    Hi

    Thanks for making ndiswrapper!

    Ive compiled and installed ndiswrapper, got the xp drivers and now when i do

    ndiswrapper -l

    it says the driver and hardware is present

    Now when i get to modprobe ndiswrapper, it dosnt produce any error message but when i check dmesg the only thing it says (well it says loads but the only thing that looks like its from ndiswrapper) is

    No IPV6 routers present.

    I can see wlan0 in iwconfig and have followed that part of the setup but i cant connect to the net! any suggestions? THis is the output i see

    ifconfig....
    wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:98:C5:78:32

      I checked again, and i do have the messge in dmesg that the drivers are loaded ok and so everything seems ok.

      I get the No IPv6 routers present when i do dhcpcd wlan0.

      Any ideas how to get arround that? Why does it have to be IPv6??? i thought v6 and v4 were similar anyway!

      So i can get the driver working, just cant configure suse to use it

      When i check in kwifimanager i can see a little graph of the signal and it seems to woble up and down like i'd expect - ie not constantly zero or 100% so it must be working a bit. also it finds the mac address of my router when i give it the right essid, so it must be communicating at some level....

      Any help would really be appriciated.

      Also, I cant get into ur irc chat room!

      Josh
