Postby DarinB on Mon Nov 12, 2012 11:29 am

I am trying to install an 11b WLAN pci adapter MW302P
on an hp a6114x pc.

the adapter light is on. the device is present in currently installed devices column. I installed the (i hope proper inf) still nothing present on the next scree to set up the wifi?

any where to go from here?

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

The forum was not working well yesterday so I didn't manage to respond by then.

There is indeed no native Linux driver for this device, you were right to add the .inf file in Windows Wireless Drivers. Please install the ndiswrapper-dkms package from Software Manager, then it should work.

If not please post the output of inxi -N and sudo mintwifi.

Then please run this:
Code: Select all
sudo ndiswrapper -l


Do you already have ndiswrapper-dkms installed in Software Manager?
