How do I get a Broadcom Dell Wireless 1350 WLAN Mini-PCI card to work?
Do I need to download something? Or do I need to reconfigure stuff? (Perhaps I should post under 'newbie')
I want to have linux, but I can't do without my wireless. I am currently under XP, but I have had this problem in the past and I want to know how to fix this before I install linux again.
*edit* I went to Gentoo's website and I'm not the only one to have this problem. I found a form where someone was just as confused as I am. So I think I can follow them- and hopefully my problems won't stray from theirs.
If I remember correctly (and there's no guarantee of that ;)) many Broadcom devices work well using NDISwrapper, combined with the WinXP/Win2000 driver files.
NDISwrapper is a wrapper driver, designed for using WinXX drivers under Linux, which is not really a lovely solution, but one that works in a pinch.
Google for NDISwrapper, go to the website, and check the 'supported/working devices' list(s) and see if your device is listed there.
Good luck :)
