Knoppix/Linux Wireless Setup

Postby acsguitar » Fri Aug 04, 2006 11:46 am

So who here wants to tell me how the heck to get my Knoppix 5.0 to discover my Intel Pro/Wireless Card?

I have no clue
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Depends on which Intel Pro card you have, but several of them can be made to work with the ndiswrapper. Get ahold of the Windows driver for the Card and then try loading with ndiswrapper. Are you actually installing Knoppix or just hotbooting?

Hotbooting.

It looks like this may be the answer but I have to recompile knoppix and for me a newb to linux this seems like a daunting task

Here's what I posted in the Knoppix forum.

I think I'm close but not sure:

Using Knoppix 5.0

Did not autodetect my card.
Network Card Config Tool states ETH0 and eth1 I'm not sure which is which:

Used ndiswrapper through Shell to install w29n51.inf (there is also an w39nf1.inf)

Installing from copied to directory /home/knoppix/Desktop/Drivers/Drivers/w29n51.inf

ndiswrapper -l reads Installed ndis drivers: w29n51 driver present, hardware present

Mod probe ndiswrapper after install reads: FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.17/misc/ndiwrapper.ko): Invalid argument

lspci -v reads for my card:

000:03:03.0 Network Controller: Intel Corporation Pro/Wireless 2915ABC MiniPCI Adapter (rev 05)
Subsystem: INtel Corporation: Unknown device 1020
Flags: medium debsel, IRQ 18
Memory at dcffd000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4k]
Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 2


From here I have no clue what to do. I try Wavelan Configuration but it replies "No Wireless network card found"
