Wireless LAN up and running

2005-10-27T13:32:00

Got my first wireless LAN up and running yesterday - thanks to the magic of ndiswrapper which makes it possible to use the Windows driver with Linux. My 802.11 card was a DAX-905 PCI which was not mentioned anywhere on the net as supporting Linux, but an `lspci' revealed that the chipset belonged to `Marvell Technologies' and the Windows driver for this chipset was found to be working satisfactorily with ndiswrapper! My wireless access point is of course, the WRT54G which runs Linux! More details regarding configuration in a later post ... Most of my time yesterday was spent trying to get a `ping' - of a different kind, the ultrasonic variety!
