Knoppix



I have a broadcom wireless card that doesn't show up in lspci.

When I do lspci there is an entry that says:
Bridge: Unknown Device aaaa:1112

When I go to use my windows driver in ndiswrapper, after the install, it says driver present but nothing about hardware present. When I try to assign the driver to aaaa:1112 it doesn't work.

Please help

Hi thrillhouse,

I have been looking for something simple for wireless for the last 2 years - the solution - VectorLinux 6.0 (alternatively DreamLinux 3.5 rc4 - unfortunately the final release did not work - for me). Both the distros mentioned used graphical interfaces for the install and only required the windows *.inf file installing to work - lot easier than Ubuntu. A word of advice though - if you have an onboard network card (built into mobo as most are these days) be sure to disable it in the bios otherwise your Linux distro will pick this up first and may prevent wireless card being picked up properly.

Best regards,
