Hi Madhan,

I have the same issue using a D-Link DWL-G650+ with ndiswrapper. This works quite well, except two issues:

- freezing (think is because of 4-k-stack)
this is resolvable with some kernels using the 16-k-stack from linuxant

- WPA
as this d-link-thing never wanted to work well with my barricade under wep, i used wpa - this works well under windows. in conjunction with linux/ndiswrapper (or perhaps even your card) i installed the wpa/wpa2/ieee802.1x-supplicant from here: http://hostap.epitest.fi/wpa_supplicant/


so, all i had to do is installing ndiswrapper (my card has been recognized on boot-up *yipieeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*), installing ndiswrapper and the supplicant.

All you have to do in the supplicant-config is creating a file called .config, containing:

CONFIG_DRIVER_NDISWRAPPER=y

and then do make. copy the executables whereever you want (...and whereever you gonna find them again...)

afterwards, create (e.g. in /etc/ a file for your wpa-config), the name doesn't matter, and i have the following content:


network={ ssid="home" scan_ssid=1 key_mgmt=WPA-PSK psk="very secret passphrase" }

shouldn't be a problem, as i just use wpa-psk on my smc 2804wbpr-g barricade...

but it doesn't yet work, i let you know, when i get it working.. ;-)


Just wrote this, that you perhaps get an idea...
