I've tried two solutions for my wireless dlink dwl 650+ on slackware 10
ndiswrapper and the acx1xx driver at acx100.sourceforge.net
I have gotten them both to work at install. But I can't get ndiswrapper to work at startup. I can get acx1xx to work at startup. But it still dosn't work when i replug in the card.
for acx1xx i use the start_net script that comes with the driver. I reference it in /etc/rc.d/rc.local
for ndiswrapper I had a script that went something like this
iwconfig wlan0 essid xxxxx
ifconfig wlan0 up
I reference this script in /etc/rc.d/rc.local
When the script runs iwconfig and ifconfig complain that they can't find wlan0. The odd thing is that if i run this script a second time it works. It's as if it runs modprobe ndiswrapper in the background while it exicutes iwconfig and ifconfig. So that they run before modprobe has a chance to finish.
So what I'd like to know is how to get ndiswrapper working at startup and how to get either one of them hotplugable
PS... No i'm not trying to run both of these at once
