    Dell Inspiron 1525 wireless not working.

    Whenever I download the drivers for the card and use ndiswrapper, it says its not a proper .inf file. All the downloads are just .exes so how can i get a "proper .inf" file to use with ndiswrapper?

    Open a terminal

    R-click on Desktop and Create Directory for the .exe files to go into

    Applications>Accessories>Terminal

    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop/Created_Directory
    cabextract /path/to/file_name.exe

    This is the post I followed to get mine to work a while ago.

    It's for gutsy but I think it should work for Hardy. If that is no help I think you can unzip the .exe file in konsole. If that doesn't work and someone can confirm that it isn't against some rule, I can post the .inf file I used.
