I'm trying to get a PCI WMP54G wlan card up and going but I seem to be
having an annoying issue.
Now, when I use version 0.6 of ndiswrapper (both using the Fedora Core
rpm from Dag's Apt Repository and compiling from scratch) everything
seems to go perfectly until I go to get my essid, and then... nothing.
# iwlist wlan0 scan
wlan0 No scan results
# iwconfig wlan0 essid USR8054
doesn't work either, despite that being my router's essid. There is no
WEP encryption being used.
despite my access point router being about 4 feet from it (And I know
i've managed to get it going elsewhere in the house through win) and I
also know that I have a "very good" reception of one of my neighbors
access points, but it finds nothing.
A couple points for your reference. The last lines of dmesg are:
ndiswrapper version 0.6 loaded
ndiswrapper adding bcmwl5.sys

Now, before you jump on the "Use the newest cvs" I get even less further
along using that. I get up to
# modprobe ndiswrapper
(already ndiswrapper -i'd the driver)
and got:/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2174.nptl/misc/ndiswrapper.o: unresolved
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2174.nptl/misc/ndiswrapper.o: insmod ndiswrapper
Now, I am using a 2.4.22 kernel... is that possibly the problem? Do I
need to upgrade? Need more information?
Thanks in advance for the help.
