Hi i'm trying to get my wireless card working on my fresh install of fedora core 9 for my laptop. I have a HP Pavilion dv2116wm. The driver im trying to use is here provided below. I am generally new at linux but I have a little experience. I was trying to get ndiswrapper to work so my wireless card would work. I have installed ndiswrapper using yum and got the driver installed in ndiswrapper. When i enter the command "ndiswrapper -l" I get:
bcmwl6 : driver installed
device (14E4:4311) present (alternate driver: ssb)
Which I've read is a good sign. I then tried "ndiswrapper -m" and then "modprobe ndiswrapper" My wireless card still isnt working. I have also tried rebooting my system. When I check the log using dmesg, wlan0 doesn't show up in the log at all. I have tried everything I can think of to try and get this to work any help would be appreciated. Don't want to go back to XP.
