    help with ndiswrapper


    Upon trying to install ndiswrapper, I typed in 'urpmi ndiswrapper' and it said it was installed. After that, I tried to type in 'modprobe ndiswrapper' and the following text appeared:

    FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.17-5mdv/kernel/3rdparty/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko.gz): Invalid argument

    Does anyone know how to fix this so that I can use my wireless card? I am using Mandriva 10.1, and my wireless card is an Intel 3945abg.

    You don't need ndiswrapper for your card, have you tried
    Code:
    modprobe ipw3945

    Set it up.

    BTW you are running these commands as root aren't you?

    Yeah, I'm root... how do I set it up? After I type it in, nothing happens, it just goes to another line...

    That's good, it means there were no errors.

    Setup:
    iwconfig wlan0 essid <essid>
    iwconfig wlan0 key s:<key>
