keep your LinkSys WMP54G!
I tired some different cards and they didn't work on my Pentium 90, so I
returned to the WMP54G.
If lspci reports a unknown device it is reporting at least something,
that is a very good sign!
The LED on the back of the card seems to have a double function.
If you think it isn't lid watch it while loading ndiswrapper (modprobe
Mine is getting even darker when I load the module. I think that is to
pepare it for have it blinking during data transmission (but that is
just a guess, right now)
If I unload ndiswrapper (rmmod ndiswrapper) the LED is getting more
Try one of Dell's windows driver from the
NDISwrapper-SupportedChipSet-Page for 14E4:4320 (compare this to your
lcpci output ;-).
Download this file http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R63259.EXE
unpack it to <ThisDir> with WinZip, FilZip, or any other programm you
prefer for those things.
I use the driver <ThisDir>/TMSetup/AR4/bcmwl5.inf
for ndiswrapper -i <file>.
The good thing is I can load the driver with out any crashes and can
controll the card via iwconfig wlan0 <option> <parameter>.
The bad part is it does not assosiate with my accesspoint which is a
LinkSys WMA54G (yet). But I am working on it ;-)
