ndiswrapper / wireless suse linux problems
Hi guys, I'm a complete newbie with linux so bare with me. I was planning on learning everything on my own and not asking too many questions but I need firefox working so I can browse tutorials ;)
Ok, so my problem is that I cannot get my wireless NIC working. The card is called..
- Dell BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller DHCP
I have installed ndiswrapper and I have located the correct drivers for my card through some online lookup list (b44win.inf, bcm4sbxp.sys). When I type in "ndiswrapper -l " I get..
- b44win driver installed, hardware (14E4:4401) present (alternate driver: b44)
When I type "iwconfig" I get..
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
eth1 IEEE 802.11b/q ESSID: off/any Nickname: "laptop-suse"
Mode: Managed Access Point: Invalid
RTS thr:off Fragment thr: off
Encryption key: 3030-3030-3030-etc Security Mode: open
(rest of the options are 0 ie - link quality, signal level, etc)
sit0 no wireless extensions.
Shouldn't I get a wlan0 instead of eth1?? eth0 is my regular NIC.
Let me know anymore commands I should type for information.
