64 bit driver different then 32 bit?

I have a Dell USB Wireless 1450 Card that I'm trying to get to work in F7. I have the original driver CD, but when I try to load it through ndiswrapper, it gives me some problem with the 32 bit driver and the x86_64 bit version of F7 I'm running.

Is there something I can do to get it work? Do I need the 64-bit version of the driver or something?

Sidenote: I installed Ubuntu 7.04 and the driver loads properly and connects to my AP, but is unable to get on the internet... so there must be some kind of driver for it right?

I think I may have found a 64-bit version of the driver here: but I can't get an *.inf out of it...

Any help?

You need to install wine to run the installer and tthen the setup program, it's a bit messy, and your effrots may be fruitless so to save you a bit of time I've attached the drivers in a zip file

(You usually just need an inf and sys file from the driver folders, run the ndiswrapper -i command on DELLNIC.inf and pray)

Maybe try the latest version of ndiswrapper-1.46, and compile the source.

remove the driver first using ndiswrapper -e dellnic, and then unistall ndiswrapper using make unnistall (or if you installed via yum, remove using yum)


If it still doesn't work then find out which driver is used in Ubuntu, Fedora should be able to use the same one, if it is open-source then it can (in theory) be compiled to work on x86_64.

I'm in a live cd of Ubuntu but it doesn't use ndiswrapper.. i dont think...

/etc/modprobe.d/ contains an ipw3945 file... is that the wireless?

Anyone know a way to strip the inf file from this ubuntu install ?
