The Hardware Hokey-PokeyCopy the Windows .inf driver to your Linux system, then run this command to load the driver in the NdisWrapper, using your real file name of course:
# ndiswrapper -i /wirelessthings/windriver.infVerify the installation:
# ndiswrapper -l
Installed ndis drivers:
windriver.inf driver present
If you're not sure if you have wireless support built into your kernel, there are a couple of ways to check. First look in your kernel config file:
$ grep CONFIG_NET_RADIO /boot/config-`uname -r`Also check your /lib/modules/[kernel version]/kernel/drivers/net/wireless to see if any kernel modules are installed, such as hermes.o, prism54.o, orinoco_cs.o, and so forth.
