Ndiswrapper works on initial setup, but fails after reboot.
I'm using the most recent version of DamnSmallLinux, and when I initially install it to a USB drive it works great. I can modify files, get online via wifi, etc. But when I reboot, my network card stops working. Nothing shows up in iwconfig/ifconfig except the loopback and ndiswrapper -l is empty. I'd used the ndiswrapper script that comes with DSL to set up the card initially, but when I do it again with the same exact settings I get 'Connection failed'. Doing it via the script and also doing it manually puts the driver in the 'ndiswrapper -l' list, but it still doesn't show up in iwconfig/ifconfig. Any ideas on what I should do?

The best way to set up NDISwrapper is through the good ol' terminal. To see the commands that are available, enter this in a terminal (as root).
# ndiswrapper install/manage Windows drivers for ndiswrapper usage: ndiswrapper OPTION -i inffile install driver described by 'inffile' -a devid driver use installed 'driver' for 'devid' -r driver remove 'driver' -l list installed drivers -m write configuration for modprobe -ma write module alias configuration for all devices -mi write module install configuration for all devices -v report version information where 'devid' is either PCIID or USBID of the form XXXX:XXXX, as reported by 'lspci -n' or 'lsusb' for the card
# modprobe ndiswrapper # modprobe ndiswrapper -m # modprobe ndiswrapper -ma # modprobe ndiswrapper -miPaul
