How do I use the wireless card on my hp pavilion zd7000?
I am new to linux, I have been trying various linux distros for a few months, and installed fedora core 3, suse 9.1, knoppix at one time or another.
I have an hp pavilion zd7000 and I am trying to get linux to use the wireless. Right now I have windowsXP and SuSE 9.1 installed on my laptop. The windowsXP driver was easy to install for the windows os, but I don't know how to install linux driver for SuSE 9.1 to use the wireless card. I have read this post: linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?threadid=229967
Forum member basd had the same exact laptop and used the same linux distro and got the wireless card to work.
My built-in wireless card is made by broadcom. I went to the broadcom website: broadcom.com/drivers/downloaddrivers.php
and downloaded the linux drivers.
Maybe I downloaded the wrong linux driver, I tried to install the driver called: Linux (i386, IA64, and x86-64) on the broadcom website above. I think I lack step-by-step instructions to install the rpm. I've been trying to get the wireless card to work for about a week. Any help would be much appreciated.
