I am trying to get a Dell Truemobile 1450 minipci wlan to work under SuSE10.2. I am using ndiswrapper 1.37 and followed andrewd18's tutorial step by step. Ndiswrapper seems to install fine. I used the following drivers linked off the ndiswrapper wiki:

Card: Dell Wireless 1450 (802.11a/b/g) Dual-Band WLAN miniPCI Card

* Chipset: Broadcom BCM4309 (rev 03)
* pciid: 14e4:4324
* Driver: ftp://ftp.dell.com/network/R90501.EXE
* Other: Use bcmwl5a.inf in AR directory. ndiswrapper 1.0, kernel 2.6.10, gentoo. The ndiswrapper module has difficulties to start if your notebook isn't connected to the sector.

Okay, so when I issue "ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5a.inf", I get the message "Forcing Parameter IBSSGMode from 0 to 2" which I understand means I need a different driver.

But... I installed the exact driver off the ndiswrapper wiki, so how do I find a driver if the one they recommend doesn't seem to work?

I'm a newb so keep things simple - many thanks for the help.
