    Just wondering if ndiswrapper supports BuffaloTech's WLI-USB-G54 (note, this is a different device than the WLI2-USB2-G54 which uses the Prism54 chipset)

    I believe the WLI-USB-G54 uses a BroadCom Chipset. Ndiswrapper reported 'invalid driver!' message using trying to install driver.

      OK,
      Fixed invalid driver message (had to manually copy driver files to /etc/ndiswrapper). But received the following message when loading ndiswrapper:
      FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.8/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Operation not permitted

      syslog shows:

      Any help appreciated.
