    Need Driver for 2-Wire Wireless Adapter for 10.1


    I am installing Mandrake 10.1 on a computer built from parts. The motherboard is Dell. I am trying to install a 2-Wire PMCIA Wireless Adapter using a PCI adapter card. Numbers from the card: 02UT47333664, T/N 2B802825, P/N 019461/D.

    I have used this same adapter on a IBM T-20 laptop with this same OS, so I know it can work.

    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    lspci
    That'll tell us the chipset your wireless card uses, and therefore what driver you need.

    lspci does not recognize that an adapter is connected. I tried 2 different adapters, the 2-wire PCMIA mentioned previously and a D-Link DWL-G120 (USB).

    I think the problem with the 2-wire may be a connection issue.

    The D-Link showed up (as Unknown) when doing a hardware search in Configuration mode.

    I think I might have a shot at getting the D-Link to work, since the system at least recongizes that it is there.

    I think you're probably right - unfortunately I kinda suck at hardware, so I wont be able to help on that.

    Righto - the only thing to add at this point is that if something's connected by usb, you don't use the "lspci" command - you might be able to guess that instead, it's
