I just purchased the download of the 5.9.1 soho and am having the same problem
I've had with all distros attempted on this Toshiba Satellite laptop: no wireless.
This time, though, the problem is that after getting the Realtek 8187b driver installed
into ndiswrapper, I get the error message (on modprobe nidswrapper) that it does
not exist (that nidswrapper does not exist, lsusb shows my wireless device).
And, of course, I get "no wireless devices found" when attempting Vwifi.
I am happy to support Vector and other distros, but at some point I would like to
be able to use Vector on this laptop on the internet.
The steps leading up to the "FATAL module ndiswrapper not found" all went well as
if ndiswrapper was loaded and working fine. But as soon as I attempted to load
ndiswrapper I got that fatal message.
Can anybody help with this?
