I have a WPG54G PCI card and a router im running suse 9.1 personal edition.I install the pci card and boot. I use yast yast2 gui and kde i run yast as root and go to hardware >> hardware info ..yast 2 does some probing..ok... brings up hardware info list i scroll down to network card and open it and i see BCM94306 802.11g and i get this list .
Class (spec): Network controller
Device identifier (spec): 65556
Device: BCM94306 802.11g
Model: Linksys BCM94306 802.11g
Old Unique Key: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (i have)
+Resources (shows resources irq,mem ect..)
Slot ID: 9
Unique key: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (i have)
Vender: Broadcom (i know this is on supported list of ndis wrapper)
sysfs_bus_id: 0000:00:09.0 (think this refers to pci bus id not sure tho)
At this point im assuming that the the hardware is detected so i go to yast network devices>>Network cards this is were i start to get lost im new at linux and suse 9.1 and yast. I open up network cards and nothing is shows just "other" so i click on "other" and it
opens a configuration menu I looked around it abit and closed it dint want to jump the gun and make or configure something
that wasnt needed to be configured.so i decided to look some other places utilities ect.... ran "lspci" umm samething shows BCM94306 802.11g as a network controller witch confirms what i thought about it being detected as hardware so im looking around some more and i find suseplugger nice hardware manager so i go to network controller and BCM94306 802.11g is there i look under details and sure enough no driver showing so I think this is why its not showing up under Network cards i no that there is ndis wrapper witch can take the xp driver and convert it to be used by linux this is were im stuck do i go to yast>>> network cards and select "other" if so how do i configure it to ndis wrapper im lost .
I assume that I would select "wireless" from the <device type>. Next on the list is <configuration name> leave this at "0" ? Im not sure? Next is <hardware configuration name> the default value is
static-0 i have no idea what this does do i need to put a value
like BCM94306 802.11g or do i just leave it the same? next is <module name> is this where ndis wrapper goes ? or do i need to put some other information here if someone could help me with what i need to have in these fields if or this is even how i set up the device up i would be soooooooo thankful!
