sorry about posting this but i just got ver 10.1 from a friend and this is my first time using it and i cant figure out how to use my network card. right now im using a different computer and it is slow as hell so any help would be greatly appreciated
Post more about the situation. You really have a LOT to left to the mind.
i am using mandrake 10.1 and my card is Wg311v2
if you need anything else can you be more specific i dont know what else you might need
I mean like hardware and what types of hardware u have.
p4 2.26 ghz
PC chips M963gv motherboard
Netgear Wg311 v2
seagate 100 g HD
onboard video and sound
Okay. With that info I can work with. I'll edit this post when I find the answer.
What computer do you have? Or laptop? (Is it Dell, or Acer or sumptin?) I've found some interesting info about some laptop's/computers.
This will pose some problems... Try to get the drivers from the site here
Although they are for Windows, see if it will work. If not, I'm sorry.:(
You need to know which chipset your card uses before you know which driver you need, so open a terminal window and login as root and launch this command, and post back here with the output.
I believe this is an atheros chipset but I'm not sure. If it is an Atheros, then you need madwifi.
MadWifi - Trac
From the begining you are not telling us your pc's specification clearly. To find a suitable driver for your hardware you have to know which types of h/w you are using. So fugure out this first and then search.
