ndiswrapper wireless install help please
I am using Fedora Core 3 Test 2 on a sony notebook. I have the intel 2200bg
wireless card. I have just setup the wireless card using the ndiswrapper 0.7
(all higher versions will not work on my machine) package from sourceforge.
I follow the INSTALL instructions to the letter and everything seems to go
well. The windows drivers load fine, dmesg produces the correct output and
so does iwconfig. I loaded the driver (ndiswrapper wlan0) into the "network"
menu. BUT when I go to the network menu and highlight the wireless card and
click "activate" I get the following error:
cannot parse MAC `wlan0' at argument 2
Errors cannot get any more ambiguous than this, I am at a total loss of
resourses here. This error keeps coming and scrolls through the window until
I click cancel and it will not connect to the internet (or AP for that
matter). I managed to get this far googling every time I got stuck but for
this error I do not get anything relevant. Any ideas?
Now I noticed that the settings dissapear after I reboot, even though I did execute the command "modprobe -m" to commit to the settings. iwconfig and ifconfig revert to their previous state before the install, but the card still shows up under "network", if I activate it from there it activates but no connection. Can anyone please tell me what am I doing wrong? What other info would be useful to help me resolve this issue?
Thanks in advance
