I just loaded SuSe 10.0 on my laptop and tried using a Airlink WiFi card with no luck. Anyone has any luck tring to get one of these card working with this version of Suse?
I used Yast and it found the card but would turn the card on, said it needed to reboot. Tried rebooting and still no Wifi card.
Look into ndiswrapper (I think that it should be installed) It will load the windows drovers for your card. Try that and tell me what happens
Okay, I looked everywhere on my machine and still don't see ndiswrapper. I downloaded a copy of the program and extracted it to my home file. I can't seem to get the program working.
I tried loading this program the way that the instructions said to but for some reason it didn't take.
Can someone walk me through this please.
Launch yast, search for ndiswrapper, it should be there. No need to install it from source. Also, follow this tutorial
Okay, I loaded the package but now what, I can't see the program anywhere. I have the INF file loaded onto my computer also, sitting in my home directory but really not sure what to do with it from this point forward, can someone help.
ndiswrapper is run from the command line as root. read the tutorial i posted before, it explains what to do. Scroll down a bit to the part where it starts using ndiswrapper -i whatever.inf....
Also, you need more than just the *.inf file. Copy over the whole driver's directory which came on the cd with the card.
Okay here is what I got
I am in the Root Shell - Konsole. I started ndiswrapper -i but I'm not sure if I should be using link/to. The files .cat, .sys, and .inf are located in my home directory. I tried several combination and I keep getting no such file or directory.
My home directory is located /home/tim/airlink which contains all the files i need.
you needd to type in
ndiswrapper -i /home/tim/airlink/filename.inf
Thanks for the help
I figured out how to direct to the file that I needed loaded but once I loaded everything ndiswrapper came back and said that the drivers were wrong. So I'm back to square one.
What I realized is that I probably should seek out hardware that's a little bit easier to configure. Nothing I have done will allow me to start this WiFi adapter.
Is there some PCMCIA Card that works right off the bat using Suse 10.0? I think I should start there first.
Please advise. Thanks
