It is correct what ndiswrapper -l displays ... It should display driver installed and hardware present.

Now you almost have it since you can find your router.

Check that page for the Final Adjustments to the wlan0 Configuration File:

Still not working , the card now seems to connected up, the configuration of the device made no difference, any ideas? One thing though how do I find out my 'Internet Service Provider's Domain Name Server IP addresses'? Thanks

With what I can help is until you can ping your access point.

Open a console and do a ping to your router.

>ping IP_of_the_router



For the DNS, you should call your ISP or do a google search.

just tried to ping the router but it claims it cannot connect with the network. I have phoned up my isp ( bt broadband ) and they claim I did not need a DNS address, I told the person I had linux but was hung up on.Would my router be able to tell me as I can (in window$) connect to the firmware

First of all you need to configure your internal network then you should worry about DNS.

You should be able to ping the router ...

I donīt know about Suse how to configure the network interface ... if you had Debian I could help you with that ...

Can anyone help with the Suse network interface configuration?

Which IP address are you talking about?

- Your internal network IP? --> You have to check your router configuration and change it from DHCP (dynamic) to static.

- Your external IP (the IP as your machine is seen by the outside world)? --> This depends on your Internet Service Provider if they gave you a static or a dynamic IP.

I would check the Routers admin menu too see if an ip was given to your wireless card.


Im pretty sure you have to also setup an ssid for your card to use with the router.
Its been so long from since i last used a wireless card with Ndiswrapper with linux (RedHat 8 I think) There should be away to set eth0 or eth1 (whichever is your wireless card) and assign it a ssid.

Question Fedora Core I & Wireless problems

Currently I have just started to get into Linux. Fedora Core 1 I thought was a good place to start. I am trying to install the F5D7000 Belkin wireless router and have had no luck. I installed ndiswrapper1.2 and was unable to use the OEM drivers. Anyone got any words of wisdom or instructions for this baby to linux?

Matt
