    Hi,

    I got a VIA Soloman VT6655 PCI Wireless LAN card and tried it with ndiswrapper driver v1.16 under Feodra Core 4.

    After compiling ndiswrapper driver v1.16 completely and load it, I met two problems.

    Problem 1:
    After loading the driver and trying to get IP from wireless ap(DHCP Server), but the wireless LAN card can't get ip from the ap.

    I also search google and can't get solution.

    Test Step:

    ndiswrapper VNWL.inf

    modprobe ndiswrapper if_name=wlan0

    ifconfig wlan0 up

    Problem 2:
    When the wireless LAN card can't get IP from dhcp, i tried the use static IP.

    After setting the static IP to VT6655, the wireless network can work. Functions of telnet, ping and ftp can work normal.

    telnet 140.118.2.100 <-- Test PASS

    ping www.google.com <-- Test PASS

    But only "http" function can't work.
    When using browser to visit website, browser will pop "The document contains no data." message.

    Any help thanks.

    Following is my test step and wlan0 config file

    Content of /etc/sysconfig/networking-script/wlan0:
    KEY=0123456789
    DEVICE=wlan0
    ONBOOT=no
    BOOTPROTO=dhcp

    BOOTPROTO=static

    IPADDR=192.168.1.33

    NETMASK=255.255.255.0

    IPV6INIT=no
    TYPE=Wireless
    ESSID=BLW-04GM
    MODE=Managed
    SECURITYMODE=open
