Ubuntu 6.06 and Linksys WMP54Gv4
Hello ALL!! :D
I am a newbie to this thing called Linux. I recently aquired a Dell Dimension 4600 (FREELY given to me) and wanted to test Ubuntu "Dapper Drake". :cool:
My problem is that I can't get the wifi card to work and, due to where this machine is located, there is NO other way to connect it to the internet EXCEPT wirelessly. :cry:
The wireless card is a Linksys WMP54Gv4 (ALSO FREELY given to me so you can see my reluctance to go out and purchase anything else right now.)
I keep reading about something called "ndiswrapper". I have searched through countless howtos, wikis, and forum pages and I guess that I can't understand what it is I'm reading because I can't seem to get ndiswrapper to work correctly.
The driver that seems to work the best is RaLink's RT2500 driver. However, I am MORE than willing to change to another driver if that is what you suggest.
I am becoming frustrated with this but I want to try ONE LAST TIME to make this setup work. I am MORE fed up with "winblows" than I am with trying to get this distro to see my card. :mad:
Can or will anyone with knowledge on this issue help? I will be glad to answer ANY questions that you may need to ask.
THANKS for ALL of your help in advance.
