    Is Acer Aspire 3003WLMi Supported?


    Help me Convert!!

    All of my searching has lead to information that I can't comprehend. I'm as new as can be, but really wish to learn to appreciate Linux. I would much rather do this with working internet however, so, for my Acer Aspire 3003WLMi, can I get my wireless to work? I haven't been able to find the exact model of my laptop on either of these sites, does this mean I'm hooped?

    Yeah, you just have to use ndiswrapper and the windows driver for it, then blacklist the bcm43xx driver. It might sound complicated, but really it's only a few simple commands.
