    Question HELP PLZ!! 32 bit fc6 problems with wirless driver


    Hello, the reason Im posting in FC section and not wireless is because this is specific to Fedora core 6 (because my problem is solved on other linux systems) so I would hope that the fedora people see this rather than all other distros.

    Well. upon being given the advice to change to 32 bit (Which I did) because 64 bit doesnt have many drivers out, here is link:
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/wir...86_64-fc6.html

    I came upon the problem that even though I can install ndiswrapper and get it to install the .ini file in the driver folder i downloaded, my wirless wg111v2 isnt recognized. Here is the lsusb readout:
    Bus 002 Device 006: ID 0846:6a00 NetGear, Inc. WG111 WiFi (v2)
    Device Descriptor:
    bLength 18
    bDescriptorType 1
    bcdUSB 2.00
    bDeviceClass 0 (Defined at Interface level)
    bDeviceSubClass 0
    bDeviceProtocol 0
    bMaxPacketSize0 64
    idVendor 0x0846 NetGear, Inc.
    idProduct 0x6a00 WG111 WiFi (v2)

    And I read that this can be either a prism54 or RLt ? chip. Im not sure as there isnt much on this. Does anyone know if the problem is ndiswrapper and that I should be using another program, or this is purely my wirless kit.

    Thanks a lot
