  • System is locking up using any version of ndiswrapper 0.11 and greater.

    1) System boots up and wireless card is initialized.
    2) when I run ndiswrapper-buginfo it fails to reinitialze the wireless card after reinstalling the driver.
    3) After this I have to reboot my system to get the wireless card to initialize.
    4) After about 24 to 48 hours of normal use my system will lock up.
    5) Lack of a kernel panic message is because if I am in X when this happens I don't get a kernel panic message. Just a frozen system.
    6) I have been fighting this problem eversince version 0.11 came out. I have tried everything I can think of. I have even tried the Asus Drivers instead of D-Links. Only result there is that I am unable to use my wireless card at all with the Asus Drivers but the card does initialize. Just won't talk to the router. Pings to the router with the Asus driver returns Host unreachable. Pings to any address outside my LAN returns Requests timed out. So I have to use the D-Link drivers. I would love to know how someone managed to get the Asus drivers to work with this D-Link card. Maybe it would help.
