Help with belkin 54g notebook card!-SOLVED

Postby deka316 » Wed Apr 22, 2009 8:33 pm

Hi, I just installed linux mint 6 xfce today and it runs sweet on my Mpc transport X1000, I have a problem though. I installed my belkin 54g notebook card using it's driver cd and ndiswrapper and the lights are blinking on it, but when I click on the Wicd Manager on the bottom right hand corner it says "no wireless networks found" I am also using ethernet right now but when I used Linux Mint 6 Main Editon it still listed the wireless networks around me. Am I missing something? I use my laptop alot when I travel and really need to get my wireless working, please help! :?

You probably need to change the preferences to use the correct wireless interface.(wlan0, eth1, etc)
May also need to change the WPA Supplicant Driver to ndiswrapper.
