Newbie seeks help installing D-link dwl-650+ drivers
I'm total newbie to the world of Linux. I installed Mandrake 10.0 Official on my laptop (model: Asus L3800 series). Everything seems to be in working order minus the wireless LAN adapter. The LAN adapter in question is a D-link DWL-650+.
I've tried looking online for solutions, but so far, I've come across some very technical answers that I can't understand. I've read that mine is a common problem, due to the chipset used in manufacturing the card (along with those of other brands). I've tried solving the problem with a couple of friends of mine, without any success.
Does anyone know how to solve the problem? I've come across people talking about "porting the drivers". If that's one way to tackle the problem, how do I do it?
I apologize if the problem seems dumb.
Hoping for some feedback.
