Hi, I'm kinda new to linux... I've been working on
trying to get my ADM8211 chipset Wireless NIC to work
with Debian 2.6.8 Kernel (Sarge).
Ndiswrapper is installed and works fine apparently,
but modprobe returns the error:
FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found
ndiswrapper -l returns
netadm11 driver present, hardware present
it's apparently not creating the ndiswrapper.ko that
modprobe needs, ndiswrapper -m returns
modprobe config already contains alias directive
lsmod doesn't show anything in the way of ndiswrapper.
can you help please??
It sounds like you are missing the actual ndiswrapper driver ("kernel
$ modprobe -l ndiswrapper
Are you installing Ndiswrapper by downloading the source from the
Ndiswrapper web site, or are you using the (most excellent) Debian packages?
Rumour has it that if you install 'module-assistant' then running
'module-assistant auto-install ndiswrapper' will download compile and
install everything you need.
If you'd like to do it manually, install 'ndiswrapper-source' and
