Yes, I did. And I can see the file in the lib/firmware folder...

    Hrm. I noticed there's a newer firmware listed on the p54 site than the link I initially gave. Which firmware did you download?

    The newer one can be downloaded here.

    OK. I downloaded the correct firmware file. I tried again to configure it, but that ndiswrapper keeps opening and I get error messages. What to do now? Is there some way to disable ndiswrapper so it won't load and mess it up?

    You mean the GUI for ndiswrapper is opening?

    The main thing is that the ndiswrapper module doesn't load. You can simply uninstall ndiswrapper and/or you can blacklist the module.

    Code:
    echo "blacklist ndiswrapper" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    I typed the command:
    echo "blacklist ndiswrapper" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    as root. It says bash: sudo: command not found

    Oh, you're using mandriva. For some reason I thought you had Ubuntu. Mandriva doesn't use sudo by default.

    As root just do
    Code:
    echo "blacklist ndiswrapper" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    The two >> are important. Just one will overwrite the file.

    OK. I did the code above. I assume it worked since I did not receive any error messages. Now what?

    Are you still seeing the firmware message in dmesg with the newer firmware?

    I tried to post the results here again, but I got an error message. It is a very long list of gibberish. What should I be looking for in particular?
