Ubuntu NDIS-GTK WIRELESS PROBLEM


Just recently i installed ubuntu 6.0, I tried to setup my wireless network with my wireless g speed booster card. So i downloaded ndis-gtk and put in the cd (that it came with on windows)so that i could get the .inf file (wmp54gs).I got the file and installed it with the hardware in place, and it isn't recognizing the hardware. I've tried everything from removing the hardware installing and putting it back in, to trying diffrent .inf files. Anyways help would be much apreciated
sincerly

Assuming it's broadcom chipset, going by the *.inf, try this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...Driver/bcm43xx . Possible native bcm43xx conflicting with ndiswrapper. If it's 4306 chipset you have then add firmware as per guide - stable and works well, forget ndiswrapper.
