I've installed ndiswrapper and loaded the .inf file it said hardware and driver present.
I can iwconfig and see my connection but I can't iwlist wlan0 scan, it says no scan results.
I can't seem to set the ESSID, it is called default, I called it like that but it just won't cooperate.
What conf files do I need to change and how do I need to change them so I can go wireless.
My laptop has a build in ipn 2220 network card, I have the correct drivers and they are loaded with ndiswrapper.
It appeared that somehow it didn't function because my kernel does powersaving. I added "pci=noacpi apic" to my grub/menu.lst and now it works fine.
If your laptop has an ipw2200, ie, you have a centrino based laptop, there is a better driver, ipw2200, pacman -S ipw2200.
I don't think it is the same driver. Either way I will try it and report what happened.
I have an acer 1363 with 3000+ athlon sempron processor.
