    Wireless LAN on Linux


    I have installed Fedora Core 1 on a Partition, but have still been unable to connect to the internet. This is because DLink doesn't have a Linux driver for the Wireless Card that I have in my computer. The router is downstairs so there isn't much chance for me to run a cable down through the ground. So I was wondering if anyone knew a wireless network company who makes drivers for Fedora.

    Thanks in advance,

    There is not many manufactors that do a driver for Linux,
    however, most if D-Link newer adapter uses the Atheros chipset, which is supported by MadWifi drivers.

    So orionco wireless adapters work under fedora as plug and play. I have an airlink101 and if you install the linux drivers it should work fine. This is a how-to I created for the device.

    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
