Can anyone describe in an easy way how can i install ndiswrapper
and the drivers for my Linksys wireless-G?
I have already downloaded ndiswrapper 1.27 and the drivers for my card.
i am using suse Linux 10.0
also when i use my dial-up connection, kinternet seems to connect by the browser displays that the page cannot be found as if i was in offline mode.

first download ndiswrapper from.
install by unziping the tar file u downloading. Then cd to the directory that u unzipped to in console.
type- make distclean
type- make install
this should install ndiswrapper. to check and make sure after it gets down type ndiswrapper in consol and see if it gives u some comands.
next venture into your windows folder and fine where your wireless windows driver is located. mine was in C:SWLAN/WLAN/ it will be a .inf file.. when u find it copy the whole folder onto ur linux desktop. Next go back into console and install your driver.
type ndiswrapper -i /root/Desktop/Folder with wireless driver in it/driver.inf
replace driver.inf with your driver name.
next see if it installed.
ndiswrapper -l and see what it says.. should be driver installed device present
after u get that.
type modprobe ndiswrapper
type ndiswrapper -m
after this step it should start working.
last go to yast->System->etc bla bla config file ->system->kernel->modules loaded on boot-> and enter ndiswrapper then next-> finish
let us know if u get any errors

Thanks for replying
i had two problems:
first i installed the ndiswrapper 1.28. When i tried to install the drivers of the card i got stuck because every time i pushed the 'enter' button it moved a line down and nothing happened.
then i uninstalled it with the command 'make uninstall'. I don't know if i uninstalled it succesfuly.
From Yast software manager i installed ndiswrapper that was on linux CDs.
I installed syccesfully the drivers but when i typed 'modprobe ndiswrapper'
FATAL: Could not open /lib/modules/2.613-15-default/misc/ndiswrapper.ko :no such file or directory.

ok first off when u entered ndiswrapper -l did it show ur driver saying driver installed device present.
on the FATAL error it sound like u have updated your gcc and not built ur kernel to the version of it. have u done anything to ur gcc or kernel latly?

the drivers where succesfully installed acoording to the ndiswrapper -l command
the distro i use was installed one week ago (i had some problems with SuSE 10.1 so i got back to 10.0) and i haven't changed anything.
Also when i use my network card to connect via cable, again i cannot establish a connection.
