Hey everyone, just installed SuSE 10.3 and I’m slowly becoming addicted… if only I could get this stupid card working.
I installed the drivers for the WMP54GS… and according to ndiswrapper they work. My only concern is that some people said they were using a bcmwl5.inf driver but when I download the drivers from Linksys the folder contains only a bcmwl5.sys file and the matching wmp54gs.inf file.
Nonetheless, the wmp54gs.inf file installed and ndiswrapper -l says:
driver detected (alternate driver bcm43xx)
It does not say hardware detected though and that seems to be my problem. My wireless lan card does not light up and stays inactive after numerous reboots and configuration tries.
In YaST, it seems that my card is detected when it really isn’t.
Any ideas? I’ve tried blacklisting the bcm43xx, I’ve edited the config files of modprobe to allow for this card… I’m worried that I’ve tried so many different tutorials that my config files are all screwed up now. But despite all I’ve tried I’ve never been able to get this wlan to be active. It works fine in Windows, as I’m dual-boot.
I’m using SuSE 10.3
