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
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:
for conffile in /etc/ndiswrapper/bcmwl5/*.conf; do
sudo cat $conffile | sed -e 's/RadioState|1/RadioState|0/' > $conffile
I get a whole bunch of "permission denied" on all the files it trys to write to.... Changing the permissions on the folders and files did nothing and I cant "sudo" that command...
^^^ 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!!!
