Hi, hope you will help me on this
I installed VL 5.1 Std. on a Presario 1245.
I use a 3 Com3crusb10075 usb stick to conect to internet with a SMC wifi router.
I used ndiswrapper to install the driver, so, I did:
ndiswrapper -i /home/denis/zd1211u.inf and all went ok
ndiswrapper -l and driver present hardware present
I did ndiswrapper -m to create wlan0 alias

But when i did "modprobe ndiswrapper" it gave the follow error mesagge

error: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than /lib/modules/2.4.29/modules.....
So, I think its kernel problems?Huh? I don't know, I'm new on Vector LInux and dont know how to solve this.
And the problem is that the presario have not internet conection, so, if i have to download something I will have to use another pc to do it.

Can you help me.
Sorry for my bad english spelling

Thank you

after the modprobe you should try "iwconfig" just to see if your wireless is up.
from what i have read you can safely ignore that error.
