Can't install wireless adapter


Hey again,

I am trying to configure my USB Wireless adapter on Mandriva 2006, but I have no idea how to do it, my friend who uses Linux told me to use ndiswrapper with the .inf file of the driver, I did and it told me it was invalid (I did include the .sys file in the same folder)

So then I looked for the chipset that I could use and it said "Prism54" tried to load that driver thats invalid as well.

ndiswrapper's website said that my USB Wireless Adapter would work smoothly... but it doesn't... (Its a Linksys adapter btw)

Any Ideas?

model number is : WUSB54GS ver 2.1

When I do that command loads of stuff comes up anything in particular you want me to paste in my next reply?

I also realised that my Konsole version is 1.4.6 is that out of date... and I can also try to load drivers using a GUI and that fails as well, so I wondering wheter the Konsole version matters or not.

type lspci -v > ~/hardware.txt

this will take the output and place it into a file called hardware.txt that is located in your home directory.
