I am a qualified Microsoft engineer, so moving over to Linux has been a struggle, considering i have been on windows since i started in computers many years back.
I have been using linux now on and off for the last 3 years. Every now and again, something will irratate me (and often make me go back to windows). The one thing i least expected to irratate me was setting up wireless.
However, this time, Fedora Core 6 has managed to disapoint. I have been using Ubuntu Live CD, and i plugged in my Wireless network card, and all worked with no problems. However, after installing FC6, it refueses to accept my Belkin PCMCIA wireless card.
I have tried to use NDISWrapper (which makes no sense to anyone use to windows). I have also had a look at the Linux.org PCMCIA pages, and the make install refuses to work. Are there any drivers for the Belkin PCMCIA F5D7010 wireless network card?
When i run DMESG, the PCMCIA card is detected, but the drivers are not installed.
This post may come across as very anti-linux, but I am starting to love linux. The only issue is plug and play compatibility.
I am hoping some one can put me out of my dilema
I have searched all over Google to no avail,
