Bug Description

Driver for Netgear WPN111 which is Atheros based usb card is not recongnised in Gutsy i386 - Tribe 6

If I install driver for WPN111 using 'Windows Wireless Tools' or ndiswrapper command line, the device works fine, but on every reboot I need to modprobe ndissswrapper to get device to be seen. The Windows Wireless tool should add ndisswrapper to the /etc/modules but doesnt.

This isn't a bug in ndiswrapper. sudo ndiswrapper -ma should solve your problem. Adding this function to ndisgtk (shouldn't be automatically done, though) might be worth a consideration.

I changed the command to call ndiswrapper -ma instead of ndiswrapper -m.
