    You are using which version of Slackware? 10.2? 11? If one of these, did you install the other packages that go with the 2.6 kernel from the second cd? Headers and such? Or just sources? Also, can I see the results of:
    Code:
    ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.15.6
    (check in lib/modules to make sure the above is correct.)
    Additionally, I've seen cases where certain versions of ndiswrapper would not compile, and dropping back to a previous version did the trick.

    Installation of Belkin Adapter using ndiswrapper

    Actually I am using Linux version 9. I am actually thinking of updating the entire system to 11 or 12. Once I have done that including some additional reading, I will attempt the process again. The 2.6.15.6 is the current kernel being use. I have realise the there have been some update/patches for this kernel as well. I have some work cut out for me, but am enjoying the journey. Thanks for the response.

    Installation of Belkin Adapter using ndiswrapper

    Actually, I do have Slackware 12 installed. I decided to use ndiswrapper 1.48 which installed perfectly. My issue now is to get my D-link router (which is hook up to my linux computer server) to recognize it.. I tried pinging the server but no response as of yet. I know that I am getting close to completing this wireless project. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    does your router have a firewall controlled by a webserver? a lot of routers do, and i belieev linksys wont even recognize macs at all.
