so i have been trying to get the wireless working, and i had reinstalled XP on this computer (still triple booting), but i realized that its not a broadcom, its a dell wireless (so it says) and the wired connection is the broadcom (which works fine)
here is the link to my service tag and the specific drivers for my laptop:http://support.dell.com/support/downloa ... id=&impid=
also, i am trying to figure out how to use ndsiwrapper...i am really new to this, and i cant figure out how to use it.
thanks for any help
So i think it is the broadcom driver cause i took the drivers for it from XP and the inf is: bcmwl5.inf
so when i was trying to get ndsiwrapper to work, and i get to the point of ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf command, it says bash: ndiswrapper: command not found, so now i dont know what to do
i opened up portato and searched for ndiswrapper, and it said it was installed, but it still is giving me the same error, im searching everywhere to try to fix this
any help is appreciated
OK! so i finally got it working, just needed to put sudo before the command and now it works!
i have wireless WOOHOO!
