Unable to find ndiswrapper interface - Establish Wireless Connection
I just installed Mandriva Powerpack 2010 on a Dell Inspiron mini 10 and I can't make a wireless connection.
I downloaded a wireless driver from dell.com and then went to Configure Your Computer -> Network & Internet -> Set up new network interface -> Wireless(Wi-Fi)-> Use a Windows driver (with ndiswrapper) and then selected the .INF file of that driver.I got this message: " The selected device has already been configured with the ssb driver.Do you really want to use a ndiswrapper drive? When I choose Yes I get the message:"Unable to find network interface for selected device(using ndiswrapper driver)" and "Unable to find ndiswrapper interface". For No it displays only "Unable to find network interface for selected..." .
If I type
in the terminal I get :
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
I get :
bcmwl5 : driver installed
device (14E4:4315) present (alternate driver: ssb)
How can I fix this problem so I can connect to a wireless connection?
I'm pretty new to Linux and could really use some help with this!
