Hi folks, running Fedora 10 with kernel 22.214.171.124-117. I have a
DWL-G650 Rev A1 PCMCIA card in this machine (which is an HP nc8000
laptop btw) whose chipset is not supported by prism54. As a result I'm
trying to get it working with ndiswrapper, but as of yet, having little
03:00.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation ISL3890 [Prism GT/Prism Duette]/ISL3886 [Prism Javelin/Prism Xbow] (rev 01)
# lspci -n
03:00.0 0280: 1260:3890 (rev 01)
I'm using dwlg650A1_drivers_108.zip from:
Installed things via the following steps:
1. Made sure no prism54 modules were still loaded.
2. Extracted windows driver.
3. Executed ndiswrapper -i PRISMNIC.inf
# ndiswrapper -l
prismnic : driver installed
device (1260:3890) present (alternate driver: p54pci)
5. Attempted to load driver:
# modprobe ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper version 1.53 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
ndiswrapper: driver prismnic (D-Link,12/04/2002, 1.0.5) loaded

usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper
I've tried a couple other versions of the driver.. 1.07 and 1.03 in
that directory as well as trying the .sys file that's in the WINXP
subdirectory of the driver (not sure how it differs from the .sys file
in the main directory). No go...
Anyone have any ideas of what I should try next or why this isn't
I have confirmed the card works fine on this machine in Windows...

Please try the other driver, p54. If you have any problems, report them
to linux-wireless@... with lspci data for the card.

The errors must be from the Windows driver, so it's quite hard to fix.
