wireless internet on redhat linux ?

Hi,

Could some please help me in configuring wireles internet on redhat linux installed on my laptop.

When I booted using windows, I saw the following, which I think is the name of my laptop's wireless card:

Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection

I have run the following steps after seeing a forum:

extract it with the command

Code:
tar zxvf ndiswrapper-version.tar.gz
This will create ndiswrapper-version directory. Change to that
directory and run
Code:
make uninstall make
Login as root and run
Code:
make installlspci -n
Once the driver has been unpacked, locate .inf and .sys files. If
necessary, move these files so both .inf and .sys are in the same
directory. Some drivers also come with firmware files, such as
fwrad16.bin etc. These files also should be in the same
directory. Then install the Windows driver with
Code:
ndiswrapper -i netw3.infndiswrapper -l
This should report
"driver present, hardware present"
Code:
modprobe ndiswrapper
I got the following commands in a forum:
Code:
su -ifconfig eth0 updhclient eth0
But still no internet:

ifconfig

o/p :

lo no wireless connections
eth0 no wireless connections

Regards,
Girish.
