We will start by getting information on your wireless card. Issue the following cmd on your terminal:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
lspci | grep 802


And if the output is similar to the following, proceed to the next step.
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
02:04.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)


Download the driver files,

PASSWORD : http://tecpages.com

Then install ndiswrapper on your system. For Paldo its installed by default. Install everything from the command prompt or using ndiswrapper front end.

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
ndiswrapper -mi "path to the inf file"

Verify the installation using,
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
ndiswrapper -l


Otherwise install ndisgtk with this cmd:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
sudo upkg-install ndisgtk


Go on the Gnome-Menu to SYSTEM > ADMINISTRATION > WINDOWS WIRELESS DRIVERS

After entering the root-password click on INSTALL NEW DRIVER to install the windows driver.
