View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wireless not working properly

May 10th, 2008, 07:16 PM
Hi guys,

I have a Linksys WMP54G (ver 1) PCI wireless card that I cannot get to work correctly. I have installed ndiswrapper and executed the proper commands, but it seems that the b43 driver is still being used for the card. I also do not have any hardware listed in my hardware manager. Here is the output of:

lshw -C network:

output of lspci:

Any ideas on how to make the wireless work correctly?

I've found that the drive is apparently assigned to the device, using ndiswrapper -a. But, the light on the device will not light up and it will not connect to any wireless network.
