Bug Description

I use use ndiswrapper at the same time has the nvidia driver. Everything work fine for something like 20 minutes. Then, the wifi card just stops working.

Here are the related loggings:

I tried to boot with the irqpool "option" without success. I also tried many other ACPM option that changed nothing. I discovered that if I reverted my xorg driver from the driver "nvidia" to "nv", the wifi card now works ok. But I loose my 3D. Somebody on the ubuntuforums threads said that using a 386 kernel instead of a 686 one was also working. But then, my Intel Core Duo is no more a Duo.

i followed those instructions to have my BCM1390M wifi card working on my Dell
D620 working: http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=193350

I first upgraded to the last version of ndiswrapper and installed the windows driver. Everything works fine but.. only for less then half an hour.

Nothing yet. :-(

You should say in the bug that you reproduced it.

here is the relevant part of my dmesg, but it's really the same, everything is the same. I googled like crazy, but to no avail - no one seems to have this fiigured out at all. The only solution I have found so far is to disable the nvidia driver - note that I had the nvidia linux driver installed. I hope it'll work!

Thanks for keeping me updated on this!

I'm seeing the same issue-wireless works for a while, then shuts down. I have a Dell D620 with the Broadcom 4311, using the 686 kernel and nvidia driver. I also added the line:

blacklist bcm43xx

to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist in case there was a conflict with the native Broadcom driver, which doesn't yet work with this chip, but that didn't help. TIA for any help!

Here is the dmesg output:

I may have found at least a workaround. After posting my earlier comment, I found the Ndiswrapper FAQ (http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/FAQ) which suggested disabling ACPI irq routing with the boot commandline parameter acpi=noirq. I did that and my wireless has now stayed up for over 2 hours!

I haven't see any ill effects, but I haven't looked hard either.

Here is my dmesg output with acpi=noirq:

Note the last line, which occurred a while after boot--the same time when I was losing wireless connectivity before.

Following up further, it appears that the acpi=noirq option is NOT a workaround. My connection stayed up the first few times I tried it, but since it seems to fail after about the same period of time.

Sorry for the false lead!

Please let me know if theres any way I can help. I am more than willing to arrange a time to sit down on IRC or something and hammer this out the manual way with someone ;). Just get in touch with me through any one of the ways on my launchpad page.

Unfortunetly, I have tried bcm43xx and have had no luck getting it to work. Part of the issue might be me trying it under edgy. But NetworkManager has no luck with getting any response from the network interface when it is enabled using bcm43xx.

If there is a more explicit howto I should follow, please let me know, I am more than willing to try most anything.

I have read on other forums, it is a clash of nvidia driver and wifi. I do not want to use the nv driver as the performance of the graphic card with this driver is soooo bad....

I've got a Dell D620 with this card, and I'm unclear as to what the "Ubuntu-endorsed" way is to get the card to work with Edgy (the instructions above are for Dapper). Are the same? I've been through what feels like hundreds of "How-Tos" at this point, and some have the prerequisite of "start with a fresh installation, since other competing how tos may have hosed your configuration." I'm going to clone my partitions, but reloading them before each "how to" is a nightmare, so I'm looking for the how to with Ubuntu's stamp of approval.

After much trial and error, I have my 4311 working with ndiswrapper, no problems. (I don't have any nvidia, but thought I'd still post a bit here.)

I am running the 2.6.17-10-generic x86_64 kernel, ndiswrapper version 1.27 (downloaded from Sourceforge, and newer than the version in Edgy's repositories), and a driver downloaded from HP. My Dell 1390 wireless card now works on my E1405 laptop. A meandering HOWTO is here: http://wiki.waningsun.net/index.php?title=Dell_E1405_%26_Linux_HOWTO#ndiswrapper.2C_fixed.21

Jamie: You should be able to load and unload modules without re-installing your system, so don't worry about re-installing every time you change something!

Yes, with the original graphic card driver, things work fine. the problem occurs with the proprietary nvidia driver...

It's rejected because we can't fix bugs related to proprietary drivers. One being a windows NDIS driver, and the other being a proprietary nvidia driver.

But there is a broadcom free driver and they are working on the cards which

Ok, it is the conflict of two drivers. I guess in principle any two drivers can have the same irq#. Shouldn't there be a way how to change it? There are devices that can have irq# changed...

Who is responsible for it? Shall we better contact nVidia or Broadcom or guys developing ndiswrapper?

How come that nvidia driver and the same broadcom driver in XP do not have this problem?

I can confirm this bug with my HP dv6000 series computer. Note that this is not ubuntu specific. Some people argue it is on the bios and/or kernel level. And some other people the issue (specifically for ndiswrapper and nvidia) has been / will be resolved in 2.16.19 linux kernel.

Note that this issue is not a bug in 64 bit kernels. With 64 bit kernel on AMD you can make ndiswrapper and nvidia working together without a workaround. But this does not elminates the probem for 32 bits.

