Exclamation ndiswrapper problems


i used to have a wireless internet connection on my computer. then i had to reinstall linux because something was majorly screwed up. so, of course, reinstalling it made me lose my internet setup and ndiswrapper. i tried installling ndiswrapper again, but it wouldnt work. When i used the "make install" command, it eventually stopped installing. It was complaining about some usb.o file or something like that.

i would like the wireless card to work again.
thanks in advance

hi drethenerd,

It'd be good to get more info on those errors if possible. I suggest uninstalling ndiswrapper, downloading version 0.11 and trying again, amking sure you are superuser (root) at the command line when you install it. You need to make sure you have wireless tools installed as well as your kernel-source files.
Regards
Chris
