Install usb wifi Netgear WNDA3100v3

Post by cldjean » Thu Jul 06, 2017 12:21 pm

Hello,

I want to install an usb wireless Netgear WNDA3100v3 on my Computer HP Compaq 6510b running with Linux Mint 18.1.

I followed the HOWTO: Netgear WNA3100 wireless adapter on LMDE (64-bit) on this forum. But I can't go further than step 7 because I don't know how to find the compatible drivers with the Ndiswrapper 1.61 which is the last version of Ndiswrapper.

Can someone help me to find this drivers and to complete the installation ?

Thanks you.

Aren't "linux-headers-generic" only for Ubuntu? Anyway, I find that installing module-assistant and running its "m-a prepare" command as sysadmin installs that is needed for the running kernel to build drivers.

You could be correct about this, and any assistance installing the source code from the github site is appreciated

Ok, what about results for

ndiswrapper -l
Right now ndiswrapper is conflicting with the newly installed module

After having completed the two first steps I've rebooted the computer 2 times. But it crashed 2 times.
After unplugging usb wireless, the computer started well.
Then I plugged in the usb wireless.
Here are the results of the last step.

Does the button on the computer enable wifi? You may have to reset BIOS to default

Yes the button on the computer enables the wifi. Do you want me to enable wifi ?

In fact, I want to install an usb wireless because my computer wifi is not stable. Many times the computer wifi crashes and I have to reboot the computer to get wifi for twenty or thirty minutes, and then rebooting once again.

I can enable computer wifi with the extern button. Should I ?

You should be able to disable the internal with

Code: Select all

echo "blacklist iwl3945" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/iwl3945.conf
Reboot and enable wifi using the button
