    Wireless On Linux + Airsnarf


    Hello,

    I am completely new to Linux I just installed it a few days ago and have a dual boot system of Linux and Windows on my laptop. But the problem is I have a wireless internet connection Windows detects it fine and I can use it but on Linux I do not know how to set it up when I got to Connection Manager it can't find any Wireless adapters even though I have one built in my laptop.

    Also the only reason I installed Linux on my computer was too use Air snarf so too use air snarf would you need a Wireless adapter too use it.



    Thanks Hope It makes Sense

    If you can'y find any native linux drivers for your wireless card(cards are proprietary -no open specs for people to build their own drivers- and vendors are less interested in making drivers for linux than for win) than you'll probably have to use
    ndiswrapper
    which is a linux wrapper for Win XP drivers. You use you XP driver with linux
