To get my Belkin PCMCIA wireless card to work. I’m pretty sure I need bcm4306 drivers (Broadcom) but although I have a Windows installation that works fine with the drivers, they won’t work in openSuSe. So, I tried installing with:
ndiswrapper -i /media/disk/…file.inf
and it didn’t show anything useful; it just said:
install/manage Windows drivers for ndiswrapper
usage: ndiswrapper OPTION
YaST2 picks up BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller, but it is greyed out unless I choose ‘Traditional Method with ifup’ under 'Network Setup Method (tab: ‘Global Options’).
So, could anyone please:
guide me through how to install the drivers if I have the right ones

It is even easier than that as that method forces you to compile a
program that openSUSE already provides.
Do you have Internet access in Linux? If so, then open a console and enter
If you do not have Internet access in Linux, then go the the “Welcome”
sticky at the beginning of the wireless forum where there are
instructions on downloading the necessary file in some other system,
and installing the firmware in Linux.
