Wireless card hell
Linux is really starting to irritate me, sorry guys, but it is.
I installed Ubuntu, and my wireless card worked out of the box but I couldn't get it working with my wired connection.
I installed Mandriva and I can't get it working with my wireless card, it gives me an error: "Your wireless card is disabled, please enable the wireless switch (RF kill switch) first."
My wired connection starts up just fine in Mandriva, but no websites load for me! wtf? I did everything I knew how to do with my settings, but nothing worked.
I would use Ubuntu, but it has way too many issues and I want to be happy overall with my distribution and not use a certain distribution because it's the only one that works with my wireless card.
So anyways, any idea how to get a Belkin wireless card setup on mandriva and any ideas why my wired connection isn't working properly in mandriva/ubuntu?

Dapper Dan, first of all I like your username. Reminds of of a George Clooney movie.
Secondly. since the time that I made that first post I uninstalled the Linux distribution that was giving me dharrhea and installed PCLinuxOS which has no problems with my wireless card.

Ulysses Everett McGill: Two weeks? That don't do me no good.
Pomade Vendor: Nearest Ford auto man's Bristol.
Ulysses Everett McGill: Hold on, I don't want this pomade. I want Dapper Dan.
Pomade Vendor: I don't carry Dapper Dan, I carry Fop.
Ulysses Everett McGill: Well, I don't want Fop, ******* it! I'm a Dapper Dan man!
Pomade Vendor: Watch your language, young feller, this is a public market. Now if you want Dapper Dan, I can order it for you, have it in a couple of weeks.
Ulysses Everett McGill: Well, ain't this place a geographical oddity. Two weeks from everywhere!

Lol! Now you've got me wanting to watch it again! When my wife and I saw it in the theatre the first time, and when it got to the part where Delmar thought the three sirens had turned Pete into a toad but had left his heart, I laughed so long and hard, other theatre goers were turning around and glaring at me... lol!

I'm not a huge Clooney fan, but that movie really was different, lots of fun, and very entertaining, and he was good in it. The DVD was certainly worth the purchase.oz
