    Yet another Wireless Problem....


    ok, went ahead and repartitioned the laptop and now I'm dual booting winxp and linux (zenwalk)... and I'm having a ***** of a time getting my wireless network to connect... heres the specs...

    installed windows driver with ndiswrapper...
    blacklisted alternate driver bcm43xx
    rmmod bcm43xx


    modprob ndiswrapper

    when I iwlist wlan0 scan

    it sees my wireless network,

    but when I do the command dhclient

    I get bash:command not found

    I can't find the package dhclient3, it is listed in the netpkg app, but it isn't listed in the file system...

    Also when I use the gui wifi-radar it sees my wireless router, but when I attempt to connect to it, it tells me couldn't acquire IP address...



    Next when I do Dmesg

    yesterday I was getting the message
    the last 3 lines are ndiswrapper key 1 not assigned
    but nowthats gone away...


    Somebody Please Help...
