Install wireless NIC issue


Hi,
I install SUSE 10.2 to my Acer Aspire 9300-5317 with AMD 64x2 Turion.

I have a problem to configurate my Wireless NIC.

When I use lspci, it displays "04:05.0 AR5005G rev 01 " as my NIC.


How can I configurate my WNIC?

Can I use ndiswrapper to install the driver?

If yes, where can I download <some>.inf file

in order to use ndiswrapper to install?


Thank you.

You can use madwifi to make your Atheros card work. Follow the guide at http://www.softwareinreview.com/cms/content/view/60

Madwifi is much easier than ndiswrapper.

The 'driver' is included in the madwifi rpm. If you follow the relevant part of the guide exactly, you'll have no problems.
