    looking for a driver that doesnt freeze the system


    Hello all. I'm proud to announce that I'm finaly online with Knoppix 3.8.1 and ndiswrapper! Although it seems that when one problem is fixxed, another arises. As we all know, ndiswrapper is a great tool. I love it. But since it loads Windows drivers, it can get flaky. I am able to surf the internet for about an hour and 30 minutes before Knoppix crashes and the system locks up. I have no chioce but to reset the computer. I read in the ndiswrapper disclaimer that Windows drivers can cause the system to lock up. The ndiswrapper also says to use drivers that were on the website, but I havent found any for my model. I'm using the ones on my CD that came with the card- the WinXP ones. My wlan card is a Belkin F5D6001 ver 2 11mbps wireless card. I'm currently typing this message on Knoppix. Does anyone know of good drivers for this card that doesnt cause the system to freeze? Thanks in advance!

    The Linux drivers for this modem only work from 15 min to about one hour. At which time, causes the modem to go into a re-sync stage and it likes to do other strange things. All of the listing I found for the modem say it is Non-compatible, sorry.
    Research, research, research before you walk the plank.
