    Solution to Wireless on Presario F700


    I just thought i would share this because after trying hundreds of solutions none of them worked.
    I have a Compaq Presario F700 and an Atheros AR5007 wireless card

    To get it working I used ndiswrapper with the driver net5416.inf (this is the xp not vista driver)
    This made the wireless card work along with the led light by the on/off switch

    Thanks for posting that weazol! I wish more folks would share solutions in the same way. Your thoughtfulness to post it will help many new Linux users in the same situation find a solution. Good work.
