Thanks guys for all of your help. I first tried to answer the questions that darkleaf asked. When I do a "ndiswrapper -l" the machine says "lsbcmnds driver present." That is the driver for the wireless card, and this shows that the driver is installed. However, it does not say that the hardware is present, hence my strange error message. All the times I installed this, I used "modprobe ndiswrapper."
Now, on to what coolpyrofreak suggested. I followed all of these steps carefully. In short, I still get the error message (even after restart). Here is what my machine said after each of the steps:
"ndiswrapper -e [insert wlan card here]":
I inserted both "wlan0" and "lsbcmnds" there. When I inserted "wlan0," it returned "Driver wlan0 is not installed. Use -l to list the installed drivers." I did the "ndiswrapper -l" and it returned "lsbcmnds driver present." When I inserted "lsbcmnds" there, it returned nothing, so I assume that I wasn't supposed to insert that there.
Paste into file:
Alright, I did this successfully. There was already some stuff in there, I left everything and modified the items listed here. The only one that got changed was BOOTPROTO, which was set to "none" for some reason.
I did the same way I have been in the past, including running "ndiswrapper -m" before running "modprobe ndiswrapper".
I changed this to yes, because this will be the only adapter I use with this system for a while. I noticed that, when I boot FC4, it says the same error message under ndiswrapper when it is booting up with a red [FAILED] next to it.
I am using the latest version of ndiswrapper - version 1.2. I downloaded it off of SourceForge.
Anyone have any other ideas for me?
