I am using Fedora Core 5 kernel 2.6.17-1.2139_FC5. I am having trouble with my Broadcomm BCM94318MPG. I have had this configured once before using ndiswrapper and directions from this article: /linux/answers/Networking/Ndiswrapper_in_Fedora_Core_5 This time around that doesn't work, I follow the steps one by one everything goes smooth until I hit the
ifconfig wlan0 up
wlan0: unknown interface: No such device
So I go to system >> administration >> network I look at hardware and listed is my realtek lan eth0, broadcomm wifi dev15912, ndiswrapper wifi wlan0, I have read alot of articles and questions on this setup (wireless and FC5) but none I can find that help me. Also when i try to activate the broadcomm it says
determining ip information... failed; no link present check cable...
and for the ndiswrapper it says this
ndiswrapper device wlan0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.
I have no idea what I need to do. when i remove ndiswrapper drivers and uninstall ndiswrapper the broadcomm stays there. i delete it from the hardware list and it will reappear after i close the window...yes i saved the configuration. I am so lost. I have an interview and need to get my laptop up and running with wifi again so if anyone has an idea let me know. thnx
