Firstly, there are two types of Netgear WGv2’s in circulation. When you have installed it properly with yum, and when you acquire the full root privileges then you will be able to proceed. While they have been working reasonably well as wireless adapters using the RTL drivers for a while, WPA was always exceedingly difficult to set up correctly. WGv3 can be used with the rtl driver or ndiswrapper if you must. However, a computer without internet is just about useless to me. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If anything, it seems more stable after moving to WPA, and it’s more secure to boot! Hello milesstandish The usual reason for the message “command “ndiswrapper” does not exist” is that you have not acquired the full root privileges before you issue the command, either that or you have not installed the ndiswrapper program from livna.
