Hi CH,

Some tutorials and info can be found here:





For some reason most leave out the part where the wrapped driver is
associated with the hardware (a pci thing usually).  This is done by, if
memory serves, doing an:

lspci -v

Note your wireless hardware in the output then do an:

lspci -n

Find the entry by comparing the two outputs and note the number of the form
XXXX:XXXX (see ndiswrapper -h for a bit of reminder).  Then do an:

ndiswrapper -d XXXX:XXXX driver

Where the XXXX:XXXX are the numbers located above (your devid) and driver
was described by a previous:

ndiswrapper -l

Which found your successfully wrapped driver (be careful of spelling and
case so do the ndiswrapper -l).

I hope this helps!
