Wireless on Dell 5150


Hi,
I've been trying to follow the NDISWRAPPER tutorial on setting up SuSE 9.2 Professional with wireless, specifically WPA-PSK. I have setup ndiswrapper, as far as I can tell and setup my drivers... The part that I'm workign with now is WPA_Supplicant. I have it installed and I am trying to setup everything, but running into some errors. I'm hoping somebody can help! Thank you in advance...

I have installed NDISWRAPPER and WPA_SUPPLICANT via YAST. I have installed the driver for my wireless card (mini-pci)

linux:~ # ndiswrapper -l
Code:
Installed ndis drivers:
bcmwl5  hardware present
linux:~ # dmesg
Code:
ndiswrapper: unsupported module, tainting kernel.
ndiswrapper version 0.10 loaded (preempt=no,smp=yes)
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:02:02.0[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 185
ndiswrapper: using irq 185
wlan0: ndiswrapper ethernet device 00:90:4b:74:fc:a8 using driver bcmwl5.sys
ndiswrapper device wlan0 supports WPA with AES/CCMP and TKIP ciphers
ndiswrapper: driver bcmwl5.sys (Broadcom,06/13/2003, 3.20.23.0) added
wlan0: no IPv6 routers present
As far as I can tell, the network card is setup correct in Yast, as it has the same values as the tutorial, mainly having the module name='ndiswrapper'

This is where I'm starting to run into problems.

inux:~ # wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -d ndiswrapper -dd
Code:

Again, thank you for your help!
