    Problems with Wireless networking


    I just installed linux on my friends fujitsu laptop, with a Cisco Systems Aironet 340 wireless adapter. The computer recognizes the device however it will not activate or connect to any network. I have downloaded drivers for the device however, being new to linux I can't figure out how to install them. If anyone can give me a hand here, I will be very relieved.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    im guessing the driver ar ein .at.gz or .tgz form (if they are rpm run "rpm -Uivh filename")

    first off unzip the file by runnign
    tar xzf filename (for .tar.gz files)
    tar xjf filename (for .tar.bz2 files)

    now run
    less INSTALL
    (there shoudl be an install file in there soewhere)
    this install file will describe what to run.
