    Not installing


    I've followed the instructions listed at http://www.linuxforums.org/network/w...and_linux.html yet my card still isn't working. "ndiswrapper -l" reports that the driver is installed. So I type "modprobe ndiswrapper" and nothing happens. No lights on the card light up. When I try to scan for networks it says that there is no device capable of scanning. i restarted ... still no luck. I ran "ndiswrapper -e AIRPLUS" and re did the installation and still no luck. This may be of importance: When I run "lspci" my card isn't listed. What should I do ???? This is ridiculously frustrating.

    The name of your card and the name of the chipset are most likely different. If it is a USB wireless, lspci would not show it.

    If it is an internal wireless, copy and post the output of this command:
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    For usb:
    Code:
    lsusb
    When you use NDISwrapper, if there is a native Linux driver already loading, they will conflict with each other and not work. To display a list of driver modules that are loaded, copy and post the output of this command:
    Code:
    lsmod

    The card is not internal or usb. I ran modprobe yenta-socket before using lsmod.

    Are you using a PCI to PCMCIA adapter card? I recently purchased one, but have not installed it yet. I don't yet have any knowledge on using one.

    I don't yet know what type of wireless chipset you have. Most likely because it does not recognize the card yet.

    What is the output of lspci -nn ?
