question for you guys:
After playing with the ndiswrapper all day I finally got it to work. The only problem is, every time I boot I have to activate the module and establish an IP. What a pain. After boot and login I have to type:
iwconfig wlan0 key s:XXXXX
When I set the WEP key for my router my ESSID and all the other settings are automatically set, which is nice because I've been browsing the forums and seeing a lot of people having problems setting the specs for these things. Anyway, are there files that I can edit which will activate the ndiswrapper and set up the WEP key before the DHCP broadcast is sent so everything is automatic? I'm using Slackware 9.1 with the 2.4.22 kernel by the way. Also, I'm going to try updating to the 2.6.6 kernel soon. Am I going to have to do all this over and is updating the kernel a good idea in the first place?
