Default wireless problem using linux driver

I tried using Vista x86 and x64 drivers with ndiswrapper. Neither
appeared to work.I thought I had to use ndiswrapper, but as I was
browsing around the web to find the windows driver, I found a linux
driver, so I began to follow the directons, but got stuck while
running a command didn't work. I have no experience with wireless in
Linux.

RTL8185 Linux Driver v1027.0823.2007 for linux kernel 2.6

- Support Client mode for either infrastructure or adhoc mode
- Support WEP and WPAPSK/WPA2PSK connection

================================================== =============================================
< Component >
The driver is composed of several parts:
(1)source code
rtl8185.tar.gz
stack.tar.gz

(2)Script ot build the modules
makedrv

(3)Script to load/unload modules
wlan0up
wlan0down

(4)Script and configuration for DHCP
wlan0dhcp
ifcfg-wlan0

(5)Supplicant source code
wpa_supplicant-0.4.9.tar.gz

(6)Example of supplicant configuration file
wpa1.conf




< Installation >
Running the scripts can finish all operations of building up modules
from source code and start the nic:

(1)Build up the driver from the source code
./makedrv

(2)Load the driver module to kernel and start up nic
./wlan0up
(if "insmod: error inserting 'r8180.ko': -File exists." met,
./wlan0rmv
./wlan0down
./wlan0up
should be OK.
)
(3)Refer to < Set wireless lan MIBs > to set Wireless LAN
specific parameters.





< Set wireless lan MIBs >
This driver uses Wireless Extension as an interface allowing you to set
Wireless LAN specific parameters.

Current driver supports "iwlist" to show the device status of nic

iwlist wlan0 [parameters]
where

parameter explaination [parameters]
----------------------- -------------
Show available chan and freq freq / channel
Show and Scan BSS and IBSS scan[ning]
Show supported bit-rate rate / bit[rate]
Show Power Management mode power

For example:

iwlist wlan0 channel
iwlist wlan0 scan
iwlist wlan0 rate
iwlist wlan0 power


Driver also supports "iwconfig", manipulate driver private ioctls, to set MIBs.

iwconfig wlan0 [parameters] [val]
where

parameter explaination [parameters] [val]
constraints
----------------------- -------------
------------------
Connect to AP by address ap [essid]
Set the essid, join (I)BSS essid [mac_addr]
Set operation mode mode {Managed|Ad-hoc}
Set keys and security mode key / enc[ryption]
{N|open|restricted|off}


For example:

iwconfig wlan0 ap XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
iwconfig wlan0 essid "ap_name"
iwconfig wlan0 mode Ad-hoc
iwconfig wlan0 mode essid "name" mode Ad-hoc
iwconfig wlan0 key 0123456789 [2] open
iwconfig wlan0 key off
iwconfig wlan0 key restricted [3] 0123456789

< Getting IP address >
After start up the nic, the network needs to obtain an IP address
before transmit/receive data.
This can be done by setting the static IP via "ifconfig wlan0
IP_ADDRESS" command, or using DHCP.

If using DHCP, setting steps is as below:

(1)connect to an AP via "iwconfig" settings
iwconfig wlan0 essid [name] or
iwconfig wlan0 ap XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

(2)run the script which run the dhclient
./wlan0dhcp
or
dhcpcd wlan0
(Some network admins require that you use the
hostname and domainname provided by the DHCP server.
In that case, use
dhcpcd -HD wlan0)



< WPAPSK >
WPA_SUPPLICANT help the network to communicate under the protection of
WPAPSK mechanism

(1)Unpack source code of WPA supplicant:
tar -zxvf wpa_supplicant-0.4.9.tar.gz
cd wpa_supplicant-0.4.9

(2)Create .config file:
cp defconfig .config

(3)Edit .config file, uncomment the following line:
#CONFIG_DRIVER_IPW=y.

(4)Build WPA supplicant:
make

If make error for lack of <include/md5.h>, install the openssl lib:
1. Install the openssl lib from corresponding installation disc:
Fedora Core 2/3/4/5/6/7(openssl-0.9.71x-xx),
Mandrake10.2/Mandriva10.2(openssl-0.9.7x-xmdk),
Debian 3.1(libssl-dev), Suse 9.3/10.0/10.1(openssl_devl),
Gentoo(dev-libs/openssl), etc.
2. Download the openssl open source package from
www.openssl.org, build and install it.

(5)Edit wpa_supplicant.conf to set up SSID and its passphrase.
For example, the following setting in "wpa1.conf" means SSID
to join is "BufAG54_Ch6"
and its passphrase is "87654321".

network={
ssid="BufAG54_Ch6"
proto=WPA
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP TKIP
group=CCMP TKIP WEP104 WEP40
psk="87654321"
priority=2
}
Note: 1. proto=WPA for WPA, proto=RSN for WPA2.
2. If you want to connect an AP which works under WPA2
mixed mode, you'd better
use Realtek customed wpa_supplicant package.


(6)Execute WPA supplicant (Assume 8185 and related modules had
been loaded):
./wpa_supplicant -D ipw -c wpa1.conf -i wlan0 &

Why does it say wlan0, no such device? I appended this to my
/etc/network/interfaces

iface wlan0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0

and I restarted the networking service.

And it didn't occur to you to just try:

# sudo modprobe r8180

?

You seem to have gone to an awful lot of effort to compile a driver that I
see on my own system. Perhaps, the version you compiled works for hardware
that the installed driver doesn't, but the first option would have to be to
try the one that you already have.

Look what a mess you made, because you top posted to Dereks reply.
In your first mail with this huge amount of text there can be found
evidence for the fact that you made your own kernel and have lost
the r8180 module on this way. 'apt-file search r8180.ko' will show you
that the module is part of the module packages for the stock kernels.

Sorry, I should at least have checked which version of Ubuntu you were
running.

It _is_ part of Gutsy, in the package
linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.22-14-generic.

It would be well worth the upgrade...

Well, I was into the Christmas spirit, and didn't mention that... :-)

Right. Of course. So there's no harm to be had in reinstalling the
appropriate modules package, Chris, and then give it a try.
