CAN'T FIND WIRELESS DEVICE IN NETWORK SETTING ONLY MODEM

CAN'T FIND WIRELESS DEVICE IN NETWORK SETTING ONLY MODEM

CAN'T FIND WIRELESS DEVICE IN NETWORK SETTING ONLY MODEM

(OP)
Hi,

I am using Ubuntu 7.07 on a separate system.

I am using a Engenius EUB-362 EXT module. It connects to a yagi antenna and it is a usb lan driver device. Since I am located within three public hotspots, I am picking up excellent signals. It works flawlessly in Windows but I want it to work properly in Ubuntu. I compiled ndiswrapper to work with the the 362 drivers and they are on my desktop. I type first sudo modprobe ndiswrapper and then ndiswrapper  -l, it lists the inf file of the device Net5523:driver installed and device present and I cannot find the device in network setting.

How can I get the device to be recognized in Network so I go on line in Ubuntu ?
Thanks

Arthur

RE: CAN'T FIND WIRELESS DEVICE IN NETWORK SETTING ONLY MODEM

What does iwconfig or ipconfig tell you?

If you see a wlan1 (I think that is what ndiswrapper uses), then it found the card.

Not sure what configuration you've done for wireless in Ubuntu, but if you see wlan1, try "ifup wlan1" or "dhclient wlan1" and see what response you get.

Hi,

The wireless Atheros chip is a AR5001 chip wireless Network Adapter. I didn't have any luck  running the commands you suggested.
Below is what happened. Hope this gives you some clues

server1@server1:~$ sudo ndiswrapper  -i /Desktop/net5523.inf
driver net5523 is already installed
server1@server1:~$ ndiswrapper -l
net5523 : driver installed
        device (0CF3:0002) present
server1@server1:~$ sudo  depmod  -a
server1@server1:~$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
server1@server1:~$ sudo ndiswrapper  -m
module configuration already contains alias directive

server1@server1:~$ iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

server1@server1:~$ ipconfig
bash: ipconfig: command not found
server1@server1:~$




RE: CAN'T FIND WIRELESS DEVICE IN NETWORK SETTING ONLY MODEM

ipconfig is a Windows/dos-command,
try

CODE

ifconfig

It could also be of interresse to see the output of:

CODE

cat /proc/interrupts
cat /proc/ioports
