Thread: wireless card (WMP300N) driver setup setup?

  1. #1

    Default wireless card (WMP300N) driver setup setup?

    I just installed opensuse 11, and I am trying to setup my wireless, Linksys WMP300N, i remember I had it working before in 10.3, but I cannot remember exactly what I did to get it to work.

    All I remember was I installed the driver using ndiswrapper and configure my wireless with some command.

    I tried installing the driver on 11, the steps I took are as follows:

    ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf
    ndiswrapper -l (to make sure its installed)
    modprobe ndiswrapper

    From here I am stuck, I am not too sure what to do. I tried restarting the network services but it does not show up. Am i missing something?

    now you've done that, go to YaST - network devices - network settings & configure there.don't forget to put ndiswrapper in the module section of hardware

    i did this, but no luck. I set the module name to ndiswrapper, but when i go back to network services, under the hardware tab, module name is empty, i try typing in that and no luck.
