I have a strange problem with ndiswrapper apparently crashing periodically. This hangs my Internet connection, until I run:
sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
Then all is well, until it hangs again for some unknown reason. The frequency of the crashes is somewhat erratic, but generally varies between every one to two hours.
ndiswrapper version 1.58rc1.
$ ndiswrapper -v utils version: '1.9', utils version needed by module: '1.9' module details: filename: /lib/modules/3.5.0-22-generic/updates/dkms/ndiswrapper.ko version: 1.58rc1 vermagic: 3.5.0-22-generic SMP mod_unload modversions 686
I then proceeded to install the necessary Windows drivers for my wifi card, a Realtek RTL8190.
This setup works great, except for the occasional crash detailed above.
How would I go about diagnosing the problem?
I can't for the life of me find where
ndiswrapper logs its errors. I'm sure it's something simple, but I can't figure it out.
For now, I've created a script the modprobes
ndiswrapper as a temporary fix, but I'd really like to find a more permanent solution.
Any help is appreciated.
