    I don't understand, what is the problem you are having? Once you install Madwifi, you no longer need NDISwrapper.
    After you get madwifi installed, you should be able to create a new connection using the network tool (system-config-network)

    Skip that step, you do not have an old version running. just continue to the next step.

    I believe for that card you have to load the ath_pci module. Try:
    Code:
    #modprobe ath_pci
    $iwconfig ath0 essid XXXXXX
    $iwconfig ath0 key XXXXX

    umm i'm not sure what the [CODE] is but modprobe is not finding my hardware. looking at this other form another linux newbie vs madwifi - LinuxQuestions.org i think i might be having the same problem but they couldn't fix it either i think

    Did you install the kernel development package? Again, if you have connection:
    Code:
    yum install kernel-devel
    using this got my kernel updated (this guy knows what hes talking about i don't:P)
