All - desperate plea for help here.
Overview Centos 4.5 Kernel 220.127.116.11.0.9.EL with source dell Latitude 810
Im totally at my wits end... Ive tried like mad to get ndiswrapper to
work for my lynksys WPC54GS wireless card. No matter what I try ndis
gives some kind of error on installing the module after about a dozen
attempts 8 kernels, and 5 days- I finally GAVE UP!
So, I install the http://www.linuxant.com/company/ ever$ion (im not
above paying $20 to save me a few wasted days) this program dosnt have
a problem detecting the card, making the lights blink, I cane see the
access point using iwlist scan, I know precisely what the essid is, as
well as the encryption key, BUT now.... the stupid thing cant get an ip
form my dhcp server!!
Please help - some kind of sanity check, Im ready to jump out the
Im up for ANY solution, I can install kernel source.. ndis bla... I just
need some thing that will work. At this point i have an incredibly low
opinion of the developers of ndis - that shouldn't not release such
stuff. Ive followed the dcs to the letter and either the kernal compile
puked... or ndis chokes on some flyshit in a function.... unreal!
Anyway I do have this working on the same laptop but I did it about a
year ago and cnat find the 1.37 version of ndis. At tthis point ndis is
just too picky
