    Smile 3Com 3CRGPC10075 Wireless card - got it working

    I switched out my old 22Mbps SMC card in my backup laptop running Hardy Heron for a 3Com from my other laptop.

    The SMC was detected nicely and worked for a long time, but I got a bit tired of the speed limitation.

    The 3Com card did not do anything at all when I first put it in. I did a bit of searching and found that there are no drivers for it and ndiswrapper is an option.

    I downloaded the 3Com drivers from here:
    http://webprd1.3com.com/swd/jsp/user...l_download.jsp

    I got there from the main 3Com page.

    I used Archive Manager to extract the Driver folder.

    Then, I used Synaptic to install ndisgtk,ndiswrapper-common and ndiswrapper-utils-1.9

    The graphical install of the 3Com driver worked perfectly.

    I am now able to use graphical configuration for wireless networks, where I had to use command line for the SMC card. I didn't think that was a driver issue.
