It depends on what type of wlan you are using

maybe the same nic as this one ?

I configured ndiswrapper, and the wireless almost works.


I have some problems:

1) I cant browser through my lan, but i can't go out to Internet. I need to add a gateway. Please help me, i don't know how to.

2) When I reboot my box, i need to run again mobprobe ndiswrapper. I need to install this module into the kernell. I don't know how to.



Thank for the help.

I sort of had the same thing with suse I had eth0 and wlan0 if eth) was up. Wlan0 was able to only see local network. The easy fix ifdown eth0 ifdown wlan0 then ifup wlan0

I started running fedora and don't have the problem anymore. I used to run suse. I was using the suse wlan-ng driver and then the native prism driver. my problem was the wlan0 would never see the outside world without doing the ifdown and ifup dance i talked about. Of course had them set dhcp. But one place I was using my laptop at all the time only allowed dhcp.

Two things ar left to do

1)
you must add
alias wlan0 ndiswrapper
to /etc/modules.conf

2)
Most linux implementation use routed * (daemon) to make the router table, there seems to be an eth0 nic and most of the time eth0 is used to forward ip traffic to a default location.

there should be en entry like
0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan0
or
default 192.168.0.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan0

have a look at the other computer what the address of your router is

use following command to test it

route add default gw IP-Address-Router wlan0

Because the routed deamon rebuild's the table at reboot you must add this script to /etc/init.d map

PS I was wondering what would happen if you add

alias eth0 ndiswrapper
to /etc/modules.conf file

Okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

I'm navigating with my wireless card, but when i reboot ndiswrapper does't work. I add the alias
on modules.conf, but doesn't work

I must modprobe ndiswraper again.


Another idea.


Thanks for the help friend.

I have only found a work around

You have to make scripts in

/etc/rc.d/rc5.d


The S08wlan file contained the following...
#!/bin/bash
modprobe ndiswrapper


The K13wlan file contained the follwoing
#!/bin/bash
modprobe -r ndiswrapper

use
chmod 777 S08wlan K13wlan
to make it executable
