Installing the ndiswrapper Driver into the Kernel

linux:~/Win2K # ndiswrapper -m linux:~/Win2K # modprobe ndiswrapper linux:~/Win2K #

The ndiswrapper -m command creates the module configuration and an alias for your wireless network adapter so that the ndiswrapper module is always loaded when you need to access your wireless network card.

Now that the ndiswrapper driver has been installed, you can access your Windows wireless card like any other Linux-enabled driver.

To make this configuration permanent, you can set up the card using YaST's Network Card module (yast2 lan), and in the hardware tab for the card's configuration, choose or type ndiswrapper under Module Name.
