    some newbie questions on ndiswrapper


    Hi experts,
    i have install the ndiswrapper on suse linux eterprise desktop 10 sp1.

    these are the steps i follow
    ndiswrapper -i xxx.inf
    ndiswrapper -l (yes, the result is install and hardware present)
    next ndiswrapper -m
    now when i type modprobe ndiswrapper ,is it that after entering that command with no errors prompting out, the network manager will have a new line call wireless connection?

    and when i type ifconfig, wlan0 will appear too?

    First of all have a look at the ndiswrapper installation howto Before modprobe you have to type
    depmod -a
    After typing "modprobe ndiswrapper" the windows wireless driver will be loaded. Typing
    iwconfig
    should output you the available wireless network interface. Then you will have to configure the interface either using command line or your distro's tools.

    type
    lsmod |grep ndiswrapper
    post the output here. If needed type
    rmmod ndiswrapper
    in order to remove the module and try to reinstall it, don't forget the depmod -a. If you install it type
    iwconfig
    and see if any wireless interfaces come up. If yes the drivers have successfully loaded and then proceed configuring the interface. If any problems/questions post back.

    This is the result of lsmod |grep ndiswrapper

    Code:
    DellCM:/media/IMATION/Wireless/r115321/driver # lsmod |grep ndiswrapper
    ndiswrapper           175860  0
    usbcore               127876  6 ndiswrapper,usb_storage,usbhid,ohci_hcd,ehci_hcd
    Is that normal or correct?
    try the rmmod, dpmod -a , then iwconfig.. still no results...

    What can i do next?
    thanks
