    Ndiswrapper with Debian


    Does Debian come with ndiswrapper? I need it for my wireless network adapter and to get internet connection with my linux computer. In the past I have had some bad times getting it installed and working in other distrobutions.

    You can't really say what debian 'comes with' because so many people do a net install, then all that there is, is a base. If you install it from apt, then yeah, it will be there, but I doubt that it will be in a base install.

    ndis wrapper is on CD 14 of the set.. so I revise my earlier reply you will want CD1 and CD 14 for your install...

    Well I will probably be getting it from my friend for xmass so that takes care of that. I just hope it takes care of my problem with downloads and stuff freezing my system. That and I want to switch to a more uh standardized distro..
