Question Installing USB Wireless Adapter- DWL-G122 on Fedora7


I have been trying to install a USB Wireless Adapter (DLink DWL-G122) on my Fedore7 (64 bit) system, but in vain.

I had done some googling and also referred to some forums which recommended installation of ndiswrapper/ downloading the driver from various sites. What lacked were steps involved to get this done. And me being a newbie to LINUX environment was thrown many errors, at various stages which confused me.

Can someone help me with this installation.
I will be more than glad to provide any further H/W or S/W specs or any other info.

Ndiswrapper has two basic steps: First, use ndiswrapper -l to load the Windows driver into the wrapper; then second, use modprobe ndiswrapper to load ndiswrapper into the kernel.

You might wsnt to first check to see if your card is one that is known to work:,33/id,list/

There is some pretty good documentation, including step-by-step instructions at:,33/
