper failed (65280)


is that a problem with the compile?

needless to ssay WLAN does ot show up in my dmesg..

by the way amd64 hense all the time problems.....
ticks etc, working on that aswell ;)

thanks prox.

Can I post a success story ? ;-)
My first attempt to get this card working was through the use of the linux opensource driver rt2500 by serialmonkey, but it failed. Projet seems in the process of rebuilding the drivers, so...
I then turned to Ndiswrapper, installation went like a charm and i could see dmesg displaying happy ndiswrapper logs, i could even see the wlan0 interface -AP was detected automatically for me- using iwconfig. However, the link status showed 0/100. This gave me headaches as I suspected quite everything to be responsible...But it was kernel configs that prevented it to communicate, i could spot it. I had to disable CONFIG_PREEMPT -SMP was already- in the kernel. Now I have the maximum link rate 100/100
That s why you might keep an eye on preempt status when troubleshooting
**Ca waaaaax now**
CONFIG_PREEMPT CONFIG_SMP disabled is a good idea
