HI,

I try to run various PCMCIA-Cards on my laptops (with CenTOS 5.2) . My ZYXEL is working very well with ndiswrapper an the original-win-driver.

My other cards

ASUS WL-106gM
and
BELKIN F5D8013

won't work with ndiswrapper 'cause after a "modprobe ndiswrapper", my system frezze! ( And I've no idea, why my system is crashing.

So I heard 'bout this project here and I hope, it will help me.

MY first question(s)

How can I check the chipsets of my wlan-cards?
Is it possible to use this cards on my CentOS 5.2 based laptops?

Thanx 4 help!

ttyl,

Well obviously you know it is a Ralink card since you are posting this here, so the question would be what is the name of the windows driver you are trying to use with ndiswrapper? The name of the windows driver is probably the same as the Linux driver, so that should make it very easy for you to determine which driver you need.

Hello IvD!

O.K. the ASUS card uses tmimo3P.inf, so I assume, that this card won't work with rt2x00
BUT, the Belkin card uses rt2860.inf, so I hope this card will work with my system.

Isn't it so, or is it a wooden way for me poor (l)user? ?

Well rt2860.inf is the rt2860 chipset ( roll ) and currently the in-kernel rt2800pci driver for that chipset is under development (but not yet released). You can download the official Linux driver from www.ralinktech.com
