    It seems like a popular problem, and I'm still trying to figure it out =P.

    I would, if I were you, look at some other threads that might have more answers for your specific distro

    Well, I'ma try something else, like maybe SuSE, or something.

    Good luck,

    hey! linux is waaay more advanced than windows, I'm having problems with ndiswrapper in slackware but it doesn't mean linux isnt advanced. im a windows user and have been for a long, long time. i dont know anything about linux, only some stuff and slowly slowly I learn things just like I did for windows, take this opertunity and learn how to install ndiswrapper.

    You do have the kernel sources installed right? and ndiswrapper and other stuff come on the cd/dvd. If problem still presists, try the 32 bit version of SuSE, cos some programs still haven't been properly ported or tested with the 64 bit version.

    I didn't want to look like a forums n00b too. So, I'm going to write my "similiar" problem in here.

    I have a wireless card.

    US Robotics 5420 but it doesnt have linux drivers, which is pretty obvious. now I know where the driver file is located in my windows system, all I need to do now is install ndiswrapper on my linux system and apply the win driver.

    but i have NO CLUE on how to do any of this! :/

    is there anyone that can help me?

    Follow these instructions and you should be fine. Be sure to have the kernel sources and wireless-tools installed also.

    does an error or a system hangup happen when you try a modprobe ndiswrapper?
    try an iwconfig command to see if it is working, for the light to come on, power saving need be off for the card.[/code]

    "Operation not permitted"

    I got this error when upgrading from Mandrake 10.0 to Mandriva 2005 (Mandrake 10.2). I had my wlan working with ndiswrapper, but it stopped working after the upgrade, giving me this message.

    The solution was to remove the drivers with "ndiswrapper -e driver" and re-install (with "ndiswrapper -i driver.inf"). This will remove the compatibility errors that are keeping ndiswrapper from allowing itself to insmod.

    hope this helps.
