Did the VLwifi, and it probed for hardware.
Asked if I wanted to insert a Windows driver into ndiswrapper. Don't know what will happen or if the .inf I have here is all I need. So I clicked cancel.
Result: 'no wireless card found'.
I did follow the how-to
up to the command:modprobe module-name
(I used bcm43xx)
I was uncertain if what I found was in fact the module name, and the result of modprobe was only:laptop:/~
The how-to states I should not get an error, which I didn't... I think. But I thought I would get more than just the prompt, so it feels like an error anyhow.
While typing, I stumbled upon 'System Profile and Benchmark'.
There I find: bcm43xx Broadcom BCM43xx wireless driver as the first item under Kernel Modules.
In all my searching for the module name, I found the site mentioned in my previous post. But if indeed the situation I described just now qualifies as "no error", then I guess I should just follow the how-to (as it seems to be written in clear noob-nees).
Please confirm or point the right way if possible.
