wireless on ibm thinkpad r50p
I am new with Linux and now I need help to make my wireless work. I have Redhat9 with the kernel2.4.20. My wireless card is "11a/b/g Wireless LAN Mini PCI Adapter" and I have an IBM thinkpad R50p.
when I go in the "internet configuration wizzard" he doesn't enumerate my hardware in the list of the wireless cards. Also the little green light on my laptop with the wireless symbol isn't on, but in windows it is on, even when I am not wireless in the internet. Perhaps I have to turn the wireless card on, but I don't know how.
I googled a little bit and then I downloaded korinoco and madwifi, which are drivers that should work. But I don't know what I should do after that and I don't know if I have installed them rightly?
the normal ethernet works without problems.
Does anybody can say me what I can do?
