Hi devil,

Thanks for your reply.. I try with ndiswrapper.. And it works, infact says that driver and hardware are OK, but when I do modprobe ndiswrapper the shell freeze.... Any ideas?

Not sure.

Did you reboot? Sometimes reboot helps.

Other distros require ndiswrapper -m

I think Kanotix already has this built-in, ndiswrapper -m gives error message in Kanotix, but it doesn't do any harm

Sometimes there are IRQ conflicts which need to be fixed by blacklist

If the card not turning on is the real cause of the problem there may be a configuration file in /etc you could edit to fix
