Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.3, wireless card is not activated.....
i have installed oracle enterprise linux 5.3, and my laptop has intel wifi 5100 wireless card which is not active.
i have tried ndiswrapper 1.54 everything was installed fine,,,,when i type "ndiswrapper -l"...
it displays device present,,,but still my wireless card is not active,,,although it scans the wireless networks when i issue "iwlist wlano scan" command..
when i try to activate the card.....it says
Error for wireless request "Set Mode"(8B06):
SET failed on device wlan0;invalid argument.
Determining IP information failed for wlan0
output of ndiswrapper -l command:
device (8086:4243) present (alternate driver: iwlagn)
Also at the time of shutting down Linux.....it says shutting down wlan0 interface: ACPI PCI interrup for this device is disabled....
is anything wrong with this?
