View Full Version : ndiswrapper in fc6

26th October 2006, 12:25 AM

is there any reason why ndiswrapper shouldn't work in fc6? i used version 1.27 of ndiswrapper with the .inf file i used before in fc5 but

ndiswrapper -l

gives "invalid driver"

i tried again with an old version of ndiswrapper (1.23), as used with fc5, but typing

iwconfig wlan0 key xxxxxxxxx

causes the kernel to crash.

any ideas would be appreciated.

thanks, rik.

ok, so i uninstalled ndiswrapper and started again with version 1.23. it seems to load driver ok, then crashes when i try to set essid.

i turned mode to ad-hoc (iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc), and now i can change the essid without crashing. but now when i try to run

iwconfig wlan0 key open xxxxxxxx

it says invalid argument, interface not recognised or something (can't remember). changing mode back to managed causes kernel to crash.

i have no idea what could be causing these problems, and any help would be appreciated.
