this is cause you'll need to update wireless tools

Code:

ndiswrapper -l

heres what the outputs were:

[root@localhost eric]# /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper -l
Installed drivers:
bcmw15 invalid driver!
bcmw15 driver installed, hardware present
[root@localhost eric]# /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper -m
Adding "alias wlan0 ndiswrapper" to /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper
