You don’t have a proxy or anything set up for the wired connection? Like maybe an hour of experience total. It’s a much nicer solution and it should help you be connected to a network by the time you reach your desktop if the rest of it is set up nicely anyway as it’ll load ndiswrapper much earlier in the boot-up sequence. Champers pointed out that he needed to create a script to run: Dell XPS M laptop. Thank you for the effort of filling in the missing spaces for paperdiesel’s howto, however.

wireless and wired internet not working – Windows XP Home and Professional
Just some ideas I’m tossing 14e — need others to play with these things to confirm if they work. After that I found your tutorial. This driver wrapper is only available for use on the x86 and x architectures Debian i and AMD64 ports respectively. I’m using the drivers I used in feisty and gutsy to get ndiswrapper to work rather than the ones listed in the howto.
Notes on Installing Windows XP on a Compaq F500 Series Laptop
This problem was observed both on my home network, and on a different brand router at the beach house. Although I think I’ll need to verify at what stage b44 gets loaded if it’s not blacklisted to see whether ndiswrapper is called prior.
My wireless would work, then suddenly it would drop connection, Should I go back and try this method? D Here’s the output op asked for: Well I inadvertantly installed a kernel update before rebooting.
This worked perfect the second try for me Well, the ndiswrapper documentation claims that if an ‘alternate driver’ is listed that driver may be used by ndiswrapper to “initialize” the hardware. It uses the same driver you’ll use in XP, just wraps it into the linux kernel. Is there any chance I messed with the hardware which is causing XP to go on the fritz?
I had done the method where you install windows gui drivers can’t remember the exact name since I am not on my machine at the momentI downloaded and used the drivers R Probably shouldn’t have introduced another variable. I haven’t tried turning my wireless switch on and off then on again to see if that works yet though. Probably something you’d want to file a bug against, the package should have been upgraded when the kernel was upgraded.
Curious thing is that every time I boot in safe mode it works.
NdisWrapper – Debian Wiki
Everything seems to be fine, but I cannot successfully connect to my network encrypted with WPA. I’ve tried this so many times this afternoon that I can’t figure out why this guide worked and all the other similar ones didn’t, heh: I apologize because I didn’t see this post earlier before I posted my previous question about “How To” on Ubuntu 8. Because Vista seems happier with lots of memory, I elected to add an additional MB of memory, bringing the onboard memory up to an even 1 GB.
The posting of advertisements, profanity, or personal attacks is prohibited. Try installing it and ‘linux-ubuntu-modules Just switching off the device is not the best way to do this.
I’ll tottle of and try with XP drivers -o Edit, same happens with XP drivers, not working after restart. Today when I booted-up the laptop wifi card is getting detected.
The problem I had at first was that your version of this was modprobe -r b44 431 -r ssb modprobe ndiswrapper modprobe b44 The above didn’t work for me after booting up but it did once I added modprobe -r ndiswrapper before modprobe ndiswrapper Hope that helps others! I followed all the steps – note that the file retrieved from Dell was wget http: Since you’ve already submitted a review for this product, this submission will be added as an update to your original review.
I was just being stupid, thanks.
I just forgot to turn on my wireless xD Thanks jw! No working leases in persistent database – sleeping.

I stumbled across some useful debugging output though, it seems the ndiswrapper driver is just never loaded. I tried configuring the network using wifi-radar. That means 44311 expects to still be able to use that interface, even though you’ve cut the power to the device. Sort Date Most helpful Positive rating Negative rating.
