Can't install Realtek DWL-610 wifi card


Hi,

I've tried to install my D-Link DWL-610 wifi card on my laptop. I am running Ubuntu 5.10 and have tried the following

sudo ndiswrapper -i NET8180.INF

I get the message "Installing net8180". After that I type

ndiswrapper -l

and get the message "net8180 driver present". Then I run

depmod -a

and I get no message. Finally I run

modprobe ndiswrapper

but it seems like the card isn't installed properly, because if I run dmesg or type iwconfig I can't see wlan0 anywhere. Does anyone know what the problem might be?
By the way, I am using the newest driver from Realteks website.

Well, problem solved... I tried to install the card with the driver for DWL-510 instead and it worked. I read on a website that a guy had tried to install the DWL-510 driver instead and had success.

Ok... but still why use ndiswrapper when there are open source drivers?

I don't know how that works. Is there an open source driver for DWL-610?
