I have been using this guy's blog to help me out...
Well anyway I got ndiswrapper all installed and followed ihjis page.
I alredy have a 10/100 nic that is eth0
I tried to remove the wifi driver with the command:
ndiswrapper -e ....inf
It reports back and says that ...inf is not installed and to use -l to view a list of installed drivers.
that command reports badk:
"Installed ndis drivers:
bcmw15a hardware present"
Next he tells me to type:
ndiswrapper -m //This put an entry to /etc/modprobe.conf
that entry is "alias wlan0 ndiswrapper"
Now is where everything starts getting screwed up. He says to type:
"iwconfig eth1 Mode managed"
returns: "Error : unrecognised wireless request "MODE"
iwconfig eth1 end restricted
returns: "Error : unrecognised wireless request "end"
iwconfig eth1 key <your_key_here>
returns: Error for wireless request "Set Endoce" (8B2A)
iwconfig eth1 essid <home_network>
returns: bash: syntax erroir near unexpectedtoken 'newline'
now I type isconfig, but when I do it says:
lo no wireless connection
sit0 no wireless connection
eth0 no wireless connection
Does anyone have any iday how to help me? I need wifi for school and would really like to get this up. I know it dan be done, I just don't know how.
