Hello there .
I'm an Arch user and till recently I worked with ndiswrapper 06 and kernel
2.6.5 ( I got a dwl 650+ nic )
Just the last day I upgrade my system (with the pacman command) and
installed a 3.4.0-1 ver of gcc and
The 2.6.5-3 ver of the kernel. After that, when rebooting or trying to
manually modprobing the ndiswrapper
I got an error saying the the driver is in the wrong format. I thought that
I will chk if there is a new version
Of ndiswrapper and install it over the old one. So I downloaded the 07 ver
of ndiswrapper and got the module
Working, but now I can't seem to make the iwconfig change the Essid setting
(that worked at the old version).
I tried to install the old version but I got the same thing...
So here are my Q's:
1. Is it a known problem of the 07 version?
2. Did I really have to reinstall the ndiswrapper after the changes I
made on the system?
3. How can I know for sure with what version of ndiswrapper the system
4. How can I solve the Essid problem?

After kernel upgrade you need to recompile the ndiswrapper.[k]o module.

'less /ver/log/syslog' or just chek in 'dmesg'.

What version is the iwconfig?
