I’m trying to avoid telling people to remove a module that shouldn’t have been loaded at all in their rc. I did uninstall it and went back to hardy and wireless was nowhere to be found. Module Installation Install the relevant linux-headers, ndiswrapper-utils I rebooted without my wired connection plugged in. Thanks very much; it works. Some confusion has occurred as to whether the “L” is a “1” or an “I”, hopefully that clarifies! After reboot again the wired connection works fine.

Enter the e-mail address of the recipient Add your own personal message: It uses the same driver you’ll use in XP, just wraps it into the linux kernel. I’m running a HP laptop, tx, hardy heron, amd x Both should work equally well. Worked fine for me: Nothing, i if i don’t start from, sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper and work my way though the guide again i can’t get the light to go blue.

This guide is designed to get around a bunch of annoyances for Broadcom cards in the 2. Results 1—2 of 2 1. Local Loopback inet addr: So remove the one that’s there: They both remove a module from the kernel.
Well the interface that should be configuring is your wired interface. Mine is the fresh installation of ubuntu. I honestly don’t know much about WPA connections, for that I refer you to kevdog’s thread http: I think it’s just a name that designates the b43 module or maybe it’s more broadly defined and includes b43 and b43legacy, I’m not sure, but I know that in my case it’s a label meant to point to the b43 module.
I would feel more secure with what im doing, maybe identify when the problem occurs? I know I had problems on another OS using the b43 drivers in this manner didn’t want to bother with ndiswrapper so haven’t tried it. The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback The primary network interface iface eth1 inet dhcp auto eth1 oleg OlegsCPU: The latest version is available from the Hardy repositories which is a rather nice change for those of us who are used to the need to recompile ndiswrapper on every kernel change!
Are you sure you have linux-restricted-modules By default this script does nothing. The reason ‘ssb’ gets loaded even if we blacklist it and is able to take control of our WiFi card, is because it is contained in the initramfs.
If lspci above showed that you had a different chipset, this driver won’t work. Thanks for any help. Hei, Your guide got me further than all of the other ones but I still run into a problem with the driver. My current problem is WPA security.
Pointed my Device Manager “Update Driver” to the expanded folder. Then I just followed every single step of the tutorial, and after rebooting, I had wifi working.
I just did a fresh install and went through the guide again, and now the wireless light is on, but still no luck getting the network manager to work the wireless.
Firefox internet options seems to be okay with “Use System Proxy Settings” highlighted. You should also be able to use the restricted x; manager to do all of this for you, with one click.
Which is what I received before.
Notes on Installing Windows XP on a Compaq F500 Series Laptop
I think you should start a new thread 14e44 the BC linux forum. Which of those two do you recommend, and how do I get it installed? The how-to has been tested and found to work on both AMD64 and i installs of Ubuntu Hardy Heron, and should also work on all future versions.
