I was kind of partially successful in configuring the my wifi card with
ndiswrapper-1.5 along with the 64-bit drivers downloaded from Acer website.
But, not sure if I am facing a slight problem while transferring files from
my desktop to my laptop.
Actually it takes about 12 mins to transfer 6 mb file from my PC to laptop(I
feel this is fairly slow).
I am not sure if this should actually take so long ... it the .
Info about my network@home: a PC connected to Wireless Access Point (which
is Dlink, DL524, supports upto 54 mbps)
over an CAT-5 cable and I connect to my wireless access point from my
laptop. I use WEP 64-with bit key strength between the WAP and laptop.
Is there configuration parameter tweaking required to improve the payload

this thread says to use the 64 bit drivers from the acer
website, not from the linuxant website:
So there are at least two versions of the bmwl564.inf

I am trying to setup a wireless card on Suse 10.0
(x86_64) on a Acer laptop.
Well, I found loads of links that tells what to do using
ndiswrapper ... and
executed all the steps mentioned, but no luck and could
not bring up the
interface. I badly need to get this card running.
My card is an Broadcom BCM4318, Airforce one 54g.
Steps I followed:
1. Download version 1.5 and 1.9 of ndiswrapper and the
64-bit drivers for
2. make and make install of the ndiswrapper
3. depmod -a
modprobe ndiswrapper -> This step initially failed ..
this output something
"FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper.ko*) invalid argument"
Later when I rebooted my system .. could not see this
message any longer ..
and continued with the next steps after ensuring
ndiswrapper was listed ...
lsmod | grep ndiswrapper
5. ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf and
ndiswrapper -l (to list) -> went fine ... it said
hardware and driver found
ndiswrapper -m (to create a alias)
6. #dmsg output:
loadndiswrapper failed (1792)
7. Configure wireless card using YaST .. this was cool
and all went fine
8. rcnetwork restart -> here only my loopback interface
and eth0 restarted
could not see the wlan0 inferface. ifconfig showed
details only about eth0
I sincerely appreciate suggestions, thoughts, help and
thanks in advance.
