    I can't remember the exact wording of the error message returned, but I clicked on every single file on the driver cd for both adaptors and was told by ndiswrapper that there were no drivers that it could recognise/ use.

    I'm thinking of changing to another distro, which is a pity because I've used Mandriva for a couple of months now, and I'm quite happy with it in other ways.

    I compiled ndiswrapper using the following instructions

    make sure that kernel header files are installed.

    then untar the ndiswrapper...
    and do make uninstall
    make install


    be sure that you have uninstalled all the drivers in ndiswrapper. i.e.:

    (in root)

    ndiswrapper -e athfmwdl
    ndiswrapper -e netwg11t

    Then.. download this driver:

    Unzip it, and cd to the extracted files.

    Install the athfmwdl.inf and netwg11t.inf in the normal way. i.e:

    (in root)

    ndiswrapper -i netwg11t.inf
    ndiswrapper -i athfmwdl.inf

    modprobe ndiswrapper

    If you have any problems let me know.
