How to get Ndiswrapper with wpa_supplicant working

How to get Ndiswrapper with wpa_supplicant working

Greetings, welcome to my guide on Ndiswrapper and wpa_supplicant

Compiling Ndiswrapper from source

1. Get the ndiswrapper source code from and untar it(I presume you know how to untar sourcecode)

NOTE:Make sure you have gcc, kernel source and kernel headers installed before compiling ndiswrapper to where the ndiswrapper sourcecode is, run
then, as root
make install to the directory with your wireless drivers, and run, as root
ndiswrapper -i <driver>.inf run, as root
