m5310 wireless card help, does not seem to recognize the card


hello

i have decided to try linux on another hard drive that i had laying around. i installed mandrake 10.1 i was able to get the lan connection to work immediatly. but it does not recognize the wireless card. my laptop is an emachines m5310 laptop. i am not sure about the model of the card that is in the laptop. thanks for the help


edit

in the hardware thing in the control center it seems to recognize the card. it seems to only need drivers

yahoo group

Well, at least that link also mentions that there was yahoo group specfically geared toward your laptop. The linuxaunt solution was posted by this guy over a year ago. Perhaps other drivers have been found to be compatible since then, and this yahoo group might know more about it.

Broadcom cards will work with ndiswrapper.
2nd Google hit for that chipset was the LQ HCL: http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...hp?product=810
