Hi,

I need some help.

last weekend installed etch kernel 2.6.18,
all ndiswrapper tools via apt-get
sources.list points to etch and testing

denkbrett:/home/georg/tmp# apt-cache search ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper-common - Common scripts required to use the utilities for
ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper-source - Source for the ndiswrapper linux kernel module
ndiswrapper-utils - Userspace utilities for ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper-utils-1.1 - Userspace utilities for ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 - Userspace utilities for the ndiswrapper linux
kernel module
ndiswrapper-modules-2.6.18-4-686 - Ndiswrapper linux kernel module

I followed this way to install my wlan-card
http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/InstallDebianEtch

to find which card I have i tried

denkbrett:/home/georg/tmp# pccardctl info
PRODID_1="3Com"
PRODID_2="3CRWE62092B Wireless LAN PC Card"
PRODID_3=""
PRODID_4=""
MANFID=0101,0620
FUNCID=6
PRODID_1=""
PRODID_2=""
PRODID_3=""
PRODID_4=""
MANFID=0000,0000
FUNCID=255

iwconfig gives

eth1 IEEE 802.11-DS ESSID:""
Mode:Managed Channel:4 Access Point: FF:00:00:00:00:00
Bit Rate:11 Mb/s

Encryption key:off
Power Management:off
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

with the information from pccardctl I found

from www.3com.com
3Com® 11 Mbps Wireless LAN PC Card
with XJACK® Antenna; Product # 3CRWE62092B

3crwe62092b2_1_1_3005.exe 10 Sep 2003 2.1.1.3005 0.14 MB

after unpacking and install via
ndiswrapper -i netwp92b.inf

I get

denkbrett:/home/georg/tmp# ndiswrapper -l
installed drivers:
netwp92b invalid driver!
denkbrett:/home/georg/tmp#

iwlist scanning gives:

denkbrett:/home/georg/tmp# iwlist eth1 scan
eth1 Interface doesn't support scanning : Resource temporarily
unavailable

Question:
what is wrong?
is the card supported?
wrong version of ndiswrapper? 1.28 installed, latest 1.39 available but
not yet tested.

Any ideas?

Thank you in andvance

Georg
