This is from an earlier post about ndiswrapper:

It worked. Man ifup-dhcp does nothing. I have no idea what it is, but all I know is that when I did a ifup-dhcp wlan0 -o debug,auto, dhcp assigned an address to wlan0 .

Go figure, thanks everyone


I have also had success using ifup-dhcp wlan0, only. I did not have to add the -o debug,auto to get my to get an address.If wlan0 should happen to be unavailable, try ifup-dhcp wlan1. One of them should be there.

By the way, in YaST did you configure your card with module "ndiswrapper"? ndiswrapper -m sets up the modprobe.conf file, and this entry for the card module in YaST should load it at startup.
