I have an old buffalo WLI2-PCI-G545 model wireless card and Ubuntu won't recognize it. I was wondering if there was some way I could rig it to work. Thanks.
From Ubuntu Forums Load the driver into ndiswrapper: Code:
sudo ndiswrapper -i /media/cdrom0/Bin/Driver/CBG54/WIN2000/netg54s.inf
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
If not, it might not be called wlan0 (I don't see why not, but my card doesn't do this right either). The way to check is to list all the cards: Code:
and look for the MAC address listed as "hwaddr". According to what you posted, the address you should look for is 00:16:01:7d:ea:7e. If that isn't in there, it's not working.
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
