Fedora Core 1, Ndiswrapper, and Broadcom wireless card...
Alright, heres the deal. I have a Dell TrueMobile 1400 Dual Band WLAN Mini-PCI card. I installed ndiswrapper-0.10.tar.gz and went through all of those steps and when I run ndiswrapper -l i get bcmw15a present. I also ran modprobe ndiswrapper. When I do iwconfig and ifconfig both have my wlan0 with all the information it needs. I had trouble getting it to show up as a Device when I went to New network connection but after adding ifcgf-wlan0 in /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices it showed up. So then I made my wireless connection using ndiswrapper(wlan0) and that all worked but when I click activate it says "Cannot get driver information: No such device" and then it also says something about trying to get the IP address for wlan0... and hangs. Any Ideas??? :Pengy:
Turns out it says it can't find the driver no such device, it does and it lets me connect. Must be because of using ndiswrapper it doesn't recognize it as a device but it still works.
Thanks for all who took the time to read this post and ponder an answer.
