Help: How to install a Linksys Wireless card on Fed. Core 3
The card: Linksys WMP54G
I really got no idea on how to install this wireless card. As far as I know I can either use the native Windows drivers or I can install a generic driver such as Madwifi.
I previously tried madwifi but I couldn't make it work (not in the current machine, and the other os was RH9).
Could anyone give me some advice on what to do here?

Thank you very much.
linksys driver solution (sort of...)
I found most of a solution at this website:
in summary, you need the linksys driver (for windows), ndiswrapper (1.1) , and dhcpcd (1.3.22-pl4).
the problem I'm having is with shutdown. when I put the computer into the shutdown sequence, it always hangs up at "Stopping iptables:"
I've figured out that if I manually kill the dhcpcd process before shutdown, everything goes cleanly, otherwise I get the hangup.
If anyone knows the solution to THAT, I'd appreciate an answer. I'm looking into /etc/init.d/halt right now, but no answers yet.
Maybe a little script will help you
Why don't you create a script that runs:
and create a softlink in /etc/rc0.d and rc6.d?
That will automatically shutdown the dhcp daemon.
If it's not a service do so using /sbin/chkconfig.
Error modprobing ndiswrapper
I get an error when doing:
I look on dmesg and I see:
Is this actually suggesting that I have to install gcc-3.3??
ndiswrapper: version magic '2.6.10-1.9_FC2.stk16 686 REGPARM 16STACKS gcc-3.4' should be '2.6.10-1.9_FC2.stk16 686 REGPARM 16STACKS gcc-3.3'
I installed this new Kernel for a bigger stack size.
If I need to downgrade to gcc-3.3 please let me know how to do so.
If not, how can I do the modprobe ndiswrapper?
