    can't connect wirelessly

    i have a gateway m-1617 with the marvell topdog wireless card. i followed all the instructions in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=704517 and now when i type ndiswrapper -l i get that the driver (netmw14x) is installed and present. however, the lo and eth0 show no wireless extensions, and i get "*NETWORK UNCLAIMED." all the options are greyed out when i try to configure the driver. any ideas on what i should do?

    Did you load the ndiswrapper module?


    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    Re: can't connect wirelessly

    Try the following commands:

    (Lists all your PCI devices)
    Code:
    lspci
    (Lists all your USB devices)
    Code:
    lsusb
    (Lists your hardware and extracts Network entries)
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C -network
    (Lists any wireless network available in your area)
    Code:
    iwlist scan
    Post the output of each one of those commands enclosed by CODE tags (for better code readability).
    This should help us start to diagnose your issue.

    i think the sudo lshw -C -network command helped, because before when i did wlist scan it only gave me results for lo and eth0.

    Code:
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    This command helped you actually not lshw -C network.

    Agreed.
    lshw -C Network only lists network related hardware, buddy.
