On my desktop, I can't use ndiswrapper in 64 bit Linux because a 64 bit windoze driver is not available except from m$ updates and that's buggy as hell. I've tested the wireless network adapter with 32 bit Backtrack 2 and 3 beta, and it works no problems. Here's my plan to get wireless working in 64 bit FC8 Linux. I've got a second older slower computer. I've installed the latest Debian Etch 32 bit, and I'll be upgrading it from stable to testing. I can get wireless internet working in it. Now I've got a crossover cable running from it to my second network adapter on FC8 desktop to the Debian Etch computer. The Debian computer has the usb wireless network adapter in it. Debian doesn't run any type of gui, and it has about an uptime of a month since I installed it. I want to share the wireless internet received by

Now everywhere I go on the internet and ask for help, I'm getting the answer, use the gui firestarter program. I'm a linux commando.
