    Hello,

    I am trying to make Linksys wpc54g v2 card working on my
    Fedora Core 3 machine. I successfully installed ndiswrapper
    v.0.12.
    [root@localhost rhee]# ndiswrapper -l
    Installed ndis drivers:
    lstinds driver present, hardware present
    I see the green light on in the card.

    But when I tried to activate eth1(I assigned eth0 for wired),
    then I get the following error message.
    Determining IP information for eth1... failed; no link present.
    Check cable?
    I don't know what I am missing. Here are a couple of
    commands I ran.

    [root@localhost rhee]# /sbin/ifconfig -a

    Does anyone have an idea? Please help!

      Nevermind. I got my wireless working in Fedora 3.
      All I had to do was to enter the correct ESSID and Channel.
