    Is TrendNet TEW-441PC wifi card Supported?

    sorry for the forum ressurect/hijack, but I have a TrendNet TEW-441PC wifi card jammed in the side of my NEC VersaProVA10J laptop.

    is this card compatible with Linux? I really need to be able to use the wifi at school! I looked for drivers and got nowhere........

    also, the school uses weird LEAP internet or something similar.... will that work with Linux/?

    To find more detailed info about the card, run this command and post the output.

    Code:
    lspci
    Also, which Linux distro are you using?

    I did all that lspci stuff and found that I needed the madwifi drivers off livna

    Im on FC8, and under my network devices, I have a wlan0, but no matter what kind of options I try for it, it cant get an IP address for it..

    You should have a ath0 entry. I assume that you followed the directions in their entirety?

    I seem to have some trouble with my wireless on Fedora 8. It will only connect to an AP at bootup. I can't seem to change AP's on the fly. At my LUG meeting, I had to boot up, let it see the AP (unencrypted), and then reboot. It then connected after the reboot, there was no password needed, so I don't understand this.

    I really wanted to make Fedora work on my laptop, but this is not acceptable. I know that it works fine under my Suse 10.2 partition. I guess I will wait for Suse 11.0 to upgrade.

    this seems to be the same issue i have.

    Thankfully Fedora is running on a battery-less laptop that i just use for linux work for school.......so I dont have to worry too much. its just one less wire in my desk tangle....

    hopefully a fix shows up
