    Broadband and wireless networking in Linux


    We recently had broadband set up in our house and it's being accessed in Windows from the family PC via a Netgear DG834G Integrated ADSL Modem/Wireless Firewall/Router. My laptop accesses the broadband via the wireless network and so does the other tower. My question is how do I get wireless and broadband set up on the tower and laptop with Slackware 10 on them?

    The tower with Linux on has a Belkin 802.11g wireless adapter in it which I have yet to configure in Linux and I haven't done anything in Linux with the wireless card in my laptop either, so I need help sorting that out aswell.

    Before I can help you, I'll need a couple more specifics on the wireless cards. If you could tell the model of the Belkin, and then the Brand / Model on the other one, that would be great.
    Thanks,

    All I can really tell you about the card I put in the tower is that it's a Belkin Wireless 802.11g Network Adapter. Can't really find anything more specific than that. The most specific details I can get for the card in my laptop are that it's a IEEE 802.11b MiniPCI Wireless Network Adapter.

    EDIT: Just found the page on Belkin's website for the card in my tower:

    A quick google of "F5D7000 Linux Driver" reveals http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...p?product=1870
