linuxant + hp zt3000 + dell truemobile 1300

So I'm trying to get my Dell TrueMobile 1300 card running, I downloaded the drivers, installed, everything seems to work ok, but I'm not getting an internet connection (the wireless router is *literally* right next to the computer). I'm still too much of a n00b to diagnose what the problem is here... it loads fine, I've ready the FAQ and everything seems to be in order, are there any typical problems people run into? Is there a walkthrough anywhere?

Also, the linuxant driver has totally taken over my normal ethernet connection, I can put it up with ifconfig ethX up, but it doesn't grab an IP.

Anyone had any success with a TrueMobile 1300 with ndiswrapper?

I am using the 1300 as I type this. It does not take over my Broadcom wired ethernet port though. In your /etc/modules.conf add the lines

alias ethx driverloader
alias ethy WiredEthernetDriver

Obviously you need to replace x and y with numbers of your choice, (0 and 1 most likely) and change wiredEthernetDriver to whatever you have (mine reads alias eth0 b44)

After that do a /sbin/depmod -a or reboot. That should keep both cards straight. Also, the config files are located at /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth*
