Sub_title: BCMWL5 wirless card

I am using Puppy 2.14. I tried the NDISWrapper. My home wireless network is "wide open" but I still can't get it to successfully load the driver and find the network. The driver doesn't "turn on" the NIC.
any suggestions?
the wired NIC works just fine.

What is the exact name of the of the driver file you are trying to load? I'm assuming that the wifi is know to work in winx? Please provide detailed info in how you are going about loading this file. I've accessed the required .inf file through a usb stick & it's worked every time I didn't get an auto load with the wiz & ended up using ndiswrapper.

Ndiswrapper has worked on all i've tried. Course, haven't tried it on everything thats out there & there were many times that I was doing something wrong when using ndiswrapper & it wasn't working out. I did run across some strange situations that prevented a load & ended up sticking to a way that I knew worked for me.
