    Default BT5_R2 & ndiswrapper-1.57 & 0457:0163 Silicon Integrated Systems chip Not working

    root@bt:~# uname -a
    Linux bt 3.2.6 #1 SMP Fri Feb 17 10:34:20 EST 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    I am running BackTrack 5 R2 64 Bit Gnome.

    lsusb output:
    Bus 002 Device 007: ID 0457:0163 Silicon Integrated Systems Corp. 802.11 Wireless LAN Adapter

    I have got the 64 bit driver from here:
    http://mrtenente.infosys.lt/blog/?p=26

    And following the instruction from here:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...er/Ndiswrapper

    I am trying this get this wifi dongle to work however failing to do so. Please see the steps I have taken to get it to work:

    I had installed ndiswrapper from Synaptic hence I am uninstalling that version and building it from source.

    Code:
    root@bt:~# modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    root@bt:~# apt-get --purge remove ndiswrapper-utils
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package ndiswrapper-utils is not installed, so not removed

    root@bt:~# rm -r /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper
    rm: cannot remove `/etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper': No such file or directory

    Building dependency tree

    linux-headers-3.2.6 is already the newest version.
    linux-headers-3.2.6 set to manually installed.

    root@bt:~# apt-get install dh-make fakeroot gcc-3.4 build-essential
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    fakeroot is already the newest version.
    fakeroot set to manually installed.
    E: Couldn't find package gcc-3.4
    Now gone inside the ndiswrapper directory (source) and run this command:

    Code:
    root@bt:~/Desktop/Ndis/ndiswrapper-1.57# make uninstall
    rm -f /usr/share/man/man8/ndiswrapper.8

    Now moving to the Vista 64 driver folder:

    Code:

    root@bt:~# iwconfig does not show the new interface and the light in the usb dongle does not light up. Please note this vista driver works in my WIN7_64bit box.

    I've never had too much luck with the NDIS wrapper. I would search to see if there are any compat wireless drivers out there for linux or would just bite the bullet and get an alfa usb apapter from ebay/amazon for ~$20
