Hello Vincent,

many thanks for your respond. I installed the latest xubuntu hardy.... 

I load down the ndisgtk-package from the url you told me and received
a WinZiP-tar-file. After I have copied this zip-archive to my filesystem
I unpacked it. 

Okay, a lot of files, but whow does the show go on. As greenhorn I
missed something like <setup.exe>. Synaptic does not find and display
this files.

Please help me by given me simple instructions to solve my problem.

Otherwise, my understanding of the linux-architecture tells me, that the
systemconfiguration is done with simple textfiles in the related 
(/etc/interfaces and so on). Welcome back to DOS?

Why doesn't exist a supportline, where fools like me can find examples
of running and tested entries in this files.

I'm a certified IBM - specialist for i-series and LotusDomino/Notes. I 
a lot of dominoservers on Linuxsystems like SUSE and REDHAT. Why
xubuntu is so difficult?????
May it be, that the linux-community loss the ideas of linus thorwald and
working hard to develop legions of distributions where anyone runs 

I'm ready for bungee-jumping - without the carbontie.

PS: From Fedora over xubuntu until redhat, all these distributions are 
of the new WindowsVISTA. The installation of VISTA, controlled remote by 
is done within 50 minutes.

since monday I try to configure an DWL-510 to make it run. What I've done 
until no: 

1. Installed "ndiswrapper" - packet from xubuntu-CD. 

2. Installed driver from DLink-CD 

Try installing "ndisgtk" first: 

(You can find it in Applications->System->Add/Remove... by looking for 
"Windows Wireless Drivers". That should help you installing the drivers 
from the CD.

Also, which version of Xubuntu are you using?

The changes takes no effect to the displayed result of iwconfig. 

This morning I tried to change the parameters by <sudo iwconfig wlan0 ...> 

Some changes become true, other changes false. 

My wlan is running good, connects 3 Windows-Computers and give all of them 
to the internet. See the configuration settings below: 

AP-Name: "HAF01" - 
Mode: "Managed" 
Encrypt: "Yes" - 128 bit / WEP

The device may be not correctly embedded to the system. So I can not

I'm a greenhorn in xubuntu and installed it becauseII I have to execute a 
training about it for 
some people in my organisation.
