    Hi,

    Let me start off by saying that this is my first time in using linux.
    I am using Fedora which I installed 2 days ago by downloading the ISO images. My computer is a dual boot with XP.

    Now, I wanted to get my wireless card to work so i downloaded ndiswrapper. My motorola card is there in the list. Since I am new, I followed the procedure on http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/phpwiki/index.php/Installation

    I came upto step 3: Load module. Here is what my dmesg says:

    ndiswrapper: using irq 10
    divert: allocating divert_blk for wlan0
    wlan0: ndiswrapper ethernet device 00:0c:e5:4f:ee:38 using driver bcmwl5
    wlan0: encryption modes supported: WEP
    ndiswrapper: driver bcmwl5 (Motorola,09/24/2003, 3.40.20.0) added
    ndiswrapper: driver bcmwl5a (Motorola,09/24/2003, 3.40.20.0) added
    ndiswrapper (iw_set_encr:672): removing encryption key 0 failed (C0010015)

    Can someone tell me the significance of he last line? My wireless card should have started at this point right?
