Dell D510 wireless adapter issues
I know this kind of stuff has been beat to death... I've been messing with this thing for a few days now and I'm ready to biff it out my car window on the highway:cry:...
So I have a Dell D150 Dual Booted with a workstation edition of WinXP Pro (NTLDR not Grub) and Ubuntu 6.06 LTS.
The wireless adapter will not activate in Ubuntu, it does find A wireless adapter and names it eth1 :S... So I have tryied at least 5 or 6 different ways to set this up with ndiswrapper and no matter WHAT the wireless card will not turn on...
I can get the driver to install and report back fine but it still shows the old one in the network config list.
The CLOSEST I came to success so far came from http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthre...hlight=headers
... but at step 3 when typing:
^^^ Can I edit these files myself? I just don't know what it's trying to add to these config files...
PLEASE HELP ME!!!
I'm still new at linux even though I've used it for 4 years now. I've never had to config a wireless card before... THANKS!!!
Check the permissions on /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmwl5/*.conf. You may need a sudo in front of the for . . .
In any case, all you're doing is changing the "1" to "0" in the "RadioState" setting, which you can do by hand using your favorite editor (in sudo mode, of course.)
