hi, now i tried again:

ndiswrapper still gives me "invalid driver".

then i've recompiled kernel again to make sure everything is ready for ipw3945,
after that i did

Code: Select all

/bin/sh /usr/portage/net-wireless/ieee80211/files/remove-old /usr/src/linux
and emerged ipw3645 and did modules-update and after that

Code: Select all

modprobe ipw3945
this time it worked

but when i typed "dep -a" i've got "unknown command".

does anybody have any idea what might be wrong?

i have nothing against ndiswrapper but it cannot recognize the xp driver downloaded directly from intel's site
and i do need my wi-fi under linux also.
