Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 1300 with a Broadcom wireless card.
I've installed gentoo, I've disabled kernel support for SMP, I've installed ndiswrapper, and finally I've installed windows driver bcmwl5.inf correctly.
My wireless light indicator is powered, but if I do iwconfig this is the output:

localhost ~ # iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

Can you help me? :(
Thanks a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please post output of the following commands:
Code:
# lsmod
# ndiswrapper -l
# lspci


Also, have you tried the in-kernel Broadcom drivers yet?

Hi,
firstly thanks for relpy.
Here is my output:
Code:

   # lsmod
   Module      Size   Used by

   # ndiswrapper -l
   bcmwl5 : driver installed
      device (14E4:4318) present

   # lspci
   ....
   .......
   02:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [Airforce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)

I know there are some kernel versions with Broadcom Wireless support:
Code:

Device Drivers --> Network device support --> Wireless LAN drivers (non-hamradio) & Wireless Extensions
     <M>   Broadcom BCM43xx wireless support
     [*]     Broadcom BCM43xx debugging (RECOMMENDED)

but in my "make menuconfig" kernel configuration, I didn't find it. I found only:
Device Drivers --> Network device support --> Wireless LAN
with a list of drivers, but there isn't the Broadcom one.
I have 2.6.22 kernel.

Now, (and not firstly) I noted that I have the following output:
Code:

# modprobe ndiswrapper
FATAL: Could not open '/lib/modules/2.6.22-gentoo-r8/misc/ndiswrapper.ko': Invalid module format


So I can't load module ndiswrapper.
Nobody can help me?

Hi,

lukkio84, do you have the latest version of ndiswrapper, which is now 1.50

By the way, I have a problem with my wireless connection, it keeps ASSOCIATING/SCANNING, I use ndiswrapper and wpa_supplicant, below is the output of wpa_supplicant when started manually, I'd be glad if anyone has an idea ;-)

        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm attempting to get a Linksys WUSB300N working, using the driver listed on a compatability list on the web. It appears to work properly, but I keep getting "no wireless extensions".

dmesg output:
(snipped)
ndiswrapper version 1.50 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
resnet80-80# ndiswrapper -l
netmw245 : driver installed
device (13B1:0029) present
resnet80-80# iwconfig eth2
eth2 no wireless extensions.

Where eth2 is the device name it seems to give it (don't know why it isn't wlan0).

Am I missing something obvious? I'm fairly sure I followed the instructions either here or on the ndiswrapper wiki when I set up nidiswrapper.

Thanks much!
