    Default PCIID 14E4:4315 solution in kernel 2.6.32 or some hack exist

    Hi
    I have tried to use the method described on this page
    Ndiswrapper - openSUSE
    since my wifi was not working or say being detected in Open Suse 10.3

    lscpi -vnn gave following output
    PCIID 14E4:4315 Broadcom USB 4310 Wifi

    this blog gave some information
    Colin's Blog: How to install Broadcom BCM4310 USB controller driver in Ubuntu
    regarding the windows driver .The windows driver is here
    http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R174291.exe
    after I unzipped the R174291.exe and went to DRIVER_US
    there was bcmwl5.inf file which is the required file as per the information given on the blog.
    So I did
    root@localhost root]#ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf
    root@localhost root]#ndiswrapper -l
    showed me that device is present and it loaded the said file
    but
    root@localhost root]#modprobe ndiswrapper
    give error

    FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.
    I am stuck up after this point some one please help
    I had compiled the latest stable kernel 2.6.31 but it was futile you can see clearly on this link
    b43 - Linux Wireless
    that the driver for linux for mentioned PCIID is under development in kernel 2.6.32
    but still my some friends have ubuntu installed and fedora installed on which the same device is working properly so can some one help me out to find a solution?
