Hello. WMP300N Wireless Card Not Working Help Please.
I have installed Mandriva Power Pack 2009 on my PC and got everything else working except my wireless card.
Intel mother board
Quad core processor
Nvidia Geforce 8800 GSX
Lynksys WMP300N PCI WIRELESS N Card
Maxtor 1T hard drive.
BFG Power Supply
Just to name a few of the hardware parts that are on the system.
This is a home built PC from fry's Electronics its a desktop tower home built just so we are clear.
I have read threw so many forums on this subject and have basically tried everything I can and yet have had no luck. Now I have installed ndiswrapper and went threw the control center to the hardware section and selected Run Config Tool and than selected the BCM Driver witch is the wireless card and tried to configure it, and while I am going threw the steps after I choose the BCMWL5.inf file and click next I get an error. This error message ses. ( Unable to find ndiswrapper interface! ) So I researched on this and the forum I came across ses to delete the driver and manually install the driver threw terminal.so I did and after that I restarted the computer and checked in terminal, Ndiswrapper -l. Reported back to me the driver and hardware are both present now I'm using gnome gui and on the top right on the network icon I right click it and don't see any of the wireless networks around.. I have also tried modprobe ndiswrapper in terminal and demod -a still nothing. One thing I do want to point out is the green light on the lynksys card is not on and usually is.... I have tried several drivers also.If anyone can please help and get me up and going I would be very happy and thankful.
