I think it would be beneficial to have a list of known working working wifi/usb devices??
I have been promoting suggesting this since last October!

as it would help me improve wifi.sh

Using ndiswrapper is usually fairly simple from the command line.
$ sudo -s
# ndiswrapper -i /mnt/sda1/tce/your-windows-wireless.INF
# modprobe ndiswrapper
# exit

$ wifi.sh

Note: the -i option is to try to install the Windows driver, make sure both parts, usually two files are at the same path that you specify with the -i option. If you have your Windows directory mounted you specifiy the actuall path to your Windows wireless files. Otherwise copy them to a static location.

Thanks Robert.
I followed your instructions but I don`t have any .inf files
just .dlls.
I ran  $ wifi.sh and it said...must be root.

Unzip your driver package for WindowsXP  and there will be some DriverName.cat, DriverName.sys. and definitely an DriverName.inf file

at the command line enter $:  sudo wifi.sh
