    Question ar5523 wi-fi usb wirleess adapter

    ar5523 wireleess card
    ndiswrapper version 1.53

    ------------------------------

    I instal frimware and drivers for card, as you can see:

    ndiswrapper -l
    athfmwdl : driver installed
    device (0CF3:0002) present
    net5523 : driver installed
    device (0CF3:0002) present



    but when I " modprobe ndiswrapper " nothing happen.
    what need to hapen when I enter " modprobe ndiswrapper ".

    And when I restart network, it only restart eth0 which is lan card (I am new to linux).

    linux-ygca:/etc/modprobe.d # rcnetwork restart
    Shutting down network interfaces:
    eth0 device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) LAN Controller (rev 01) done
    Shutting down service network . . . . . . . . . done
    Hint: you may set mandatory devices in /etc/sysconfig/network/config
    Setting up network interfaces:
    eth0 device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) LAN Controller (rev 01)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    in yast, network settings here is how it looks for my lan card and usb wirleess:

    lan card:
    82801G (ICH7 Family) LAN Controller
    MAC : 00:16:76:c2:59:1c

    Device Name: eth0
    Started automatically at boot
    IP address assigned using DHCP

    wirleess:
    Unknown Network Device (No hwinfo)

    The device is not configured. Press Edit to configure.

    but when I click on edit button I cant chancge DEVICE TYPE its selected to enthernet, and
    whatever on the rest of tabs replace when I again run network setigns all apear to be blank.

    when I click on add button and do as it write in tutorila, ndiserapper suse tutorial on suse pages,
    I got this:

    Wireless Network Card (No hwinfo)
    Device Name: wlan0
    Started automatically at boot
    IP address assigned using DHCP

    what is (No hwinfo) it seem to me it is not conected to the adapter (no mac addres, I am new to linux )
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    and in hardwer information on my wirleess card (ar5523):
    Class (spec): Unclasssified device
    Class: Unclassified device
    ...
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    info.subsystem = 'usb_device'
    info.linux.driver = 'usb'
    usb_device.product = 'AR5523 (no firmware)'

    Please post more info so we could help, what is your system info
    such as make,model,ram,processor,and so forth.certain laptops require certain drivers to operate correctly this will give a little background as to what might be the problem..

    Exclamation Re: ar5523 wi-fi usb wirleess adapter

    I found this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...G_(ndiswrapper)

    as you can see, the adapter is same as main, but
    his on ubuntu work, and main on suse dont

    And again I will ask, what need to happen when I enter
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    when I enter it nothing happen.
    ---------------------------------------------
    And I think, something in the network settings must be done, because when I add new card it didint associate to
    the hardwer(settings for lan card is associate to the hardwer, in its settings I can see MAC addres and so on,
    but in wireless card settings no).
