    Default ndiswrapper instalation of usb tp-link wn620g

    Soooooooooo. seeing as this is really not a linux/slax problem forum i am truly sorry for yet another post that hardly has anything to do with backtrack , other than the fact that i am wanting to use this usb card with it.
    figured it was cheaper to get a usb card to use in building a wok style antenna or soup can deal ? not for wep cracking or anything just for better signal in my garage. anywho , my problem falls after ndiswrapper corectly installs my drivers

    Code:
    bt tplink # ndiswrapper -l
    athfmwdl : driver installed
            device (0CF3:0002) present
    net5523 : driver installed
            device (0CF3:0002) present
    then checking in iwconfig and or ifconfig shows nothing new
    so i did a
    Code:
    bt tplink # lsusb
    Bus 3 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 1 Device 5: ID 0cf3:0002 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5523 (no firmware)
    Bus 1 Device 2: ID 05dc:a731 Lexar Media, Inc.
    Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 2 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
    could be a (no firmware) problem ?
    then in dmsg i get the following "everything ndiswrapper "

    Code:
     ndiswrapper version 1.44 loaded (smp=yes)
    usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper
    usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
    usb 1-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    usb 1-5: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
    ndiswrapper: driver athfmwdl (,12/05/2003,1.00.001) loaded
    ndiswrapper (ZwQueryValueKey:2351): not fully implemented (yet)
    usb 1-5: USB disconnect, address 4
    usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
    usb 1-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    usb 1-5: reset high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5
    ndiswrapper: driver athfmwdl (,12/05/2003,1.00.001) loaded
    ndiswrapper (ZwQueryValueKey:2351): not fully implemented (yet)
    noticed the last part of that saying not fully implemented (yet)
    cannot find anywhere what that means
    also this card is reported working in ubuntu and deb. tho , off the
    inux-wless.passys site it says this card is a no go marked with a RED.
    So anyone know what would make the not fully implemented (yet) line is all about and or if theres a way for it to say
    "ndiswrapper (ZwQueryValueKey:2351): fully implemented (now)" ?
    Searching result's in not much from any angle i choose
    i may be kicking a dead horse with this
    but i think its cheaper then getting pigtails,external ant. and rerouting one of the 2 connectors from my laptops wifi card out the pcmcia slot

    thanks for any replies guys!!
    and GO STEELERS

    It is missing a firmware module which is in either a sys file somewhere that you haven't copied or its embedded into some big driver blob which there's no way ndiswrapper can access.

    Either way its a waste of time and effort.

    Hello Nlantz.
    I was having the same problem, so i decided to start over:

    Went to Xp and got **.inf from C:\Windows\Inf\
    and ***.sys, ***.bin from C:\Windows\System32\drivers

    Then, got ndiswrapper from SourceForge.net in .tar.gz

    Typing in terminal ("//" used for comments):

    tar xvf ndiswrapper*.tar.gz
    cd ndiswrapper*
    make
    su
    make install

    ndiswrapper -i /usr/windrv/**.inf

    ndiswrapper -l
    // must tell that 'device is present' when the device is connected, otherwise only tell 'driver installed'
    // if device is connected and this command doesn't print 'device present',
    // use the comand: ndiswrapper -d xxxx:xxxx <***>
    // *** is the name of the driver and xxxx:xxxx is the ID of device (diferent of USB port ID). Get it with command: lsusb

    depmod -a

    ndiswrapper -m

    modprobe ndiswrapper

    echo ndiswrapper >> /etc/modules

    iwlist wlan0 scan

    ////////// END ///////////////

    Now, i don't know how to play with my Atheros sub-362 Engenius USB WLAN. It doesn't support monitoring mode.
    :-(

    If for some reason the device stop appearing, try:
    modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    // plug-in the device
    modprobe ndiswrapper

    Here's something I found that might help

    By the way, is your signature meant to be ironic?
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".
