I recently bought a new network card (Belkin PCI Wireless-G Desktop
network adapter). However, I am having trouble getting this to work
using ndiswrapper despite trying a number of different guides.
I am running Ubuntu (Feisty Fawn) 64-bit. I have a custom compiled
kernel (2.6.22) with SMP (accidentally) compiled in, which is a bit
pointless as I only have one processor. (I mention this on the off
chance it could be a problem).
Ethernet controller: Belkin Unknown device 700f (rev 20)
and lspci -n:
00:0c.0 0200: 1799:700f (rev 20)
These are not the exact values, as I am at work, but I know that the
1799:700f (rev 20) is correct, as is the whole first line.
When I tried to install the card last night I used the 64-bit windows
drivers from the Realtek Taiwan website, as I read you should use the
drivers from this site (although they made no mention of 64-bit). The
drivers were from:
ndiswrapper -i <inffile>
ndiswrapper -a <address> <driver_name>
and doing ndiswrapper -l said driver and hardware were present, so I
restarted. However, now my computer hands on startup just to
ndiswrapper crashing. I believe it is the same problem as from here:
Has anyone else has any similar problems?
Any help you can offer is appreciated.
