    Wireless Card Problems


    I installed Ubuntu a few days ago, dual boot with XP, on my Dell Inspiron 8100. I am trying to get a Linksys WPC54GX to work, but not having any sucess. I have installed ndisgtk and installed netani.inf for the driver (took several tries - was returning "invalid driver"). I have run the following scripts, unfortunately I don't know enough about this yet to solve my problem.

    Note: Although the card seems to be recognized, the power light on the card does not light up.

    Here is the output:
