Some wlan drivers that should work with my AsusLaptop.

My Laptop has an internal wlan card: Intel Corp. PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter

You can get this with lspci -v.

I'm trying the ndiswrapper because the other driver needs a newer kernel(2.6, 2.4.26?).

I downloaded the debian packages ndiswrapper and ndiswrapper-source from the project homepage. Im usingmake-kpkgto build the driver the debian way, see <a href="./DebianBuildKernel.html">DebianBuildKernel</a>. Hmm, didnt work. So I did make install.

I downloaded the windows chipsets from: * [[][windows driver]]

I install the driver with ndiswrapper -i w70n51.inf.

See installed drivers with ndiswrapper -l.

Load the module with modprobe ndiswrapper.

With iwconfig you can see the current configuration. Change the essid with iwconfig wlan0 essid myid

Save the configuration with iwconfig -m

Set the route to the wlan-router:

route add default gw

To set the WEP key (10 hexa digits for 64-bit key) to the following:

iwconfig wlan0 key xxxx-xxxx-xx restricted

Configuration for WlanRouter (t-online, germany):

VPI/VCI = 1/32
Category UBR without PCR

I'm using Siemens Gigaset SE515dsl.

Add the following to your =/etc/network/interfaces= on Debian:

iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    pre-up modprobe ndiswrapper
    post-down rmmod ndiswrapper
    wireless_keymode restricted
    wireless_key KEY
    wireless_essid ESSID
