Bug Description

I'm using ndiswrapper for my realtek 818x card, the native linux module is r818x and works fine (except for some quirks with wifi security).
Since I'm using ndiswrapper I can't upload files (I can send any kind of info however) to any site (bugzilla, malone, flickr, etc).
I can send files via gaim file transfer however.

Don't know if the bug is in ndiswrapper but is my closest responsable for the problem.

Try to upload the same (large!) file via gaim and via firefox to see if it makes a difference (both after a reboot or reload of the module).

I can confirm this. I can't upload files and I'm unable to do some network operations like svn diff, log, ci.

Try the latest version of ndiswrapper (1.49rc1 at the time of this writing) and don't forget to do a sudo make uninstall before the sudo make install.

Are there .debs for 1.49? I'll try today to use the 1.49rc4 version

It still happens with the rc4 driver. How can we debug this?

Hi,

I'm also having this very same problem with large file uploads on Kubuntu 7.10.
Web browsing and small uploads work fine.

I can confirm it is related to ndiswrapper as I've tried different protocols (svn, ftp, http) and two different wireless USB adapters (TVISTO TVT-RWUSB54, VIVANCO 21283).

I'll be watching this issue so if you need more info about this please ask.
Thanks a lot for your help.

I manually upgraded to ndiswrapper-1.52 and the bug is GONE.

Solution how-to:
1. Download the latest tarball from http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net.
2. Optionally, uninstall your current (old) ndiswrapper-* packages. I didn't do it because ndiswrapper will "disable" them during installation.
3. tar xvzf ndiswrapper-1.52.tar.gz
4. cd ndiswrapper-1.52
5. sudo make uninstall
6. sudo make
7. sudo make install

are you sure? doesn't seem to be fixed here in hardy with kernel 2.6.24-5-generic.
I downloaded the latest ndis.

As ndiswrapper 1.52 is in LUM 2.6.24-7-generic this bug I'm gonna mark this as fixed.

Diego, update to 2.6.24-7 and it should be fixed. If not, reopen this bug.

It's not fixed in hardy's LUM.
davidmb could provide his .INF file so we can test with the same conditions.

If it isn't fixed in hardy. I suggest reporting this bug upstream. Instructions on how to do this can be found on http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/joomla/index.php?/component/option,com_openwiki/Itemid,33/id,bugs/
I suggest loading the debug-version of the driver with sudo insmod debug=0 and enabling debug before uploading a large file.

During the Intrepid development cycle the linux-ubuntu-modules package was merged with the linux kernel package. Going forward bugs should target the "linux" kernel package. I'm going to automatically migrate this bug forward. However, can you please confirm this is still an issue with the most recent Intrepid Ibex 8.10 release? Thanks.
