I've been having trouble with my wireless for the last 2 kernel updates (current, 126.96.36.199-108 and 188.8.131.52-97). Last known good kernel was 184.108.40.206.86 I believe. Unfortunately I had not set yum.conf to keep more than 2 kernels, or exclude kernel updates.
So now I'm stuck trying in vain to get my machine to work with wireless and ndiswrapper (worked flawlessly before).
I have ndiswrapper installed, and the drivers for my wireless card installed:
[mark@home: ~/Documents/fah]$ ndiswrapper -l
mrv8k64 : driver installed
device (11AB:1FA6) present
I run depmod -a, and modprobe ndiswrapper, and the kernel module is loaded
[mark@home: ~/Documents/fah]$ modprobe -l | tail
but looking at the output of dmesg I get:
[root@home: ~]# dmesg | grep ndis
ndiswrapper version 1.53 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)
ndiswrapper (link_pe_images:575): fixing KI_USER_SHARED_DATA address in the driver
ndiswrapper: driver mrv8k64 (Marvell,06/08/2005,220.127.116.11) loaded
ndiswrapper: using IRQ 18
ndiswrapper (mp_init:219): couldn't initialize device: C0000001
ndiswrapper (pnp_start_device:435): Windows driver couldn't initialize the device (C0000001)
ndiswrapper (mp_halt:262): device ffff8100bd3c6700 is not initialized - not halting
ndiswrapper: device eth%d removed
ndiswrapper: probe of 0000:01:08.0 failed with error -22
usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper
and the output of "ifconfig wlan0" returns something to the effect that the system is not aware of the device:
[root@home: ~]# ifconfig wlan0
wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
No amount of finagling, rebooting, even trying to compile ndiswrapper myself has work. I've actually resorted to a fresh install of f9, just in case I had corrupted something, but the results are the same.
Is anyone facing the same issues? Can somebody shed some light?
