Installation ctx 405 under SuSE 9.3 (kernel 2.6)
Requirements:
- packet kernel-sources (adequate to your kernel version)
- packet gcc
- packet make
- packet dhcp-client
- packet wireless-tools
- windows xp drivers for ctx405 (version 2.1.5.0 or 2.1.14.0 or higher)
- ndiswrapper-0.12.tar.gz (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/) or
higher --> always use the newest ndiswrapper
Installation:
1. the card is recognized as „Creatix Polymedia ISL3886 (Prism Javelin/Prism
Xbow)“ and configured with prism54 driver ? This does not function! ? Do
not configure the card with YaST. If the card is configured delete the
configuration!
2. Unload the modules prism54 and firmware_class with the command
rmmod prism54 and rmmod firmware_class in the console.
3. copy the windows xp driver (unzipped) on the hard disk (notice in which
directory!) for example into /home
4. copy ndiswrapper-0.12.tar.gz into the directory /usr/src.
5. unzip with gzip –cd ndiswrapper-0.12.tar.gz | tar xf –
6. cd ndiswrapper-0.12
7. make install (see advice 2)
8. ndiswrapper –i [/path to inf-file of the windows xp drivers]
(f.e. ndiswrapper –i /home/ctx405/PRISMA00.inf)
9. ndiswrapper –l to check the installed driver
10.modprobe ndiswrapper (for loading module)
11.check with dmesg if the module is loaded correctly (see advice 1)
12.check with iwconfig which number the card got (wlan0 or wlan1). You can
configure the card with iwconfig and ifconfig to test the connection but this is
not permanent because the module is not started next restart.
13.Now set the correct module for the this card with YaST – Network devices –
network card under advanced – hardware details. Don’t forget to set the
router IP and DHCP.
14.now the module will be automatically started after restart.
The configuration of the card will be made by YaST (/ect/sysconfig/network/ifcfgwlanx)
or the wireless tools iwconfig and ifconfig. To use this commands refer your
linux manual.
For using WPA look at the special instruction guide “WPA under Linux”.
Advices:
1. If dmesg always shows “ndiswrapper version 0.6 + VCS loaded” although
the newest version is installed, so please check:
a) is the SuSE ndiswrapper packet installed? ? delete it.
b) is there a file called ndiswrapper.ko (2004-04-07) in the folder
/lib/modules/2.6.4-52-default/extra? So please delete this because the newest
ndiswrapper.ko can be found in /lib/modules/2.6.4-52-default/misc. After this
you have to compile the ndiswrapper again (make install).

Installation ctx 405 in Mandriva 2006 (kernel 2.6.x)
(2005-12-23)
Requirements:
- packet kernel-sources (adequate to your kernel version)
- packet dhcp-client
- packet wireless-tools
- windows xp drivers for ctx405 (version 2.1.5.0 or 2.1.14.0)
- ndiswrapper-1.7.tar.gz (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/)
Installation:
1. This card is recognized as a Prism card but this driver will not function
because there is no firmware available for this card to use with prism54. So
unload the driver by the commands
rmmod prism54
rmmod firmware_class.
2. Check the file /etc/modprobe.conf and delete the entry of prism54.
3. Copy the windows xp driver (unzipped) on the hard disk (notice in which
directory!) for example into /home
4. copy ndiswrapper-1.7.tar.gz into the directory /usr/src.
5. unzip with gzip –cd ndiswrapper-1.7.tar.gz | tar xf –
6. cd ndiswrapper-1.7
7. make uninstall
8. make
9. make install
10.ndiswrapper –i [/path to inf-file of the windows xp drivers]
(f.e. ndiswrapper –i /home/ctx405/PRISMA00.inf)
11.check with ndiswrapper –l if the driver is installed.
12.modprobe ndiswrapper (for loading module)
13.check with dmesg if ndiswrapper is loaded correctly.
14.ndiswrapper –m to do the entry in /etc/modprobe.conf and start ndiswrapper
every time starting the PC.
15.configure the card in MCC but do not use the shown card with Intersil.. but the
point “using Windows drivers with ndiswrapper”.
16.Now the card should function ( tested without encryption and WEP128).
For using WPA look at the special instruction guide “WPA under Linux”.

WPA under Linux with NDISWRAPPER (using ctx 405)
2005-12-23
Requirements:
- wpa_supplicant-0.4.7.tar.gz (http://hostap.epitest.fi/wpa_supplicant/)
- installed ndiswrapper with Windows XP-driver (able to make WPA) for your
WLAN-card
- the card is configured in the Control Center / YAST without any encryption.
Installation:
- be sure that the module ndiswrapper is installed and functions.
- The module ndiswrapper has to recognize the Windows XP driver as able to
use WPA. Check with dmesg if (for example!):
ndiswrapper version 1.7 loaded
ndiswrapper: driver prisma00.sys added
ndiswrapper: using irq 10
wlan0: ndiswrapper ethernet device 00:07:ca:02:d2:51 using driver
prisma00.sys
ndiswrapper device wlan0 supports WPA with AES/CCMP and TKIP
ciphers
- Unzip the file wpa_supplicant-0.4.7.tar.gz with the command (you have to
work as root!):
gzip –cd wpa_supplicant-0.4.7.tar.gz | tar xf –
- Change into the new directory wpa_supplicant-0.4.7 and create a new file
.config:
CONFIG_DRIVER_NDISWRAPPER=y
- Compile the driver with make
- Copy the files wpa_supplicant, wpa_passphrase and wpa_cli into a
directory set in $PATH i.e. into /usr/local/bin.
- Create a file wpa_supplicant.conf ( wherever you want but you have to set at
starting wpa). The following example is for using a normal wpa connection to a
router without a Radius server ( more examples can be found at the readme
file of wpa_supplicant):
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant # for wpa_cli support
network={
ssid=“myssid“
psk=“mysecret“
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
proto=WPA
}
- Now start WPA with the command
wpa_supplicant –Dndiswrapper –iwlan* –c/“Directory of the created
wpa_supplicant.conf t“ –dd
( -dd shows you the complete dump to see any error during the start of WPA;
if everything is ok you can start it with –Bw later ? look at the readme for
further information)
- Now restart your WLAN card with ifconfig wlan* down and ifconfig wlan*
up in another console window.

directory!) for example into /home
4. start the console as root
5. ndiswrapper –i [/path to inf-file of the windows xp drivers]
(f.e. ndiswrapper –i /home/ctx405/PRISMA00.inf)
6. ndiswrapper –l to check the installed driver (“hardware present”)
7. modprobe ndiswrapper (for loading module)
8. check with dmesg if the module is loaded correctly
9. Now set the correct module for the this card with YaST – Network devices –
network card under advanced – hardware details. Don’t forget to set the
router IP and DHCP and encryption.
10.Restart
11.check with the command lsmod if prism54 and firmware_class are not loaded.
Configuration:
The configuration of the card will be made by YaST (/ect/sysconfig/network/ifcfgwlanx)
or the wireless tools iwconfig and ifconfig. To use this commands refer your
linux manual.
WPA:
To use WPA with CTX405 it is enough to configure the right encryption mode in
YAST. The program wpa_supplicant will be started automatically.

WPA under Windows XP
To configure WPA under Windows Xp you need Service Pack 2 for Windows Xp or the patch
of Microsoft:

Then you can configure WPA under Network Connection – priorities for wireless network but
you have to use the Windows configuration not the PRISM tool (depends on the driver).
