yea...after a few hrs I'd rather just buy another wifi
card that works out of the box.

Anyone have one that works with 0 effort?  This
ndiswrapper stuff no workie.

lspci (snipped):

03:02.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g
PCI

core2linux:/home/themagicm/downloads # ndiswrapper -i
Rt61.INF 
installing rt61 ...
core2linux:/home/themagicm/downloads # 

core2linux:/home/themagicm/downloads # ndiswrapper -l
rt61 : driver installed
        device (1814:0301) present (alternate driver:
rt61pci)
core2linux:/home/themagicm/downloads # 

core2linux:/home/themagicm/downloads # modprobe
ndiswrapper
core2linux:/home/themagicm/downloads # 


When I go to install a wireless card I manually type
ndiswrapper as the module, rt2500, rt61 etc and it
still does not work.

TIA
