    Trying to get the Wi-Fi working


    hi everyone

    I was following this tutorial to configure SuSE to receive the Wi-Fi signal i have at home.
    I got to the part where it says to get the windows drivers copied to be installed... and i don't know which drivers it's talking about. is there some one who can help me with this?

    Any help?thanx

    Hi
    Following up on the subject... I've found driver's for my WiFi card on the manufacturers page. Thing is, I'm a bit confused because the file i've downloaded is a *.tgz file whereas the file type on the tutorial is a *.inf file.

    Is there any possibility that this is the file for my driver and i just have to install it like it was a *.inf file?

    Also, the guy that wrote the tutorial told me to look into the *.tgz file to see if there is a *.inf file. How do I do that?

    Any help will be aprecciated!

    Uncompress the .tgz, with:
    Code:
    tar zxf *.tgz
