I'm really new at this (just installed Arch 3 days ago), so if something I say sounds stupid, please try to understand.
Okay so I spent the whole day trying to get my wireless working. Couldn't.
So far I was able to install ndiswrapper, and the driver needed.
[root@SuperSai ~]# ndiswrapper -l
net111v2 : driver installed
device (0846:6A00) present
[root@SuperSai ~]# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate:54 Mb/s Tx-Power:20 dBm Sensitivity=0/3
ff Fragment thr
Encryption key:5303-4524-68 Security mode:restricted
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0

So I went to my RC config file and try to fiddle with it a little bit, commenting the eth0 interface and adding wlan0 interface.
MODULES=(ndiswrapper e100 eepro100 mii)
INTERFACES=(lo !eth0 wlan0)
gateway="default gw 192.168.0.1"
[root@SuperSai ~]# /etc/rc.d/network restart
and fail. No lights are blinking on the adapter, but its hot. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. What do you think could be the problem? Help ASAP because I'm gonna loose my wired connection very soon and then I'll be in big trouble. X_X thanks
