Hi all,

I installed ndiswrapper and followed the instructions at:
http://www.linuxforums.org/network/w...and_linux.html. No dice. My rt2500 card was unable to connect. So I uninstalled the drivers (or so I thought) and used the system commercially available from www.linuxant.com. This worked...but...when I rebooted my computer the old drivers were back. I tried to remove the old drivers in 'Network Manager' to no effect. I disable network manager and type:

mdjlap:/home/m036297 # iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

The drivers installed by ndiswrapper were called 'ra0'. The drivers installed by linuxant were called wlan0. How do I completely remove ra0? Or, alternatively, how do I figure out what the real problem is so I can get wireless working and on to my paid job?

Thanks!
