    Exclamation Peak Wireless PCI Not Working!


    hello everybody! newbie here so please forgive me...
    i've tried searching on the forums but cannot seem to find the answer to my problem
    i'm running suse 10.1 for the past 2 days, and i've tried and tried to get my Peak Hardware 802.11g Wireless 54Mbps Cardbus Adapter working. This is an internal PCI card.
    I've been on: http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...index.php/List , found the driver, downloaded it from my pc (and transferred it to the linux computer through a USB pen drive),
    i've used the following tutorial: http://en.opensuse.org/Wireless_Netw...d_Installation , yet it does not seem to be working.

    The driver is a .exe file when i download it, and ndiswrapper says it's an 'invalid driver!'.
    I also tried changing it to a .zip file and installing that through ndiswrapper, that also did not work. AND i've tried just installing the .INF file but still no success at all.
    I do not have my cd anymore as i have misplaced it, otherwise i would have tried that too.

    Could somebody PLEASE help me out and point me in the right direction on what to do, or if there is a link to somewhere i may not have looked to find the solution.

    Thank you in advance,

    -fuzz

    Did you take out the .sys and .inf file and put them in the same directory? Also maybe try running the comand lspci, and post back. It should tell you which chipset your wifi card is using. There may already be a native driver in linux for it.

    i'm sorry but you're gonna have to bear with me... i'm a COMPLETE newbie, i have no idea what lspci is
    also, when i tried installing the .inf file from a folder it didn't install
    i had to drag it to the desktop for it to install but then when i checked using ndiswrapper -l
    it said 'invalid driver!'
