Configuring WiFi with Ndiswrapper on Debian

leave a comment »

Note :- If you want the way to make ndiswrapper work just skip the first paragraph its total crap

Well as i have a Broadcom BCM4312 on my HP 6515b laptop, i face a lot of problems with WiFi and the only solution that i know of is using ndiswrapper with makes the windows driver work on Linux, anyway i installed Debian on my laptop around 1 month ago and then never looked back at it, ya i love Fedora, so yesterday when i rebooted my laptop after around a week i saw the Debian entry on my grub i booted into it and tried to connect to the WiFi network which reminded me that i have not configured ndiswrapper and as i have all 3 DVD’s of Debian with me i was sure it wont be a problem, but it didnt work and i was left wondering what now, and i started searching the DVD for any other package then i thought ok lets try to build the driver and there i was with a working net in just 5 min

Ok so lets start, you need module-assistant as you have to build the ndiswrapper from the source saperately, so type
apt-get install module-assistant
then prepare the build environment
module-assistant prepare
this will download the kernel-header and setup the symbolic links, now install the ndiswrapper-source package
apt-get install ndiswrapper-source
if you have internet access only via WiFi the download the packages from http://packages.debian.org and then install them, next build ndiswrapper
module-assistant build ndiswrapper
now type
apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
now you are ready to install the drivers for that follow this enjoy

Enabling Wifi on Lenovo R60 in Linux

with one comment

So yesterday after hunting for the solution of the wifi problem in Lenovo R60 so quite sometime i finally decided to try DJays solution to build Madwifi and it worked like a charm. I was thinking that there will be a total Open Source solution of the problem but well i just hope that ath5k will replace madwifi soon, anyway here is something about MadWifi

MadWifi is one of the most advanced WLAN drivers available for Linux today. It is stable and has an established userbase. The driver itself is open source but depends on the proprietary Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) that is available in binary form only.

Ok so lets start, first you need to download the source of Madwifi, go to http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/GettingMadwifi and download tar.gz source package, extract it now open a terminal and login as root by typing su or sudo -i, then goto the madwifi directory and type
cd scripts
./find-madwifi-modules.sh $(uname -r)
cd ..

now you are ready to compile
make
now to install type
make install
Now load the module
/sbin/modprobe ath_pci
now you can easily connect to the net on your Lenovo R60 lappy
To enable the wifi led just edit /etc/sysctl.conf, type
gedit /etc/sysctl.conf
and add this at the end of the file and save
dev.wifi0.ledpin=1
dev.wifi0.softled=1

reboot and thats it enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

with 7 comments

PAMP on Nokia E61i

PAMP, an S60 Powered Apache Web Server with PHP and MySQL is available for the S60 3rd edition phones, imagine running a WEB Server on your phone, i saw a few days ago and as i had a supported phone Nokia E61i i was well happy. The supported phone are Nokia E90, Nokia N95 8GB these have 128MB RAM and Nokaia N95 and Nokia E61i with 64MB RAM, well i guess PAMP should run on any S60 3rd Edition device as long as it has 64 MB of ram. The Installation is Simple just download the pamp_with_htdocs_on_c.zip or pamp_with_htdocs_on_e.zip depending on where you want your servers root to be. Unzip the file and you will have

  • pips_s60_1_2_SS.sis
  • openc_ssl.sis
  • PythonForS60_1_4_1_3rdEd.sis
  • PythonScriptShell_1_4_1_3rdEd.sis
  • pamp_with_htdocs_on_...sisx

transfer them to your cell and install them, after the install you will find pamp and connector in your phone menu, click pamp. then start pamp from [Options]->[Start]->[Pamp], when you see Apache and Mysql running, open your phone browser and goto 127.0.0.1, you will be greeted with a page that says IT WORKS….. congratulations now you have a web server running on your phone for more configuration options you can check the nokia wiki http://wiki.opensource.nokia.com/projects/PAMP enjoy!!!!!!!!!
