Re: A little wireless/ndiswrapper help



On some D-Link routers there is a "Burst" or "pipeline" or "something like that" setting in the config.  Try turning that off and configure the radio for optimum distance instead of speed (default setting I think) and see if it lets you connect.

Hm, I get the exact same thing. Here's what I get in messages when I
load it:

Jul 15 23:01:10 kernel: ndiswrapper version 1.1 loaded
(preempt=no,smp=yes)
Jul 15 23:01:10 kernel: ndiswrapper: driver bcmwl5 (Broadcom,04/21/2005,

Jul 15 23:01:10 kernel: wlan0: encryption modes supported: WEP, WPA with
TKIP, WPA with AES/CCMP

I looked at the conf file it specifies above and some things were blank,
like:
SSID|
WEP|

So I also tried adding my settings and it made no difference.
