I had to read all of your posts to see which version
of Vector Linux you are using. I did not find that
information.

I do not know if the version you have has Ndiswrapper
or not. You could try "locate Ndiswrapper" to see if it
is installed. The first link is to Ndiswrapper with the
installation page being first and the driver being No 7
on the second link.

Please more information other than it does not work.

Did you follow the note at the bottom of that?

You can add all the commands you did to make it work at the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.local
Just open the file as root with your fav text edit app and add the commands at the end.
