netwg511 invalid driver
Hi, I am a Linux newbie. I have often tried to install Linux (different distributions) on my Laptop, but I always failed with WLAN (only with a LIVE CD of Knoppix I've got a connection to my Router and to the Internet).
Since two weeks I try to configure my new Suse 10 that WLAN will work, but all I got (after an online update via the build in Ethernetcard) was an active WLAN (green LED on my Netgear WG511 is permanently on). I tried different configurations via YAST2 and KWIFI to get a connection to the DSL-Router and through it to the Internet. The best solution I obtained was the information of the router that a connection with 54Mps is active (the MAC adress of the WLAN card was also addressed)but there was no IP address assigned by the router (works as a DHCP server).
I was very happy about the detailed description I found for the installation of the WG511 with WPA on SuSE 10.0 in this forum and tried to follow it.
All worked well until I checked if ndiswrapper has installed the netwg511.inf file correct. Here a got the message: "netwg511 invalid driver".
I am confused and don't know how to proceed. I want to change from Microsoft to Linux, but I need a wireless connection to the Internet and as long as this doesn't work I can not change. Please help me. Thanks
