    what distribution are you using?
    mandriva automatically made my wireless stuff work.

    solution? look for the wifi drivers.

    Hello, and welcome to Linux Forums.

    More information on the Linus distribution and the kernel version that you are using would be very helpful. If you are unsure of how to find this info, read through this How-To:
    Wireless Setup - Start Here

    This is the wireless card:
    Code:
    03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter [168c:001c] (rev 01)
    It actually has a driver in most recent distros/kernels. I have the exact same one in my Eee PC, and it works with Fedora 10 and the ath5k driver module.

    There is one exception to this. Ubuntu for some reason has flagged the driver as "Experimental"! They have disabled it, and offer a proprietary driver that can be added later. This is one reason that I dislike Ubuntu.

    You can always install the latest open-source wireless drivers by downloading and compiling them from here:
    Download - Linux Wireless

    I will need the distro and kernel version before I can give specific info on installing this driver package.

    Open a terminal and type uname -r for the kernel version.

    I believe that Mint uses the Ubuntu repositories, and I discovered that the ath5k driver can be installed from them. Check out this link:

    8.10 Release Notes | Ubuntu

    Seems it is available by installing the linux-backports-modules:
    Ubuntu -- Details of package linux-backports-modules-2.6.27-11-generic in intrepid-updates
    Ubuntu -- Filelist of package linux-backports-modules-2.6.27-11-generic/intrepid-updates/i386

    I don't know if it is in any earlier versions than the 2.6.27-11-generic version.

    If you update it most likely will give you a newer kernel. You then can add the linux-restricted-modules packages.

    I believe that Linux Mint is the same as the distro that it is based on, Ubuntu. In Ubuntu there is no root user, and therefore no su. The first user that is created is granted root type privileges. That user's password is then treated as the root (or su) password. When you need to run a command with root privileges, you start it with the "sudo" command. When it asks for a password, you use the password of the first user created (you).
