- Jul 6 9:41 AMWith ndiswrapper, more than likely, parts of your OS still won't "see"
the wireless card because it's not defined as an ethernet device
(/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ on Red Hat based-distros). See the
instructions on the ndiswrapper site (Configure Interface section)
about how to control your card:
I have noticed that the NetworkManager and Network Monitor applets
included with Red Hat Enterprise 5 both recognize the wireless card
once I start it up using the instructions above.
