I was reading through the readme file, and I noticed that it said you have to disable ssb in order for this to work, which I think is a problem because ssb is needed by b44, which is needed to make my wired network card work. However, I'll try it and see how it goes.

So I've tried out all the stuff I've downloaded and as I suspected, doing this disables the wired network connection... if there's any more ideas out there, it'd be appreciated, but it doesn't look promising for me

Last Sunday I got wireless networking on a Dell Inspiron 1501. I have not tried wired networking but eth0 does show up. I have not been using ndiwrapper but:

installed b43-fwcutter and b43-firmware from slackbuilds.


b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware/ b43-fwcutter/wl_apsta-

reboot and wireless was working with the b43 driver


dell, inspiron, ndiswrapper, slackware, wireless
