Broadcom1490 wiki procedure, installed ndiswrapper but no mo

Post by coolarm » 2008/11/04 14:29:35

All,

I am trying to get Broadcom 1490 Wireless to work. I tried
yum install ndiswrapper dkms-ndiswrapper
but it installed only one package called dkms-ndiswrapper

I am unable to perform
modprobe ndiswrapper
which is unable to locate such a module.

Instead I unzipped the broadcom Windows drivers and did
ndiswrapper -i path_to_bcmwl5.inf

It installed the driver and I can locate it in
lspci and
ndiswrapper -l

But the LED on my tablet doesnt come on and also I dont find a device like wlan0.

Please help me