While rejecting this bug is sensible (since it is not ubuntu specific) I would expect developers to take the initiative and offer a solution for users. Or contacting with nvidia , linux kernel, or ndiswrappers and acknowleding about the issue would be a great step. Because wide range of laptop users are affected from this issue.

1) Stop gdm from starting on boot:
update-rc.d -f gdm remove
2) Make your kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst look like this "kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.19 root=/dev/sda2 irqpoll pci=routeirq ro"
3) Once your computer boots, login (remember, gdm isnt going to load)
4) sudo rmmod bcm43xx ehci_hcd ohci_hcd sdhci mmc_core ieee80211softmac ieee80211 ieee80211_crypt
5) modprobe nvidia
6) modprobe ndiswrapper
7) use iwconfig and ifconfig to get your network up
8) Start up gdm "/etc/init.d/gdm start"
9) Have some fun. Yes, this leaves you without USB support, so that might not work for some people.

This works for me, using an hp pavilion dv6000 (dv1650us), which is turion dual 64bit processors). It may work for other systems.

1) Install latest nvidia drivers from their website in linux.
1.1) Download the drivers for linux from the nvidia website.
1.2) right-click on the downloaded file: go to properties: Permissions tab: make executable.
1.3) You may have to run it in a terminal using ctrl-alt-f1 (ctrl-alt-f7 to get back), and do "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop; sudo rmmod nvidia" beforehand.

2) Boot into windows, go to the hp (or whoever your manufacturer is) website, grab the most recent bios update. Install it.

3) Boot into linux and be happy.

Worked for me.

About nvidia 9746 driver: this is no different of 9131 except that it supports the newest 8800 series cards, so it should make no difference between 9131 and 9746.

Iooking at my dmesg I see that this is more likely bug to be related to smp (I have dual core cpu). I havent tried it with kernel 2.6.20 but hopefully it will have been fixed as it did for papay and others.

Adding "nosmp" to kernel parameters seems to have done it for me. Works just fine and I am using ndiswrapper right now.

I would really like to know now, to ensure that this is smp related (and not only in my case) that if you have smp systems as well, and if nosmp helps you also.

I have tested both with smp and without smp support in my kernel and I
experience the problem both ways. I've tried driver arguments in my
xorg.conf, various kernel args at boot time, several different
versions of the nvidia driver, and the only think that worked (kind
of) was not running both the nvidia driver and and the broadcom
(ndiswrapper) driver at the same time. I can use one of either but
not both at the same time. (nv instead of nvidia driver is my
preferred way to go because the last time I tested it, the broadcom
driver in the kernel only allowed 802.11b for my particular 802.11g
card ( "Dell D820/Broadcom Corporation BCM4310 UART (rev 01)" ).

I gotta say that I plainly hate Broadcom for being so damn anti Linux and uncooperative.. Hopefully the reverse engineered driver for Linux gets bugsfree (it works right now but has power issues = speed is below 60kb/s)

I agree (sort of). I upgraded to feisty herd2 (which uses the 2.6.20
kernel) the other day and I no longer get the IRQ problems. The
wireless works as it did for me with the old kernel when I used the nv
driver instead of nvidia. I don't notice any difference regarding my
proximity to the access point.

The txpower bug is fixed! full speed with bcm4311 and bcm4312! No need for ndiswrapper anymore.

This is what you need.
kernel 2.6.20 and 2 patches:

ftp://lwfinger.dynalias.org/patches/2.6.20_combined
this one fixes :

So far the fix is to use a more current version of the kernel. I

Thats right, I think this could be marked as fixed upstream, however, remember, the kernel isn't official yet, and even though were getting pretty close to a release, don't use it if unless your aware of the fun that comes with untested/development kernels.

On a similar note, bcm43xx support is significantly better for the 4311 series cards in Feisty, and you probably will find yourself content with that as opposed to ndiswrapper...

I'm not totally sure but that wasn't the error I was getting related

I am understanding that you have the bcm4306, if so you dont need
ndiswrapper and can use the bcm43xx module from the 2.6.20.1 kernel.

Hello hello,

So this did work with the ndiswrapper. Thanks everyone for your help. I feel like a big idiot because my problem was that my wireless adapter was shutoff (function F2 must have been hit). Anyway works like a charm, thanks all.

I'm not sure if this is related or not, but would someone be able to look at the following crash I get about 50% of the time when I boot my Dell D620 with Ubuntu Feisty 64-BIT, Ndiswrapper and the Dell WLAN 1490. I notice that during boot, if the WiFI LED on the laptop doesn't light up, this error occurs. If I reboot, the LED will light up and everything is fine. Not sure what is causing it. Only thing I can think of is maybe the Dell driver I'm using with NDISWRAPPER doesn't like 64-bit OSes

FYI,

Just discovered NDISWRAPPER v1.44 was recently released and resolves an issue with 64-bit systems with a gig or more of RAM and Broadcom adapters. That matches perfectly! :P

Just updated and so far it worked - only booted once.

Just to close the loop, it looks like Ndiswrapper Version 1.44 corrected my issue.
