    fc8 wireless autoconnect?


    Installed ndiswrapper to use my macbooks inbuilt wi-fi (madwifi didn't seem to want to work with WPA networks)

    Only thing is the module isn't loading on bootup and I cannot connect to the wireless lan, also Networkmanager wants me to unlock the password store before it can try and connect.

    how do i set it so the ndiswrapper module loads on bootup and secondly can I set it so that NetworkManager can access the stored keys without me having to unlock the "keyring"

    Code:
    ndiswrapper -m
    should do it. If not try
    ndiswrapper -ma
    For the second question try system-> administration-> keyring manager-> applications-> nm-applet and check all permissions. This might do the trick

    I wrote the modprobe command into a start script in the end...
    any reason to change it?
