linksys pcmcia wpc54gv2 in linux

has anyone successfully make this card works in linux specially in debian. i saw a tutorial in rh9 but i don't have rh9 installation so i can't prove if it really works or not.

anyone from debian guys?

i'm using:

debian 3.0(woody)
kernel 2.6.7
linksys wpc54gv2

i tried this
ndiswrapper -i /directory/file.inf
modprobe ndiswrapper
edited /etc/network/interface added iface wlan0 inet dhcp

but when i tried to turn on the wlan0 i got this error:

FATAL: Module p80211 not found.
Failed to load p80211.o.
run-parts: /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/linux-wlan-ng-pre-up exited with return code 1

ndiswrapper -l

It will give you the status of your card. Make sure that both the driver and the card are recognized.

i have that card took me 3 days to get it going...
make sure you use the LSTINDS.INF (NOT lsbcmnds.inf)

ndiswrapper -i LSTINDS.INF
ndiswrapper -l
(make sure driver AND hardware are present)
ndiswrapper -m
modprobe ndiswrapper
dhcpcd wlan0

hope that helps
