    Unhappy RTL 8187B Wireless on linux


    Hi everyone!

    I'm new to linux and in the past few weeks I've been trying to get my Realtek wireless card work. I've read a lot on this issue, but using the terminal and the command line didn't lead me to the solution, mostly beacuse I'm really not a skilled one.
    Using ndiswrapper didn't help me, nor did other options I read about. Although there are some distros that somewhat worked like Fedora or Mandriva, the connection was slow.

    My Question: Is there any other distro to support my wireless card >well< by default? Does anyone know about one?

    The card should be supported.

    In Ubuntu 9.04, you need the linux-backports-modules-intrepid package.
