For the past day or so, I've been trying to get my wireless network card to work with linux. Unfortunately, it was unable to set it up and detect on installation, which is why I'm in the position that I'm in.
I recently purchases a Belkin Wireless G network card for my desktop. With the proper drivers, it works fine with Windows. My problem is, that I can't find the proper drivers for my card to use linux. I heard about a program called ndiswrapper, which is supposed to use windows drivers in linux. Unfortunately, that didn't work out. When i tried to 'wrap' the windows driver, the program returned nothing to me, and then i typed 'dmesg' to see if anything was wrong, and I ended up getting several pages that are gibberish to me. I can only assume that there was an error. Besides ndiswrapper, is there a way to get my wireless network card working with Mandriva 10.1? Will the next version of Mandriva have better wireless support? I am a newbie to linux, so please avoid anything over the top technical, because it will mean nothing to me.
Thanks for the help,
