KnoppMyth R5D1 basic setup / TV listings for Perth Australia

Posted 12-11-2006 at 03:41 AM by Caysho

This is based on these two walkthroughs: This has more information about the rest of the setup than what I have here. Small and concise.

I've blown up my box twice now, and took notes both times :)
This now takes me about 30 minutes to do.

Stop the backend first

Question regarding configuring wireless network card type Netgear WG511, V.3

Posted 12-07-2006 at 02:43 PM by Dariusz Szydlowski

Hello everyone familiar to linux.
Since changing the OS on my laptop, the wireless network card (Netgear WG511, V3) is not powered up at all (therefore, obviously is not working). None of the LED lights is on(there are two lights: one for power on, the other one for activity.)Because this card was working in Windows XP platform, I am sure it is not damaged.

All grown up ...

My day job is a golf course superintendent in south florida. I repair and rebuild laptops for fun and not much profit. I am running out of room here in my little garage apartment. Here is how it works. I buy something, most times laptops, buy the parts to fix them and try to sell them for more than I have in it.
