    First, I must tell you that multiple threads about the same problem or subject are not allowed. Besides, it is just plain confusing!

    Now about the wireless. You will need to know more about the wireless in order to set it up. Enter this into a terminal (as root) and post the output.
    Code:
    # lspci
    
    Unless it is a USB wireless.
    
    # lsusb

    This would be the wireless.
    Code:
     Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03)
    A little searching found that this card should work with NDISwrapper
    http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/j...3/id,list_0-9/
    Look at cards #6, #7 and #10. Since NDISwrapper uses the WinXP driver, if you hve one that came with your wireless, I would try that one first.

    There also appears to be a new Linux driver for some Marvel Libertas chips.
    http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_....html#Libertas

    I don't know if it supports your card or not.
    http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers

    It seems to work only in Ad-hoc mode. So it may not be a viable choice. If it is showing up as a network connection, then there is a Linux driver that is already loading for it.

    I also see a mention of it needing firmware loaded to work. You could run this command, and then check for any mention of the wireless and firmware. It will output a lot, so check it all.
    Code:
    lspci

    I believe we will never get an answer from the original poster, however, the only way I know is with NDISwrapper so steps are as follows. (BTW I'm using openSuSE 11 GNOME x86)

    1. install ndiswraper
    2. Download the driver from this address:
    NDISwrapper
    (I used Nr. 4 BTW)
    3. Extract it in Desktop (or any other place you like)
    4. Open a terminal/Konsole change to the extracted directory and; as ROOT, type:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -i Mrv8000c.inf
    and to check if it's installed
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    that should display something like this:
    mrv8000c : driver installed
    device (11AB:1FAA) present
    5. Type
    Code:
     modprobe -m 
    depmod -a  # and the last
    modprobe ndiswrapper  # this will load the module
    6. Enjoy surfing

    The wireless internet was working fine under Windows XP, but I would like to move to Linux. The link in step 2 above takes me to ndiswrapper's wiki - I do not see a Nr. 4. Any help would be great. Doug
