Using Fedora 8 x86_64, installed Ndiswrapper and used the XP (64-bit) drivers for my Belkin USB Wireless N device. I ran iwconfig and the output was:
[root@localhost ~]# modprobe ndiswrapper
[root@localhost ~]# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.

This is the network I wish to use. When I go into Network Configuration, however, I only see eth0 (my ethernet card, which I can't use because I don't have a wired connection at my current location). I don't see anything for eth1 or wlan0 or anything of that sort, and of course when I try to load a web browser, it says there's no connection. If anyone could advise I'd appreciate it. I'm fairly new to Linux if you can't tell.
