Need source code of FCC ID:NHPWLG1500 Drivers FC6


hi, i've recently changed over from win xp to fedora core 6 (at the time i had no dvd drive) and i curently have a very long ethernet cable running to my router,

could someone please point me in the direction of these drivers,

its like a silver sort of oval shaped usb 2.0 device and on the back it has

CE0470! WLG -1500A/PROTAC
FCC ID: NGPWLG1500 0630C1237510

MAC:00032F39ADB5

i have a disk with windows drivers that came with it, but i don't really want to be using wine all the time so any help would be appreciated

Well, you can use ndiswrapper for you USB wireless card.

They say:

# Card: Mentor 802.11g Wireless LAN USB Adapter (WLG-USB/II)
* usbid: ID 0457:0163
* lsusb: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0457:0163 Silicon Integrated Systems Corp.
* Driver: sis163u.inf, sis163u.sys
* Installation: just follow README

So, install ndiswrapper, take mentioned files from Win install CD, and follow README from ndiswrapper.

And, most important, have fun

argh, why dont the instructions in ndiswrapper work, i did word for word what they said n it still doesnt work, (inputting file names where necessary) i put in ndiswrapper -i /media/WLAN/Drivers/Windows\ XP/SiS163u.inf and it said something like bash: ndiswrapper: command does not exist, so i tried putting ./ in front of it but it still doesnt work, while it was compiling it mentioned something about 4k stacking and that i should disable it somehow, but i don't know how
