View Full Version : editing modprobe(?)

16th April 2007, 10:00 PM
Hello ^^

Everytime I boot I have to enter modprobe ndiswrapper before I can get my wireless internet to work. I'm running Fedora Core 6 (2.6.20-1.2944.fc6 kernel), with this wireless card: Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PC.

This is what I've done:
Blacklist bcm43xx (the Linux driver that I was way too slow)
Install ndiswrapper and the (right) driver (-i, -l, -m, modprobe)

It worked after that, except for that I have to enter modprobe ndiswrapper everytime I boot.
I also get an error during booting: Device eth1 does not seem to be present. Delayed initialization.

Add this line to /etc/modprobe.conf
alias wlan0 ndiswrapper

If that does not work then add this to /etc/rc.local
modprobe ndiswrapper

Thanks, adding modprobe ndiswrapper fixed the problem.
