    Default Help disabling wireless card so i can use usb wireless.

    I Just installed ndiswrapper and got my dell 1450 usb installed but cannot figure out how to disable my onboard wireless card to see if i did install it correctly and to start using it. there is a wireless button on my laptop that i press and it will disable it but if i do ifconfig wlan0 up that will just turn on my onboard again. Any suggestions?

    Well you're usb adapter probably isn't wlan0 then.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Is there anyway of providing a kind of tutorial on installing the driver for dell 1450 usb device, please? Because it's a real problem for the it's users: there is no tutorial on the internet on how to install it!
    Thank you very much!
