Cant connect with NetworkManager while using Ndiswrapper
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
Description of problem: I cant associate with any AP using the ndiswrapper
driver. It will attepmt to connect then time out
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
it never works. So, highly reproducable
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install/configure ndiswrapper
2. test to make sure card/driver work
3. use NetworkManager to connect to a network.
4. it times out and fails
I also have this issue.
Same here, I've also experienced this same thing with the BCM43xx_mac80211
module with my Broadcom card. Have tested this using the BCM43xx_mac80211 module
with an intel wireless card and Network manager works fine. Seems isolated to
ndiswrapper and broadcom cards on bcm43xx_mac80211

syslog networkmanager cutting
Same problem for me using bcm43xx_mac80211 and ndiswrapper.
bcm43xx_mac80211 syslog NetworkManager cutting attached.
same problems here...
i also have a bcm4318 chip.. with fc6 everything worked fine with ndiswrapper
with new ndiswrapper from livna it works
great! maybe the bcm43xx-mac80211 issue is a driver problem, also and we shall
report a bug against the kernel.
i, personally, can't connect with wlassistant, either.
I will confirm what Klaus said. I have downloaded the latest update of
ndiswrapper from livna, previously v1.43, now v1.46, does work with Network Manager.
