Hi. I'm trying to get a Trendnet TEW-424UB wireless adapter to work on my
laptop. I installed ndiswrapper (different versions tried) and the Windows
driver (XP, 2000 etc) then I checked ndiswrapper -l and the driver is
installed. The device is visible with the lsusb command. The problem I have is
when I run "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper", the system hangs. When I do this, the
light on the adapter comes on, but the system immediately hangs. On hard
reboot, the device light does not come on and it does not load in network
manager. I can't sniff any information from log.
If you're using a 64bit Kernel, chances are, that it's this bug:
This is fixed in the trunk version, so you could try the trunk and see, if
this helps (we should create a new 1.57 version in the near future)
If you're using a 32bit Kernel or have already tried the trunk, then we really
need the oops message. Maybe you can see some information, if you do something
sleep 5;sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
and switch to the message screen (Ctrl-F10 on SuSE Linux - I don't know, if
it's the same on ubuntu), before the oops kicks in.
Thank you for the reply! I'm using 32bit kernel and there aren't any oops
information in the logs. Some information i managed to find in
/var/log/messages but it seems to be ok. Ndiswrapper normally loads windows
driver sis163u and it initializes TEW-424UB without any errors. (Can't paste
exact log because I see it only when oops happened) There is no information in
dmesg. Are there any other solutions?
Well, I.ve switched to maverick ubuntu which ships with 2.6.35-22 kernel. The
problem still exists.
