reinstall ndiswrapper after every kernel update?


My wireless stopped working as soon as I did the latest kernel update. So, I'm wondering if I have to go through installing ndiswrapper every time I do a kernel update?

Yes you do. Ndiswrapper has kernel modules and when you upgrade you need to reinstall them.

ok - so it's just a matter of going through the same process that I did the first time I installed it right? ( i just followed the instructions on the ndiswrapper wiki )

No differences?

Cheers.

Nope, no differences - in fact, you can skip the "download ndiswrapper" step, which speeds things up a little
