Info

My system is debian etch with Linux kernel 2.6.18

Plug the card into the pci slot

  1. Install wpa_supplicant from the debian repository (or DVD). I couldn't compile a couple of newer versions ¿?
  2. download ndiswrapper-1.55
  3. Follow the instructions at http://wiki.debian.org/NdisWrapper
  4. Reboot your system. A new network interface (mine is wlan0) should be availabe at the gnome Network Manager
  5. As root, modify your /etc/network/interfaces file. Mine is
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# Primary network interface
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
       wireless-essid Yourssid
       wireless-mode managed
       wireless-key Your26digitspassword

pre-up wpa_supplicant -B -w -iwlan0 -Dndiswrapper -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

# Secondary network interface (Actually, I do not use it for anything, but it seems important is configured somehow, and this works)
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
       address AnyLANaddressyoucouldget  # Mine is 196.168.1.2
       netmask 255.255.255.0
       gateway YourLANprovideraddress    # Mine is 196.168.1.1
  1. As root modify your /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file. Mine is
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
network={
       ssid="Your ssid"
       scan_ssid=1
       proto=WPA
       key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
       psk="Your64digitsencodedpassword-see wpa_passphrase"
}
  1. Reinitialize your network. /etc/init.d/networking restart
