I'm currently using Ndiswrapper for my wireless usb card that uses the RTL8187B Chipset on Ubuntu 8.04. To get myself to connect I have to run "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper" everytime. Is there a way I can connect automatically?

I forget where,but there is a config file you can edit and put that command in.

I believe it would be

sudo gedit /etc/modules

put there, but I am no expert by any means!

I attempted to put "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper" there, but it didnt work. Thanks though. Any other others thoughts?

I got this to work by simply putting "ndiswrapper" at the end of /etc/modules.

Glad to hear it, I was going to write you back suggesting this after further reading in the threads, but you figured it out, feels better that way.

My problem was that I was putting "modprobe ndiswrapper" instead of just "ndiswrapper".

That is what I thought after further reading. Thanks for the confirmation
