I have installed the cvs version as of half an hour ago on my Dell 500m with
PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 using the second driver linked to on the webpage.
DriverVer = 07/31/2003,126.96.36.199
It works fine without WEP. If WEP is turned on I can set the key with iwconfig
and it will show it correctly along with the MAC of the AP but there is no
Is the wrapper supposed to support WEP with this network card?
One thing different from the INSTALL file.
# ndiswrapper -l
Installed ndis drivers:
What does the fuzzy mean?

I have a similar problem here. Been tryinng for weeks now to get my
Pro/Wireless 2100 working with encrytpion, tried diffenernt kernel
versions and different ndiswrapper versions without success. Without
encryption, however, it works perfectly! I also tried it in different
WLANs, so my AP is not to blame.
Here's my config:
IBM Thinkpad T40 (Centrino)
Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100
ndiswrapper 0.4 with driver from the homepage (tried both)
I'm trying to bring up the connection like this:
loadndisdriver 8086 1043 /usr/share/ndiswrapper/W70N51.SYS
This turns on the WLAN light on my notebook. Also, the card appears in
iwconfig wlan0 key s:mygreatwepkey
When calling iwconfig after this I see that the key is set correctly and
that the card has already found the local AP and the corrent ESSID was
set automatically. Then I try
and it times out. I have also tried setting an IP manually and pinging
around in the Network, but this also didn't work.
Any suggestions? Having a working WLAN on my Thinkpad under Linux would
be really great, I'd be happy for every answer.
