A few weeks ago my wifi went flaky. I didn't need it at the time so I started using a cable connection. About a week ago I wanted wireless again, so I decided to uninstall bcw43xx and install ndiswrapper. To uninstall bcw43xx, I removed disabled the device in system-config-networking and then removed bc243xx with rpm -3. I also did an rmmod. Then I downloaded ndiswrapper and built it and did a make install. Thats as far as I got. I did not set up the wireless device in system-config-network. Anyway, now lately my computer is freezing. If I do an alt-del-f6 and bring up a text terminal, I see the following: Printk: 19 messages suppressed. SoftMAC: Assertion Failed(0) at: net/ieee80211/softmac/ieee80211softmac_wx.c:306 ieee80211moftca_wx_get_rate(). How do I fix this ? It appears that bcw43xx isn't uninstalled.
