I installed Mandriva Powerpack on a HP dv6000 today, in a place with no access to a wired internet. I was hoping the wireless internet would be simple to setup, but I guess not.
The wireless setup simply is not working. Any variation of the setup results in the interface trying to come up and finally saying "wlan is down" or something to that effect.
So I tried ndiswrapper. In the software repository, it says that it's installed. When trying to use bcmwl6.inf with bcmwl664.sys in the same directory, it says it can't find the ndiswrapper interface. So I tried from command line and it told me that ndiswrapper was an invalid command. I'm wondering if something got seriously messed up in the install or something.
It's been a long while since I fooled with ndiswrapper but through my clouded memory I'm led to wonder if you might need to run instead:
If still no joy, run:
And see where it is and if it is installed.
Based on the inf file, you have a broadcom card. With rare exception, broadcom cards do not work out of the box in linux because they depend on non-free software. However, it should be fairly simple to get working using native drivers.
