a wireless connection
hello, i installed mandriva linux today. when i try to use my wireless card to connect to the internet, it says i need firmware. it told me to get it at http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/ i went to that page, but there are different link's and i don't know which to choose. and when you click on a link you get more links, i am confused. what do i download?
First question is did you have it working on windows?
If so you have the files in C:Windows/system32 (I think) You just need to point to them. If you can't find them use the cd that came with your card. and just locate the right file. If it asks for a .ini file then find the right one. etc. If you don't have a cd, go to the manufaturures (bad sp) website and download the correct windows driver. then point to the right file in mandriva.
It took me a while to get my wirless going right but once you do, you will probably kick yourslef at how easy it really was.
You can just google your wireless driver card name for linux drivers, Thats what I did since I lost my windows drivers CD that came with laptop and I googled broadcom wireless linux drivers
