Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.3, wireless card is not activated.....


Hi All,,,

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:
netw5v32:driver installed
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?

thanks.....please help...

Yes there is something wrong with this. No one should install OEL.

Oracle seems to be trying to become the next MicroSoft - letting them have the OS in addition to the DB and the application is just begging for monopolistic moves like someday requiring us all to use OEL or Solaris (which they are buying) to use their other products.
