Hi dangolrk,

You need to have the card inserted before you configure and make ndiswrapper, not after. You state that after running ndiswrapper -l the drivers are present. Is it saying "hardware present" as well? If not then its a hardware problem ie. If you have hotplugging installed then Fedora will show the card in your hardware list. If its there then you need to run through a ndiswrapper uninstall procedure and then run through the whole install procedure again, making sureyour hardware is installed.
Hope this helps
Regards
Chris

didn't work

Thanks for the reply.
I went throug the whole process with the card inserted and it didn't work. how to check if the hotplug is installed in my machine ?
can it be that the driver I am using is different? I got the wireless card from Fry's and go the driver from the Linuxant website. The output is
[root@localhost usrobotics_linux]# ndiswrapper -l
Installed ndis drivers:
usr11g driver present

Okay, it isnt detecting your hardware, although your driver is being installed correctly. I see the driver you got for it from linuxant - that looks fine. I haven't any experience with fedora so you will need to research that elsewhere to ensure hotplugging is installed. Can you post back an output for the command
Code:
lspci
as well?
Regards
Chris

this thread is done, but in case someone got here due to gone15's post about Fedora freezing after invoking `modprobe ndiswrapper`, i thought i'd note that this is the normal situation for Fedora users with the 2.6 kernel. see ndiswrapper page on 4K stack size and kernel crashing on Fedora:
http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/p...dex.php/Fedora
