WMwifi.dsl installs but then it won't start. I see it in the dock for a split second then it closes. Any ideas? This is on a HD install.

Please try WMwifi.tar.gz (Version 0.5) in mydsl_testing and let us know the result. This is wmwifi.tar.gz.md5.txt:-

My guess is that you will have to enable apm in your bootline for wmwifi to work.
Normally, DSL defaults to noapm as one of it's boot options.

Try running it from a shell to see any feedback ..

Will WMWifi support my Linksys WUSB54G USB adaptor? or would I have to use an actual PCI card?

I was just trying WMwifi.tar.gz on my lappy and it only shows up in the slit for a second and than goes away. I ran "wmwifi" from the command line and it gives me a Segmentation fault each time. Can anyone tell me how to get this going?

Does the same thing for me,
both the old, and the new version..

Can you tell me what your Wifi card model is? What is the message when you run "iwconfig"?

I have a Netgear MA401 card. When run from the command line it just says 'Segmentation fault'.
