    Network Adapter Drivers


    I want to learn about linux so i got Backtrack and installed it. I think it would be easier to learn if i only had to stay on Backtrack instead of switching between my Windows 7 and Backtrack. Ive been searching for this driver on google for about a week and have gotten irritated. Can you help??? Im looking for a Network Adapter driver for Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6250 AGN. Of course it is for Linux. Have they made that driver yet? I have read somewhere that it comes with drivers already on it. But then where would i look? I am asking here cause i am frusterated hopefully someone could help me. Also want to add that i hope this is the right place on the forums for this question. If not please tell me. I am not much at all knowledged aabout Linux yet so if you reply can you use words i can understand lol?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Are you using a wired, or wireless network connection?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    It could be that the chipset is already supported by a recent Linux kernel and a driver already exists on your system. Try these commands to show you what wireless devices are seen by your system:

    Code:
    iwconfig
    this shows all network devices:
    Code:
    cat /proc/net/dev
    It may be that you need firmware installed, in order for the adapter to be used. See this thread for details on that.
