    Re: cant see wifi

    ive been all over the place with this wifi ive got net8185 installed with ndiswrapper and it is good all the way thru ndiswrapper -v when i do iwconfig it wont ive been trying out diff distro's all have the same issue. right now im working with simplymepis 7 amd64. lsmod shows ndiswrapper0. im not sure if thats right should it show ndiswrapper net8185 ?

    also there was a path to the network folder to check this i have no network folder. guess that makes since I have no network. Ive read were others say they have this wireless card working.

    Got it Kubuntu 8.04 win xp_2k wireless driver
