Description of problem:
When I upgrade from 667 to a higher version of the Fedora 3 kernel, it no longer sees my Linksys card I have at wlan0. I type iwconfig and nothing is there. I currently use ndiswrapper for the driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup the card on the 667 kernel using ndiswrapper
2. Upgrade the kernel to either of the two newer versions
3. Card is no longer recognized by OS
Expected Results: I would expect the card configuration to stay the same through a minor kernel upgrade.
Assigning to wireless-tools.
You probably have to rebuild your ndiswrapper modules, etc. Note that those
modules aren't shipped with Fedora, are binary only, and aren't supported.
