    Wireless PCMCIA Adapter

    I would like to buy a wireless adapter that is completely linux and windows compatible. Since pretty much every card works with windows, what PCMCIA wireless adapters work with Mandrake 10?

    P.S., I have a Microsoft MN-720 now, and I don't think that'll work with Linux. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I'm not sure about this, but i think that the Motorola WN825G will work...I've got one and I think it works. I'll try it and and get back to you.

    Ok, I found a program that emulates Microsoft's networking API. But I can't install it. I run the command this is what I get
    root@[mydomain-changed-to-protect-myself] make install
    make -C driver install
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/admin/Linux/ndiswrapper-0.11/driver'
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/build SUBDIRS=/home/admin/Linux/ndiswrapper-0.11/driver \
    EXTRA_VERSION= modules
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
    make: Entering an unknown directorymake: Leaving an unknown directorymake[1]: *** [default] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/admin/Linux/ndiswrapper-0.11/driver'
    make: *** [install] Error 2

    did you do the steps in this order?

    uncompress (depends on the type of file)
    configure ./configure
    make make
    install make install

    That's what was weird, there was no config or configure file. Nor was there a make file. I had to go straight to the make install. I guess that's my problem.

    I found this in their install readme.

    * You need a recent kernel (at least 2.6.0 or 2.4.20) with source.
    * Make sure there is a link to the source from the modules directory:
    '/lib/modules/<VERSION>/build' should be a link to the kernel
    source, where <VERSION> is the version of the kernel you are running.
    * Some vendors ship ndiswrapper in their distributions. Either use
    it or make sure you remove it before installing ndiswrapper by
    That whole "/lib/modules/<VERSION>/build" is the error I'm getting. So how do I make a shortcut for my kernel source?

    im not positive on this but I think you can make a link like this:

    ln &#91;firstfile/directory&#93; &#91;secondfile/directory&#93;
    Note that the first two letters are LN and that there is a space between the two files. You also don't need to include the brackets. just the two file names spereated by a space.
