    Did you do:
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper -l
    after installing the .inf file? Did it say "hardware present? After that, did you do:
    Code:
    /sbin/depmod -a
    Then:
    Code:
    /sbin/modprobe ndiswrapper
    To initiate the driver? If having done that, did you configure your connection with:
    Code:
    system-config-network
    ?

    OK, let's see if ndiswrapper is present. From the command line, do:
    Code:
    /sbin/lsmod
    Is ndiswrapper present there?

    ? You are trying to get a wireless card going without it being in the computer? What am I missing here? Is this a PC card for a notebook?

    EDIT: OK, I Froogled it and see that it is. You can't configure the card for the Internet unless it is "plugged" in.
