    It's good practice to always search before posting. If you Google 'wireless howto', you get something like this. That should get you started.

    i have done several searches and end up with people trying to help but only covering a certain area of the installation procedure. and anytime i have ever typed howto i get results that had nothing to do with what i was looking for in the first place at the top of my results and spend lots of time delving into many pages looking for the real pages.

    thats exactly what you have to do. Linux hasn't hit the true mainstream yet, so much information is quite obscure. In my opinion, wireless info is one of the hardest things to find when your new to this like me. Just keep looking and trying, you'll eventually find it!

    yeah it seems wireless technology on linux is more an art than science lol i have learned way too much about how they work from this experience.

    carlosponti: I *just* got my ipw2100 drivers working, for centrino notebooks. it took 15 hours, several kernel rebuilds, and alot of help from the good people at #ipw2100 on freenode.

    Are you using centrino tech?
