Hi everybody,

I'm trying to install my wireless card. I'm feeling that some progres happened but i have no result.

last situation
lspci :
01:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI Card (rev 01)

ndiswrapper -l :
bcmwl6 driver installed, hardware (14E4:4328) present (alternate driver: ndiswrapper)

ndiswrapper -ma :
module configuration information is stored in /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper

uname -a :
Linux localhost 2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 #1 SMP Sat Feb 10 15:51:47 EST 2007 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

usbcore: registered new interface driver ndiswrapper

And on boot, UDEV says that ndisnloader couldnt load the driver for bcmwl6 ??!!??!!

did I forget something ???

Any idea ? I ll be appreciated if anyone show me a way for this problem...

Thanks in advance.

ndiswrapper -l :

It appears that you have two competing drivers for the attention of your hardware. Perhaps the kernel is loading a version of bcmwl6 that is stomping on the version that ndiswrapper is loading, or viceversa.

You might try to blacklist the bcmwl6 driver that the kernel is loading or remove the ndiswrapper module with rmmod.
