Angry Ndiswapper on Fedora 3 with kernel 2.6.11


Hi everyone, I had my wireless card (broadcom 802.1 b/g wlan) work perfect on the kernel 2.6.9 with fedora 3 but when I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.11 it stopped working. I tried reinstalling the driver but I get the following message:
invalid driver
Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2
Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2
Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2
Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2
Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2
Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2

I really need help on this.

It says that someone got something similar working by using a different driver. Other than that it might help if you say which model name of the card you have. Have you recompiled ndiswrapper after the kernel upgrade?

Are you sure you need to use ndiswrapper to get your card working with that kernel. As far as I know 2.6.11 supports wireless cards out of the box..
