    Question What am I doing wrong


    First I'm running Unbuntu 6.10
    Second I have a Linksys Wireless-G USB wireless adapter (WUSB54G).
    Plugged it in and went to:
    system > administration > networking
    and entered everything and didn't work so I went into terminal typed in:
    iwconfig and got:
    lo no wireless extensions
    wmaster0 IEEE 802.11g Frequency: 2.412 GHz
    RTS thr:off Fragment thr=2346 B

    wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSID:"<my name>"
    Mode:Managed Frequency: 2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
    RTS thr:off Fragment thr=2346 B

    so next I installed ndiswrapper ver 1.22 with no problems followed the instructions for installing the .inf file and when I do ndiswrapper -l
    i get: rt73 invalid driver!
    what am I doing wrong?
    I've been searching in the forums all night looking for answers any help would be great!

    First, did you get both the .inf AND the .sys Windows files for your specific card? You need both on your Linux installation. They both should be in the same directory. It's usually preferable to use the drivers that are on the card's driver/install CD/DVD.

    Then do ndiswrapper -i <nameof>.inf. Followed by ndiswrapper -l. Hopefully, the result will be hardware present:driver prresent. Sometimes there willl be an alternate driver that the kernel loaded at boot time. The kernel-loaded driver can be blacklisted to avoid driver conflict.
