I am installing a netgear card (wg311 v2 in my Desktop machine, Pentium II 450 MHz and Slackware 10.1 with the default kernel, and it seems to be correctly detected (according to the lspci command result).
So, I installed the ndiswrapper, and I did the default procedure:
-"ndiswrapper -i <path_win_driver=wg311v2.inf> " and the result was ok, i think, because it says that wg311v2 is present, but doing a dmesg, it does not say nothing related with an internet interface....
-"ndiswrapper -l" and the driver seems also to be ok... "wg311v2 present"
-"ndiswrapper -m" to add the module to the "/etc/modules.conf" and its done... "alias wlan0 ndiswrapper"
and after this I did "modprobe ndiswrapper", and it seems to work... but
I don't get an network interface at all... What I mean is... that when I try to see, or to edit the wlan0 interface with ifconfig/iwconfig, I always have the same kind of errors... "wlan0 no such device".
I don't know what more I can do... because I tried to see if I need to add some special file under "/ert/rc.d" related with this interface... but this should be done automatically from the result of ifconfig/iwconfig also...
I think I gave the most important information about the problem, but if someone need more details, please just tell me...
