    lspci really returns nothing? Did you try is as /sbin/lspci?

    As it stands, I don't see a wireless device recognized at all. You are loading ndiswrapper, which is a program to use a windows xp wireless driver under linux.

    What is the output of ndiswrapper -l?

    I had installed windows driver and one atheros driver by ndiswrapper
    but I think I am using windows 7, so it is giving problem,otherwise forums say that xp's driver work well.

    I had already wasted a lot with this,I think of switching to Fedora 11, with more better GUI and a great wifi support. It will help.As I am a newbie so It doesn't matter to me to use any kind of Linux ,after all it is an linux

    Yes, installing a newer version of Linux is recommended. Whether Fedora 11, Suse 11.2 or Ubuntu 9.04. Newer versions will have better wireless support. Then run the script again, and post the output.

    And PLEASE don't install NDISwrapper until we know what you have, and can make some recommendations.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.
