I have noticed that the highest use-able ndiswrapper version is 1.14 - I did not check the higher odd numbers. In this instance I use a Dell Latitude CP M233XT and the linksys WPC54G-v2 (Broadcom 4306) adapter. I have the latest WPC54G Windows software driver (version 1.31) available for this card. I use(d) various versions of wpa_supplicant up to and including 0.4.9.
Any higher version then 1.14 does not see that the drivers support WPA as well as association is not possible.
I use(d) Linux 2.4.20-32 and 2.6.16-17. All prerequisites where satisfied.
With version 1.14 and lower, everything works fine.
I am using a WMP54G from Linksys (broadcom43xx)on SUSE 10.0 with ndiswrapper-1.23, wpa_supplicant_0.5.4 and I have also noticed strange behaviours like :
Try this : uninstall and reinstall your driver with the commands :
ndiswrapper -e driver
ndiswrapper -i driver.inf
Did so, no change.
It is just as if after 1.14 a change in de code has been introduced which breaks things.
Beside the troubelsome boot up, the bcm43xx kernel module works equally well.
You need to use '-Dwext' instead of '-Dndiswrapper' with 1.14 or newer version of ndiswrapper.
