Help!!! Getting Wireless Card set up
Please forgive me but I am a novice to linux and have run into a couple of roadblocks.
distro opensuse 10.3
DELL Dimension 8100 desktop, p4 cpu, 1G ram, 320G HD
Wireless card NETGEAR WG311v3
I have not had any luck getting this wireless card set up. I followed several threads and everything pointed to getting ndiswrapper. I have hooked the PC up to the internet by ethernet cable and I think I have the ndiswarpper loaded now. Can someone point me in the direction of what to do next. In order to get this PC online I have taken the Wireless card out and installed the ethernet card...I have other PCs to get online with.
1. how can I make sure the ndiswrapper is loaded on the PC?
2. can I unhook the PC from the internet and continue with the wireless set up? or do I need to keep it online to get this finished?
I really appreciate all the help!
