Wireless on Acer Aspire 5100
 
hello. I just purchased a laptop, Acer Aspire 5100-5022. I'm running Fedora 6, gnome. I am at a complete loss on how to configure my wireless internet. I'm not sure what drivers to acqure nor how to configure my wireless internet if i do get them! I believe the wireless lan model is Acer InviLink™ 802.11a/b/g. Any help would be great. Thank you.

I thought that model was only a b/g wireless. Anyways search the HCL section here to see what others may be using. More than likely if broadcom then you will need to use ndiswrapper with the windows inf driver. There are some broadcom drivers but it may not work on that specfic chipset. Some work fine, Some are flakey and others just don't.
