Hi, Zenwalk on my old laptop is alot faster than opensuse 10.1. My first issue right now is getting ndiswrapper; wlan0 to start.
I have my card present, and detecting my network with iwlist wlan0 scan.
My problem is I can not get it to gather an IP number besides home (127.0.0.1). The card is set to managed and to autodetect dns.
the Network config tool will only see eth0, which is useless to me as I am only able to connect wirelessly. I know the driver I used works, worked great on Suse, and iwlist finds all the wireless networks in my locale.
Could someone please help me with Zenwalk 3.0 to load ndiswrapper on setup and connect, and for Network configuration to find my wlan0 card?
I have already set the essid with iwconfig - and it accepted it.
I have also done ifconfig wlan0 up, down, up, etc . . .
Some reason why - I just can not on Zenwalk 3.0 get it to connect.
Just in case it is like suse, yes eth0 is down, and disabled.
also lspci finds the pcmcia Broadcom card right away.
Hope this info may give a good starting point for a solution . . .?
Thank you, I hope to get Zenwalk online over the weekend.
