Quickly Reactivating NDISwrapper After Log In
For anyone that uses NDISwrapper to activate and engage the drivers of WLAN cards, you may have noticed that if you LOG OUT or need to REBOOT your computer, NDISwrapper no longer works upon LOG IN. Earlier I wrote a forum post titled "Ndiswrapper quickfix" to remedy this problem. Now, I have a quicker and easier solution.
After a LOG IN following a REBOOT or LOG OUT:
1) Activate the shell console
2) Type "modprobe ndiswrapper" and press ENTER
This should reactivate NDISwrapper and allow your WLAN card to work.
3) Type "iwconfig" and press ENTER (optional)
This will confirm the network parameters and settings associated with
Steps 1 and 2 are all you really need to reactivate the WLAN. Step 3 simply displays network parameters and settings. This procedure has been successfully tested on SuSE Pro 9.2.
