      Hi,

      I'm still not out of the problem ...

      I installed the ndiswrapper. Because I'm not that familiar with compiling source-code, I choose the ndiswrapper build-in in Ubuntu Dapper-Drake. I hope this version is the most recent : Ver. 1.8-0ubuntu2.

      From there on, with the drivers dowloaded as listed on http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/List, it was no problem to install the driver. When I check the installation with the command :

          sudo ndiswrapper -l

      it reports :

          "driver present, hardware present"

      So far, so good (I guess). But at the next step to load the ndiswrapper module, I get an error :

          sudo modprobe ndwiswrapper

      the machine reports : cannot find file 'ndiswrapper.ko' in /lib/modules/2.6.15-26-386/kernel/drivers.net/ndiswrapper (or something like that ...)

      If I verify that, I can find the file 'ndiswrapper.ko' in the original kernel folder 2.6.15-23-386. So I booted into the old kernel, and I didn't receive the error. However, even if I boot in this older Kernel, my Wifi card doesn't come up ...

      Proberly, I still have to configuere something. But "WHAT" ?

      Welcome to the world of Linux. Some manufactures do not support the
      open source world well, but Linux as adjusted to this with wonderful
      programs like ndiswrapper. This program uses the windows drivers to
      operate the hardware. Someone wrote up instructions for installing
      this driver on Ubuntu 6.06 here;
      http://striz. org/linux/ laptop-wifi- install.txt

      There are other howto's for installing ndiswrapper, but this is the
      first one that google listed. Google is very good at finding solution
      like this. I just searched for "Wireless 1390 WLAN linux" and got
      lots of results. You can find many answers to most questions this
      way, and most of the time the answers work.

      I hope that helps, and don't be afraid to ask here again, I just
      included the search tips since that is usually faster.

        I am not that experienced with ndiswrapper, I usually spent the time
        compiling the Linux driver, but that is now in the kernel. The Intel
        chipset only needs the firmware from http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/
        copied to the proper folder to enable the native Linux drive to work.
        It can't be distributed with the rest of Ubuntu due to licensing.
        That is assuming it is the ipw2200, but the D600-610 used that, I
        assume it is the same.

        I no longer have a Dell laptop so I can't help much more, sorry.

          Anytime you compile a module in a particular kernel, if you change kernels the old module won't work. Many modules and kernels are particular about which kernel the module was compiled with. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense on the surface. For what it's worth, on my Slackware system, I just upgraded to the 2.6.16.27 kernel, and it worked right away without ndiswrapper or linuxant. Sure surprised me!

          So, if you change the kernel, you may need to rebuild a number of custom modules. Also, be prepared for a situation in which the most recent version of a module or program doesn't work. Always check the notes/FAQs for any hints of this. That's for both the kernel and the module.

          Best of luck. --Douglas

            David Rumptz Here I have a Dell e1505 Laptop I run

            Hardware
            * Intel Centrino Duo Processor T2300 (1,66 GHz)

            Anyway I have the same problem with the wirless card
            not being read but I have tried to download everything
            from Surgeforce and I have had several problems with
            installing the devices. The main problem is that the
            drivers expect to see files in certain places that
            (K)Ubuntu does not follow. I had tried to load the
            drivers and was going to put a bunch of sysm links in
            the places that the drivers expected to see things and
            just gave up.

            SO I am not sure what I am going to do next. I am
            reading and reading and thinking of moving over to
            Slakeware. I have a bunch of friends into Slack but I
            am really a Debian person ( but Etch is way to Alpha
            to run right now with the X.org not loading correctly
            and all)

            So in the end I would like some advice from the
            group...

            What is the best Linux Distro to run a Dell Laptop
            (e1505 specifically) ?

            I can download antything and burn a copy on my laptop.


            I have tried Debian Sarge( too slow), debian Etch
            (X.org does not load so all command line), Ubuntu,
            Kubuntu, Free BSD (same X.org problems that Debian
            Etch has) and Arc Linux(did nto boot from CD)

            I was thinking of Slackware or Gentoo next...Any
            ideas.

            I want a Linux Distro that supports most of the stuff
            I do not mind recompiling or any of the rest of that
            stuff I am ok with that butI want it to not drive me
            crazy at the same time.

            it was no problem to install the driver. When I check
            the installation with the command :

            sudo ndiswrapper -l

            it reports :

            "driver present, hardware present"

            So far, so good (I guess). But at the next step to
            load the ndiswrapper module, I get an error :

            sudo modprobe ndwiswrapper

            the machine reports : cannot find file
            'ndiswrapper.ko' in
            /lib/modules/2.6.15-26-386/kernel/drivers.net/ndiswrapper
            (or something like that ...)

            If I verify that, I can find the file 'ndiswrapper.ko'
            in the original kernel folder 2.6.15-23-386. So I
            booted into the old kernel, and I didn't receive the
            error. However, even if I boot in this older Kernel,
            my Wifi card doesn't come up ...

            Proberly, I still have to configuere something. But
            "WHAT" ?

            support for Dell Latitude D620


            Welcome to the world of Linux. Some manufactures do
            not support the
            open source world well, but Linux as adjusted to this
            with wonderful
            programs like ndiswrapper. This program uses the
            windows drivers to
            operate the hardware. Someone wrote up instructions
            for installing
            this driver on Ubuntu 6.06 here;
            http://striz.org/linux/laptop-wifi-install.txt

            There are other howto's for installing ndiswrapper,
            but this is the
            first one that google listed. Google is very good at
            finding solution
            like this. I just searched for "Wireless 1390 WLAN
            linux" and got
            lots of results. You can find many answers to most
            questions this
            way, and most of the time the answers work.

            I hope that helps, and don't be afraid to ask here
            again, I just
            included the search tips since that is usually faster.

            I installed the ndiswrapper. Because I'm not that
            familiar with compiling source-code, I choose the
            ndiswrapper build-in in Ubuntu Dapper-Drake. I hope

              Just a very quick reply here. I would try recompiling the kernel as a 486. It might run a little slower, but Im not sure a 686 cpu is correct. My i8600 is a Pentium M; if I compile with a Pentium M+, it fails to boot just like yours. Stepping down your processor can avoid problems. If after stepping down the processor allows the computer to boot, you can step it up again slowly till it fails to boot again. Again, I only suggest this because the boot problem seems similar to problems I've had in the past trying to use the wrong processor type. Actually, some distros assume a 686 or pentium 4 processor. Good luck. --Douglas

              Oh, looking at your processor, you should probably be using one of the centrino options. When you do "make menuconfig", look carefully at the options for processor types.

                The first thing to do is install "linux-headers-2.6.15-26" via Synaptic or apt-get.  This will give you the modules you need for the current kernel. 

                Then you should be able to modprobe with the newer kernel booted.

                    I am not that experienced with ndiswrapper, I usually spent the time
                    compiling the Linux driver, but that is now in the kernel. The Intel
                    chipset only needs the firmware from http://ipw2200. sourceforge. net/
                    copied to the proper folder to enable the native Linux drive to work.
                    It can't be distributed with the rest of Ubuntu due to licensing.
                    That is assuming it is the ipw2200, but the D600-610 used that, I
                    assume it is the same.

                    I no longer have a Dell laptop so I can't help much more, sorry.
