    ndiswrapper help


    ok, so today my friend decided he wanted linux on his computer, i came over and installed zenwalk. Everything except his wireless is working, ndiswrapper claims the driver is loaded and the hardware is present. i type modprobe ndiswrapper and no errors come up. then i type dmesg it shows that ndiswrapper is loaded but not wlan0, what should i do?

    Have you rebooted? Or at least logged out and logged back in? That's what always worked for me..

    Did you make sure ndiswrapper is associated with the interface with
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -m
    ?

    Also, is the interface present in the network configuration file (/etc/network/interfaces) ?
