Ndiswrapper FC 6
Good Day,

I have fc6 32 bit on amd64 bit laptop dell inspiron 15011.
I have used ndiswrapper on in it for over a year now.
I had to install FC 6 again.

Now I have
1-kernel header files.
2-ndiswrapper 1.47 (I compiled it on the machine with no errors)
3-bcmwl6.inf I installed it using ndiswrapper -i bcmwl6.inf
4-ndiswrapper -l gives me
bcmwl6 : driver installed device (14e4: 4311) present
#modprobe ndiswrapper wireless connection light doesn't turn on(like it used to be (previous installation))
6-iwconfig bring back "no wireless extension"
7-#lsmod shows ndiswrapper is loaded.
8- tail -n /var/log/messege shows
"could not load bcmwl6 check system log"
"unknown symbol: ...... ndiswrapper"

Any Ideas?

Is the inf driver you have the 32bit version?
Have you blacklist any bcm43xx modules from loading.
List entire lsmod output.
