I've got an HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop with an AMD64 3200+ running Gentoo.
I purchased a Linksys WPC54G version 2 PCMCIA wireless card for the machine and I'm having an extremely difficult time getting NDISwrapper working properly.
I've tried installing these drivers :
But I've had no luck with them.
When I lspci I get
0000:04:00.0 Class ffff: Texas Instruments ACX 111 54Mbps Wireless Interface (rev ff)
So, I assume that my kernel is configured properly as I believe that is my card. My card isn't getting any power though.
dmesg gives me the following message :
<3>ndiswrapper (ndiswrapper_load_driver:93): loadndiswrapper failed (9); check system log for messages from 'loadndiswrapper' *not sure how to do that*
I checked the ndiswrapper faq and it said the following :
Can I use ndiswrapper in 64-bit mode for AMD64?
Support for 64-bit drivers has been added in version 1.0. Only Broadcom is known to work at this time.
I'm not quite sure if my card uses a Broadcom chip and haven't found anything telling me yes or no.
I've tried using these drivers from Linuxant
But the results are about the same.
If anyone has some advice for me on how to get this working properly I'd really appreciate it. Heck, at this point, if anyone can recommend a card that works better on my machine it'd be great.
Thanks in advance for the help and if you need anymore information let me know.
