Question Slackware 10 and Belkin F5D7000 Wireless Card


I'm quite new to linux and need a bit of a hand please.

Im trying to get my wireless card ( Belkin F5D7000UK ) to work with Slackware 10. I've been following a techguy guide. everything goes as it should untill i need to do the iwconfig Set wlan0 mode Managed then it tells me it cant beacuse wlan0 doesnt exist. my pci card still doesnt show up on lspci -l either. ndiswrapper for the drivers and modprobe ndiswrapper both ran with no errors.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does "ndiswrapper -i" show that your card is detected? Once the windows driver is installed, "ndiswrapper -i" should list your installed ndis driver and say "hardware present." If it shows that your hardware is present, try running "ndiswrapper -m" to add the wlan0 alias to modules.conf.

that is incorrect.
ndiswrapper -i is used to install new drivers.
ndiswrapper -l will list installed drivers.

you need the output of ndiswrapper -l to be driver present, hardware present
